oh jeez, that's depressing- as if this whole damn holiday thing wasn't depressing enough- a despondent polar bear trapped on a tiny ice floe! twist the knife a little MORE, why don't you! And it's on white, a color which makes me look more dead! it's the t-shirt equivalent of "Love Will Tear Us Apart"!

What's more depressing:
a: the shirt
b: the vote count
?

I have a shirt catalog, y'all!

Jeebus, part of me loves the shirt but I don't want one that makes me cry every time I pull it outta the hamper...

I thought I'd be the only one to feel this way. It's really lovely, but man, I'm tearing up just typing this.

What a poignant image; the grief and sadness etched on the polar bear's face is painful to see. I'm torn between feeling like I'm intruding and should look away, and wanting to give him a hug.

Polar bears love to swim in ice cold water. He is not sad at all. Probably just tired.

Oh my... This IS the most depressing /powerful image I think I've ever seen on Woot. I think I'm going to need to go visit forgetfulness land just to get through the rest of the day.

So, Al Gore goes from creating the internet to designing shirts for Woot.

He should move to Antarctica, there's an increasing amount of ice every year and plenty of penguins to eat!

Very recent sampling of polar bear populations actually shows thier numbers have been steadily rising over the last 20 years. This is propaganda nonsense for the tree hugger crowd.

What ever happened to Coca-Cola fixing this problem? I drink twelve cans a day and I haven't heard anything about Coke airdropping care packages of ice cubes and seal steaks!

Now matter how sad it looks, you don't want to hug a polar bear. You're made of meat and easily torn into bite-size chunks.

The bear is sad because he heard how much money Al Gore makes off of him but doesn't share.


"The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service estimates that the polar bear population is currently at 20,000 to 25,000 bears, up from as low as 5,000-10,000 bears in the 1950s and 1960s. A 2002 U.S. Geological Survey of wildlife in the Arctic Refuge Coastal Plain noted that the polar bear populations 'may now be near historic highs,'"

One of the most insipid shirts ever. The Church of Global Warming doesn't need any more advertising, they are already far enough on their plan to sending us back to the stone age. I thought woot stayed away from politics?

I listened to a seminar on this and polar bears are not increasing. They are simply populating a more limited area, so they are easier to count. The ice is retreating and they have less room to spread.

It was a derby. Woot didn't pick this, woot users did. And yes, global warming does need more advertising, there are too many people still denying it's existence.

It's sad because it's crap. Polar bear populations are growing, if anything.

Go ahead, give the poor little guy a big hug. You're both nutritious and delicious.

Polar bears are only an endangered species in the USA. You can hunt them outside the USA too. They can swim long distances. And then how about this scientific fraud:

I truly hope that these numbers and the article is correct. Anybody can write an article, food for thought.

Please do as much research on the actual numbers as you possibly can and draw your own conclusions. The biggest mistake any of us can make is to allow others to do our thinking for us.

What makes this lil dude sad is that there are actually people who think polar bears can't swim. Lil dude wants you to know that polar bears can swim a hundred miles at a stretch. Know this, and lil dude will be happy again.

Since I can't be a world class expert on absolutely everything I tend to mostly trust the people who actually study this stuff for a living. Climatologists and polar bear scientists overwhelmingly agree that the receding arctic ice is a real problem for happy bears, Fox News disagrees.

The write ups have been a bit depressing lately. Sounds like some one could use some prozac. Just sayin. Has anyone considered that a depressing spin can lose some sales revenue?
Then the lack of energy in the voting has been very sad lately. I bet since they changed the voting format, ppl have stopping putting as much effort into voting and getting the word out for support. I mean, think about it, I can vote for multiple shirts, but really only one of my votes could really mean anything. Aside from first place, the other two prints are just a ca-rap shoot. Why vote if your vote doesn't hardly count?

Srsly, will someone give patrickspens a hug or a cookie or something? His art is gorgeous, but the stories his shirts tell are really NOT okay.

I would've totally bought this if y'all donated some of the profits to some environmental/animal rights group.
Otherwise, the consumerism just makes me sad
