I was hoping the Editors would split the vote and we'd get a 2-for-$12 deal.

Woot is addicting. I told myself I would stop buying shirts after the Princess Bride crest and then THIS shirt pops up. Ugh

I swear this is the last one

What a sad shirt. Like a puppy, the ring just wanted to be with an owner who loved it. The ring didn't curse others; the ring was cursed itself because it couldn't truly choose its master. It chose Smeagol, Bilbo and Frodo whose natures were all (originally) naive and kind. I believe it was Sauron's profane influence through his link with the--

oh, wait, sorry. Got a little carried away there. Great shirt, but I'd feel bad every time I wore it.

It could just be because I'm tired, but I'm almost seeing math equations in the ring's script.

Even if he is holding the book upside down, it's still an epic shirt.

Okay...perhaps that was too much of a groaner.

The secret has been revealed: the elves have been behind those horrid calculus equations all along.

Never mind the orientation of the book! How accurate is the script on the ring? This is of utmost importance for nerd cred!!!

I don't think the script is right. This looks more like normal elven script (Tengwar) than the stylized version on the actual ring. But maybe there would be copyright issues there.

Yeah, in the derby the artist specifically said he didn't copy the script exactly because of that. Still cool though.

Thaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaank you Woot!!! I feel really honored to be the first Editor's Choice with the new derby Rules, specially cause there were many awesome designs!! This was rejected some weeks ago, but now it's a real tee!! I hope many people enjoy wearing it when The Hobbit first film comes!:D:D

The script is not accurate cause there would be copyright problems, as you pointed out

Thank you all!

Congrats wirdou! This is a great pick, I don't think we've ever considered LotR from the ring's point of view before. :D

So, no gold ink on this?

Thank you Spirit!:D I didn't use gold ink, as it was just an option. It was a personal choice, as I'm not a huge fan of metal inks ;)

He's just holding it European-style. Note the origin of the artist.

If you look at LOTR from the point of view of the Ring, it's a very sad story.

The Ring has such limited powers and tries so hard and waits so long and almost succeeds and ends up melted in lava. All its beautiful wickedness!

I always find the sales map interesting, and sometimes downright humerous! And I love the commentaries. Particularily good one this time! Love the shirt, of course, but with the commentary, it's that much better!

For the longest time, I thought the ring's mouth was its nose. It made no sense until the Ah Ha moment.

ONly if the book is published in the US or UK. Books published in France (and perhaps other countries too?) have words going up the binding instead of down.

I used to be able to read and write in Tengwar script. I've forgotten it all now, and would have to go look it up to find out whether the designer was actually SAYING something here. (Or I suppose we could just ask the designer?)

Me too! It looked like he was happily reading the book, which is kind of funny in its own way, but makes a lot more sense now that I can see it correctly.

Is he reading the part where Gollum is the possessive, bad boyfriend?

A few months ago I did a quick check and discovered I had bought over 50 Woot shirts - some as gifts, but most for myself. I told myself the same thing - stop buying Woot shirts. Four shirts later, I am still telling myself "slow down"...

Except the spine of the book the ring is reading is going the opposite direction of the books in the stack.

As far as I'm concerned, the nerd cred was lost when he wasn't reading The Silmarillion.
