Ha - yes, it's definitely a mistake. Sorry, I usually look at the numbers closely before posting to make sure that they make sense; I confess, last night I was hoping to shower before getting a phone call, and I didn't even look at them before I posted. Let me go see what I did wrong...
Ah, I entered the wrong date! I'd last posted numbers at 2330 woot time Friday, and it was Saturday, so I added one day to the date (9/28 to 9/29) - but it was 00:10 woot time when I pulled numbers, so it should have been 9/30 by spreadsheet-date. In other words, I told the spreadsheet that Consider Yourself Warned had sold 185 shirts in 40 minutes.
All of the DSRs that I posted last night were inaccurate; I've corrected my original post.

As citizencoyote said, Cheese was by far the highest DSR for a debut shirt. After selling out in about 90 minutes (3000 shirts), it sold nearly 3000 shirts on its second day. I'd be surprised if we see something like that again; it was just a perfect storm of a theme-timing-distribution of the link.
And I do feel warned, Mr. Rex. And scared.
Yup, me too - but I feel warned that I need to be careful to check the numbers! I usually do, but this is what happens when I relax the numbers-quality-control. I apologize again!
