Which in addition to being super offensive is selling far better than it should, proving that not only do the people prefer non-artistic designs (which this might be) but they also want juvinile humor.

Not as much as they want cats though.

I wonder how many women will want that word in their chest area. Ugh.

Isn't the symbol in the lightbulb's eyes the Nook symbol? And doesn't Amazon have something to do with Woot? And doesn't Amazon have something to do with the Kindle?

Good to know Woot is getting a sense of humor here. When I submitted this for a derby, it was rejected for being to negative (reason: "Ouch").

In for one. Love the colors. The message, although abrasive is funny if you do not take it literally.

Popular EXCLAMATIONS!:

"For the Love of Ninja!"

"I just brushed my teeth with Nair!!"

"Jesus Christ and Justin Beiber!!!"

To be fair that was 4 years ago. They're a much different company now. Everybody says so...

Most likely the latter. The twitter status update design by the same artist is on that page as well.

Link leads to a 2010 page where he lists designs available for purchase as Shirt designs. One can assume he never sold them.

Astute observers will note I got your Tweet Right Here from 4/11 lower down.

True Forum dwellers will note that the EYES have been changed, and I wouldn't be at all surprised to learn that the publishing user was the same one mentioned that this style of eye sells better in the Derby Thread from mid January IIRC.

EDIT: Would figure I can't find it now. Same thread with the color coded Graphic of Pop Culture allowed in Derby.

Does anyone else find it kind of funny that the people who are saying negative things about this shirt are fitting themselves into the description of the shirt? Hehe maybe they didn't read the write-up? Combined with the creative description, this shirt is hilarious and deserves some respect!

Quote from the film Harvey:

"Years ago my mother used to say to me... 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant."



Well said, and I love the quote, and the movie!

What's that powder clinging to your credit card? Oh wait, this is capitalism.

I can't get over the fact that everyone has such adamant opinions about a shirt that says "your opinions suck". The irony is amazing.
