I find the "dream vision" the t-rex has of himself more than just a little creepy. Something about the long, muscled arms is both funny and incredibly off-putting at the same time.

I've found myself in a similar predicament a time or two. If I could just... reach... a little... further...

Fantastic!

It just occurred to me to wonder what the genie inside that lamp looks like.

A t-rex genie would have a similar problem where he couldn't hover around with tiny arms crossed to look imposing...

Too bad he got on everybody's bad side by eating people, otherwise they might have helped him. Karma.

T-rex wants tickets to the guns show. There. Someone had to say it.

I'm with bluejester though, the muscle arms figure both amuses and creeps me out. I might have bought the bubbleless but oh well, this one had more votes.

I like the thought bubble. I feel like it will save me a lot of time explaining to people what a T-rex would want with a magic lamp.

I am thinking of buying this and taking some sandpaper to it to erase both the thought bubble and the lamp. I like the idea of the solitary figure of a T-Rex with that slightly-demented grin and in that preposterous position, with no other symbols or figures there to impose a jokey explanation on what's otherwise a perfectly lovely, perfectly absurd rendering.

I would have bought it in a second without the thought bubble. Who knows what he's wishing for, it's a mystery.

Have you done the sandpaper trick before? does it work well?

All he needs to do is bend at the knees, tilt his head up, and reach down with his claws. It's all in the technique. Silly dinosaur.

Please offer the bubble-less version. The design does not need or benefit from that stupid "thought"
Did the designer really add that?

...dang it, I assumed it'd be a cinch but then I went and tried out the technique on an old Woot shirt that's seen better days and ...no. The ink isn't just on the surface, it penetrates down into the fibers. However, it is surprisingly easy to sand a hole into one's t-shirt, if that's something you ever want to attempt.

No dino tee for me today

Dear woot writers,

At some point between when I snorted (the first time) and when I fell out of my chair with laughter, my dogs woke up and started howling. I confess it is possible that the soundtrack to your lovely video, rather than my snorting or uncontrollable giggling, caused the howling, but now I have to coax them back to sleep while controlling deep belly-laughs when that orchestral masterpiece begins to replay in my head.

Love, neuro

Dear PixelPants,

If I laughed out loud at the predicament in which the poor t-rex finds himself, does that make me insensitive to the experiences of short-armed extinct cartoon characters? Should I refer myself for diversity training? Also, how in the world do you consistently print such humorous and clever designs?

Love, neuro

I was a little worried no one would say anything about the write-up. I was half-hoping the Sizing Chart link was going to be deceptive, even if that would be impossible with the site format. I'm curious to see what kind of traffic watches the video just because of this Woot!. Let's check numbers tomorrow night.

You know, t-rexes wouldn't get nearly so much love if they didn't have such pitiful little arms. Be careful what you wish for, Rexy!

I absolutely love this shirt. It is perfect for my brother who lifts and claims that the TRex is his favorite animal. Plus it suits his sense of humor. I'm really excited to see this print! Congrats PixelPants

forever fighting the urge to buy something just because it is cheap and cool...wait, it's cheap and cool, let me click that big yellow button!

Something tells me right now this poor dino is thinking " I'm just not so sure how well this plan was thought through."

Absolutely in love with this shirt! So glad it won!

I wasn't paying attention and JUST missed voting...too bad, because I liked the one without the thought bubble better.

T-Rex.

Put your legs a little further back. Now, lower yourself, reverse push-up style.

You can do it, man.

Those guns will be yours.

I'm still not sure how he made his first two wishes...I'm guessing he started out as a little boy who wished to be big. Then wished to be a t-rex.

Either way, I adore this.

Edit to add: so Rick-rolling has been replaced by this?

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

This is what happened to me as well. I forgot to check the derby for the week, saw the one without the bubble and thought that would be awesome and then saw the one with the thought bubble. I realized that I enjoy shirts that require a second or two of thought, or leaving a little open to interpretation. Guess I'll be checking those derbies more often.

If a real t-rex wanted something, it would pick it up with its mouth. They thrived on the earth for a long time, they weren't helpless.

there was a bubbless version? Dammit. Count me in the throng wishing that I'd come back after intially voting.

The T-Rex is so beautifully drawn, though. I've really gotta mull this one over.

Fantastic choice again voters, can't remember the last time I thought that 2 weeks in a row.

Muscleman pose wish T-Rex is a riot and is what pushes this design from OK to hilarious.

I agree - the muscly arms show you that he is thinking, "Taa Daa! Now I'm Superdino." like T-Rex always wanted to be.
