For the uninitiated, here's the deal: The Double-Take Derby is out opportunity to give some shirts a second chance. We pick our favorite also-rans from previous Derbies, throw 'em in a pot together regardless of subject matter, and let you pick three more from the bunch. 

"But Shirt.Woot," you may say, "Aren't these designs going to be less popular simply because they didn't place in the top three the first time?" Au contraire! These Derbies are consistently among our most popular, which just goes to show ... something ... about human nature. We're still figuring that part out.

I demand Spiritgreen's head- I just spent five minutes thinking up brilliant horse shirt ideas... what a waste.

What is a double-take ?
Is it a second derby on the last theme ?

Its when they put up all the Honorable Mentions from each week since the last Double Take Derby for voting. In this case its been something like 12 weeks. No new designs this week.

I'd be surprised if the metallic ink derby made it into this double take.... the last one before never seems to make it in.

I actually wonder... if they DO include the metallic HM's in this derby and one wins - will they print it in metallic ink? And how 'bout the food HM's -- will those get aprons too?

Does double-take mean I'm going to double-double-vote for everything this time?

On a more serious note, someone asked me why I bother voting if I dislike the shirt (blanks) so much that I won't buy them. It's the art, I love seeing all the artists and their varied takes on a given subject. Besides, there's always a chance they get printed on shirts I like and other non-shirt products.

Metallic ink is a maybe, but based on previous derbies with 2 formats going in to double takes, no. It will be just the shirt.

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

Ha! If you're referring to the Sausage King, you're going to need to gather up all your wooting friends to make that happen as I'm currently at least 30 votes shy of the "fog of war". Still, fingers crossed. Thanks for the support. And if you're not referring to the Sausage King, well, then.. ignore this comment.

Perhaps there is no derby. Perhaps we've all been replaced.
