Okay, not what I would have chosen (see this thread here for that) but I can dig it. Congrats, Robbie!

I must say this is the COOLEST shirt/hoodie design ever, because of a flippin ninja... but the hoodie is 50% cotton and 50% polyester?
I was about to buy it until I saw that. I'll just keep wearing my comfy 95% cotton 5% polyester AE hoodie. I prefer the softer higher cotton blend.

Ah, the indefatigable Robbie Lee has crept up and snagged tee shirt of the year. Well done Robbie, well done.

So what makes this Shirt of the Year? Sales? Votes? Staff bribes?

Really? This one wouldn't even have been on my Top 20 list. It's cute, and the graphics are well done, and it's funny, but... ?????

tons o' screaming monkeys (yay!)
almost no Box of Cobwebs in the past few years (boo :-< )

I really like the hoodies. The 50/50 blend makes them feel fleecy on the inside. They also hold up really well to washing. My Nevermoore hoodie has been washed probably close to 50 times (the dog looks at it and it's covered in dog hair!) and it looks great, still feels fleecy.

This is the first time that crewneck sweatshirts have been offered, and the first time that woot has allowed a choice in the color of the t-shirt blank. Shades of things to come?!?

How did this end up shirt of the year? It's got nothing on the Unstealthiest Ninja series - and that's just out of the "ninja" genre!

I have the green version of this shirt, and it's such a cool concept - but beware, fat bottom girls, that the ninja sits low on the back of the shirt, and the junk in your trunk will ruin the effect of the secret ninja climbing up your back because either his legs will be all scrunched up over the top of your butt, or stretched out over the lovely lady lumps. I suppose this would go for curvy dudes, as well. SO even though this ninja is awesome, my butt prevents me from showing it off.

Thanks, everyone! Thanks Woot!

Lots of great shirts this year. Troubled Waters, Hold Still Guys, Trivial Matters, a ton more... It's truly an honor to have my tiny ninja picked.

Would it help to direct you to the fact that this little guy is printed on the BACK?

Yeah. The ninja is riding on your back, sneakily awaiting the perfect time to attack you. And telling anyone who sees him to SSHHHH!! And not tell you he's there.

I was a bit worried about that with a t-shirt, but I'm thinking a hoodie would be okay, since they're worn loose. Thanks for the head's up!

I agree whole-heartedly. My hoodies have been washed, dried and beat up a lot - they have held up very well and are still very soft.

I think every one in the family has this shirt. Looks like we will be adding to our shirt/tote/hoodie collection.

That's O'neill with two L's *holds up three fingers*

Yeah I noticed that. I guess I just don't think it's "SHIRT OF THE YEAR One More Friday Gone SWEET AWESOMENESS" it's just a typical neat shirt.woot shirt. To each his own I guess.

My kids LOVED this shirt so much (and received so many compliments) that I just had to buy 2 more! :o)

Big congratulations Robbie! As usual this one snuck up on me, even though I have already picked up two. What makes it work is the fact that the joke stays fresh every time you see it.

Friggin great!
a 3-day sale on the "best shirt of 2012" while the rest of the list gets a full week?

Guess I'll just wait until next time.

I got the crewneck sweatshirt today! One More Friday Gone, they weren't kidding when they said it's just a hoodie without the hood and pouch.

They fit exactly the same ! Very warm, soft, and the neck hole on the 2x is just right.

Thank you woot for bringing another product that I can safely buy. My wallet hates you though!

that was fun while it lasted!
