I don't see how "The Negotiator" can possibly be seen as negotiating anything. Those are some brutally cute eyes going on there.

Pardon me, would you have any bags of crap?

This is one of those shirt designs that I would love on a poster, but not so much as a shirt. Dear Woot, please start making posters out of every design. Thanks.

I'm confused. Is this shirt intended to represent a cat's resumé? "Resume" is a verb that means "to begin to do or continue to do something after a pause." "Resumé" is a noun that means a short summary of job qualifications and skills, usually used when applying for jobs. I worked as a career counselor for several years; even in English, "resumé" requires the accent aigu (at least if you want to be hired for a job not of the "want fries with that" variety).

I know it's hard to type accents on American keyboards, but surely it's not that hard to include on a shirt?

For the same reasons that you love bunny shirts and really want to give me one of your copies of UnNinjaI?

Stylist...do we REALLY need to see that orifice?

Might be funny for a picture on a time-wasting website, but not on a shirt. AND it has that orifice....

I definitely would have bought this shirt if not for the Stylist picture. That one thing prevents me from being comfortable wearing it at work. Ah, it's too bad, all the other pictures are so cute.

Adorable. The only thing missing is "Dog Trainer" or "Dog Torturer" depending on point of view!

Being a cat owner but an English teacher before that, I just won't buy this shirt because of that (not) little mistake.

May I suggest Woot enforce a proper language use policy on the designs submitted? Unless it's part of the joke, I feel like a dork adorning my chest with embarrassing mistakes.

Well, if ya wanna get all technical about it, it is actually résumé. If you are going to accept the alternate spelling of resumé, then you might as well accept the other alternate spelling of resume.

The write-up name and first couple of paragraphs tricked me into thinking I was reading about a really smart mouse devising a diabolical plot to frame the cat. Alas, it was just a fat cat with a quaint name.

Hey ThunderThighs, methinks this could be the resolution as well for the résumé/resumé/resume quandary!

Ok guys, seriously, do you read these comments? For the love of god, link the big image from the blog post. Link it somewhere, link it somehow. I yearn for the days when I could click the image and it would become a bigger image. Why did this stop? It would be so easy to add back. Please add it back.

That would be mighty fine feedback for the Beta Feedback button at the top of the page.

RE: Resume vs Resumé vs Résumé

I've already asked for the correction. I suggest that we go with Merriam-Webster's spelling which is Résumé.

It should be fixed tomorrow morning.

Unfortunately, that's just the title on the sale. That doesn't fix the shirt. I'll pass your info on there too though.

UPDATE: after much discussion (a couple emails) and interviewing various cats (no, really!) we've found that while cats are aware of the basic rules of using an apostrophe for possessive nouns, they were completely unaware of accents. Therefore, we feel this shirt accurately reflects a cat's usage of the word 'Resume'.

Keep in mind that we interviewed your standard American domestic cats.

^This.^

This was a conscious decision, not a typo. ;P At this point in the english language, I see résumé, resumé, and resume regularly. I figured if Woot thought it was problematic, they would ask for a version with résumé. I've got that. If they want a version with the accents, that's cool by me.

Stylist is here to stay though. It's my favorite! It was actually the doodle that inspired the shirt, from way back in the "Shirt You'd Wear To A Job Interview" derby.

Thanks for the support folks! Super psyched to see this one printed.

Holy crap, It's a shirt with cats on it. Is proper English seriously a huge factor in this? Show me a cat who knows proper English. Plus, the cat licking himself has a butthole.

"Resume" in the sense used here is not often used in the UK, so I'm not buying it. Shame really, I have all the other cat shirts ever.

Sorry off topic (cute shirt!)...How come it doesn't show how many shirts are sold for old shirts in the stats? Or am I just missing it.

Error aside, I'm not buying anymore shirt.woots, period. The last one I bought was a women's medium, but they sent me a regular medium. I sent in a support ticket. My mother in law bought me a shirt in women's large (she seems to think my boobs are bigger than they are), and it came in regular large. I sent in another support ticket.

Haven't heard anything back.

Haz two useless shirts. Can haz cheezburger nau?

You're not missing them but we are. Here's a thread on that very topic with responses from Shirt Staff.
