Starting this week, we’re doing the Derby a little different. You can learn all about it on our blog, which is a thing on the Internet.

Speaking of things on the Internet, that’s our theme! So give us your selfies, your porn, your tired memes yearning to just die already. The wretched refuse of your comment section trolls. Send these, the grammarless, Facebook shamed to us. And lift your cursor over the golden (it's actually blue) submit button.

  • no crëme tees
  • no mercy
  • no porn

...your porn...?

Really?

Oh...my.

I suspect this will be a week of much rejectioning, since so many people read just part of the rules.

Get ready for grumpy cat in TARDIS. NEKKID!!!!

I pledge allegiance to Reddit the Front Page of the Internet and to the content for which it shares, many nations, all divisible, with kitties and memebase for all.

(This derby has my brain doing things like this, thanks woot.)

I hope I'm reading this wrong. It sounds like you want t-shirts ABOUT (That's for adults, not children.) without any nudez on it??? If that's not what you're looking for, I suggest you clarify.

And troll poo.

Don't forget the troll poo.

Judging by these comments, this will be a pretty hilarious derby. It's unfortunate I can't make use of my favorite meme, Breadfriend.

Nice! Thanks. I think this officially qualifies as a "tired old meme."

YAY FISHBITKITTIES!

Does it make sense? Title: 'My mother knows everything'.

if you're imitating the google logo, i think their drop shadow is not nearly as prominent and their "yellow" is more orange-tinted than yours. the other colours may be a leetle off as well.

No, no, no!
I decided to do a catshirt because I couldn't imagine how anyone could do that with the Internet theme... and now I have ideas. How many catshirts do you predict we'll enter?

So this is the final result. Thanks no1 for the advices! I've done some color changes and I think it's better now.




no1, I am so impressed with your avatar xD I am from Spain and I thought that 'picture' and the story behind it didn't pass my country xDD

here's mine. I figured there would be plenty of cats, and what with my affiliation with fish...


I'm not sure I need the text. Thoughts appreciated!

Maybe instead of a person's name you could try something like people say I'm stunning or adorable or cute. I think the name will turn off some voters, but a funny adjective could do the trick.

Thanks for the feedback! I was concerned about that myself. How's "People say I look like a model"?

I didn't get "Google" from this. Maybe show "My Mum" reflected, but the reflection or the shadow is "Google."

Only people who have seen "I can haz cheeseburger" and the Rings saga will get this.
If I hadn't read your note about the mashup, I might not have figured out the "Precious" part.
Maybe a ring in the picture will help? A cat that looks more like Gollum?

I'm not getting Internet from this.
I can see how some people might see this as a bit offensive... suggesting that women who cover their heads look like potatoes, i.e., not good-looking. (Is that the idea?)
On the other hand, the head covering is supposed to reduce women's appeal. So maybe not offensive.

It's a great idea but I'm afraid "Google" is under copyright... So I can't use it. Thanks anyway

The text makes this more than a fish on the Internet.
Maybe "people say i'm adorkable"
Is that a shark or a catfish? Shark would be more meaningful, i.e., a mean fish (sorry, shark-lovers) looking for prey.
That assumes, of course, that T-shirt viewers understand "adorable" + "dork."

I'm not getting bread + cats = Internet ideas. Text like "Don't bread on me" is closer to the previous theme, Americana.

I missed the title. This is one of those cases in which the title makes the T-shirt make more sense, and perhaps should be included in the design.
As in "Google knows everything, like my mum does."
I didn't get that idea from the design, only from title plus design.

dang. I guess the joke isn't clear. This is a catfish catfishing (pretending to be someone they're not on the internet). Anyway, here it is with different text.


So "brad pitt" or "model"?
Thanks for the feedback, btw!
