I think it's pretty funny, I don't know if he intended it to be though. :P

I like all your entries this week Kharma, you're a very creative guy!

@wendooku:
Thanks! I wouldn't mind it too much. Plenty of other awesome designs to choose from.

I'd considered putting in rainbows, seeing as how Tesla invented them

@Spiritgreen
Sweet! I'd love to play it!
What did you develop it in?

HOWEVER, if you are making some comparison between Obama and monkeys, that's all you. I am so god d*amn sick of this political correct BS. This is a joke, playing off a political slogan and evolution. And the joke would still be funny if it were a white guy who had the "change" slogan. Screw your political correctness. But screw Ramy for more rule-pushing crap.



I understand what your saying about the PCness of it all and I agree people are overly sensitive these days BUT this is an election year where Obama and that campaign slogan are everywhere. The timing is bad for this design. Keep in mind that there is a long history in this country of white people comparing black people to apes and monkeys. So putting apes on Obama's campaign slogan can and will be misunderstood by many people. This is why it is highly offensive. No one will look at this design as evolution humor. I doubt Ramyb meant it that way however I would not risk offending people by wearing that shirt.

People misunderstanding something does not make it offensive.

Other than using a campaign slogan, there is absolutely nothing about the shirt which implies that Obama is a monkey. (note that the outlined person is both white in the original image and not anything resembling a caricature of Obama)

That being said, the utter lack of creativity on this image would make it a shame if it prints. At best, Ramyb is too liberally sampling from other works (can't even be bothered to change the font on the slogan?), and at worst, he is flat out plagiarizing other works.

This very aptly sums up the recent kerfuffles in the derbies.

It's an homage to the Rosie the Riveter propoganda poster, but that was the only intended reference.

Don't tell me there was a robotic armed dinosaur played by Neil Patrick Harris. There'd better not have been.

I understand where you're coming from. I believe the timing is off on this hacked design. I would not want to wear a shirt that people might misunderstand and while I'm trying to explain the woot derby, WWII propaganda and evolution, I'm getting my arse kicked.

Do it for SCIENCE is a collaboration between intunepiccolo and the dashingly geeky ZevEisenberg.

This is our first Derby. If you have time to give feedback for us new kids, we'd love your critiques! You can be as scathing as you'd like.


  • Is there an element you particularly like, or would change?
  • Should we do customized comp images like the pros?
  • Did you know that you can fake a mushroom sauce using peas instead?
  • Dang, there are a lot of pretty propaganda posters out there.


If you don't feel like saying anything, that's cool too. I'm just a lurker, myself.

Science!

Re: Team Tesla



I really, really hope this prints. My husband is a huge Tesla fan and is constantly going on about how great he was and all the stuff he did that he didn't get credit for. I would love to be able to buy this for him for Christmas.

Re: Resist Capacity Induction Power


I like that the slogan can be read in a full circle, with Power making sense at both the beginning and the end. It's also nice to see designs breaking from the rectangular-poster mold.

I've been shilling this contest to my fellow EEs. I'd love to wear this shirt!

Heh! Thanks for the compliment! They do make display frames specifically for hanging t-shirts. I bet that woot could make a bundle selling them as an accessory.
