Dear Woot t-shirt designers and derby voters : There's more to life than Princess Bride, Mario, Star Wars, and Dr. Who references. Maybe try next time to not be so friggin' predictably redundant. Thanks ever so much.

Great shirt!
I typed this post left-handed; it's the only way I can be satisfied. If I use my right...over too quickly.

o_O I've never seen Google translate get Latin right before. I wonder if it was a fluke. (Assuming that inusitata magnitudine is an ablative of characteristic.)

Anyhow, love it! I know what movie I'll be watching tonight.

Impressive print for the humour, details and 1st place position. Not just any designer could fit a rodent of unusual size on a t-shirt and you managed two. Congratulations Tjost.

Well played! Had the same thought. A Princess Bride shirt on any color should be good.

Don't be a Humperdinck, buy this shirt.

The Latin in the write-up made me smile a little. And cry a little. How hard would it have been to add a diminutive to regina? I couldn't figure out what queen had to do with anything. At least the shirt itself is totally verendum.

Tjost pulls off another late entry win! Will it do as well as his first? Time will tell, but I smell immediate success at the least!

Congrats!

Google translates the Latin as "mice used to size"

Great design as usual. I just can't get on board with the "let's just cram any/every reference from a cult movie onto a shirt" trend. It becomes an ISpy™ game of identifying the movie's elements. Sorry - not a fan.

I want to buy this shirt, but the latin on it is wrong.

Mures inusitatae magnitudine would be, literally, mice unusual with respect to their size.

As someone with a degree in Latin, I can't wear this shirt in good conscience.

Can someone help me on T shirt sizes? I have one Woot shirt from the 2011 Monkey games. It's labeled a women's medium but the chest width measurement is 16". It's too small for me to wear, and according to the sizing chart, the women's medium is supposed to be 19". I'm not a big person and usually have no trouble fitting into a medium, even a slim one, but I'm hesitant to order a medium if it's not a full 19" wide.

So what should it be? I have some experience with translating ancient languages, and I find the two phrases (rodents of unusual size/mice unusual with respect to their size) fairly synonymous. Translation is always an approximation, isn't it?

I love the movie, and I did purchase Inconcievable despite the color, but I just can't do another gray shirt. Please, someone give us a Princess Bride shirt on a different color.

LOVE IT! The 'mures inusitata magnitudine' highlighting ROUS's, Rodents of Unusual Size is so funny. Great shirt and great job.

Vizzini: A shirt submitted this late, winning? Oh, that's inconceivable.

Inigo: You know, I don't think you really understand the meaning of the word. It was inconceivable for that other ship to catch up, but it did. It was impossible for this shirt to win the derby, but it did!

Woot has changed t-shirt providers since then, what used to be a women's large or extra large is closer to a women's medium now.

Sorry - but when you consider the audience of woot!, what do you expect? Wooters are a generation of intelligent, twisted, wry, witty, and quirky people who often love The Princess Bride, Monty Python, and the video games with which we grew up (or are still being kids).

It's up to you which side of the shirt is the front, isn't it?

I disagree. Their size is unusual, so inusitata is modifying magnitudine, both abaltive feminine singular. There was some discussion about whether genitive would be more appropriate (i.e. inusitatae magnitudinis).

It was a group effort to get the Latin correct. Google Translate is notoriously horrible with Latin.

You want me to think that you think that I think you think that you're not buying this shirt.

In for one.

Inquiring minds among my group of female friends want to know if a lucky gal (or guy) has snagged such a talented hottie. LOL



Wow, I'm blushing, thanks! Yes I've been happily married to my beautiful wife for 6 years now thanks for the inquiry though

On a side note, I do not speak latin so I had to put the description into google translate and this is what it spit out-

"The title is "Mammalia of Unusal Size" if you can not read Latin. But if you can not read in Latin to read what are you doing this. But there is no Latin? You Numbskull? This shirt is the "Queen of the Bride". Combines several elements together, to humorous effect. That is how Shirt.Woot works, really. Sometimes it is "change Teenage Ninja Turtles", a "Super Mario Brothers". But the reason is the same. Arms and the man I sing. It's one thing I know. I'm not singing at all. Arms are not involved. But man in the "Queen of the bride"! Leslie and Aeneas are similar. Buffeted by the vicissitudes of fortune, too. They are heterosexual."

Thanks again everyone. This shirt almost didn't happen. I had the idea Friday, did a rough Sunday and didn't finish it till the wee hours Monday. Yeah for procrastination!



Google Translate for the win!

Thought I'd pop in to translate the description myself, because Latin is fun and because I am not a robot. Ahem.

"The title is "Rodents of Unusual Size" if it is not possible for you to read Latin. But if you can't read Latin, how are you reading this? Don't you (all) know Latin? Cretins!

This shirt is from "Princess Bride". It combines many elements together for humorous effect. Because that's how Shirt.Woot works, truthfully. Sometimes it is "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles", sometimes "Super Mario Brothers". But it is always the same reason.

Of arms and a man I sing. That is one thing I know of Latin. I am not singing inside. Nor are arms involved. But there is a man in "The Princess Bride"! Leslie and Aeneas are similar. They are beaten by different fortunes as well. They are heterosexual."

Well... interesting. Also, neither "cretins" nor "I'm" are Latin. And "heterosexual" has Greek roots. But I'm just being particular about my dead languages. I do like the shirt.
