Propaganda Derby

The newest Derby has been strange, to say the least. The theme is Propaganda For Everyday Life, which is weird enough to be the only reason, but this is also the first Derby to use the new Fog of War format. In an attempt to deter cheating the system, the fog has now been extended from four designs to nine. The last notable strangeness though is that my design has stirred up a little controversy. I really wanted to drive home a Russian style, so I made some of the letters of my slogan look like Cyrillic characters. A lot of people think this contradicts the overall message because it doesn't make sense if pronounced. I can see where they're coming from, but I just look at it like it's a font. That's all.

Anyway, if you are a fan of proper grammar and spelling on the internet, and you're not offended by my font, please check out Use Proper Grammar at Shirt.Woot.

I just ordered one of these. It's a grand design.

Congratulations on the print! I voted for this, and I'm glad I got to buy it as well. Nothing irks me more than bad grammar or spelling.

I REALLY want to buy this shirt for my husband, but I'm afraid of ordering the wrong size! Can you help? Do you know what brand t-shirt it is printed on? He's always either a medium or a large, but not if the large is too large, or if the medium is too small... Any suggestions?

I sometimes (OK, often) forget to check the daily woot shirt. I'm glad I checked Google Reader today and saw this shirt. Awesome. Simply awesome.

So... I'm too late to get it from Woot. Is there another site where I can purchase?

theinfinityloop said...

You're not too late, Jennifer. It's still selling, but for $15, and temporarily. Here's the link.

I SO want one of these but I missed it. Any idea where I might be able to pick one up? I even checked ebay!
=(

I second the desire for this shirt. I missed it, hoped it would come up in the Reckoning, but it never did. I really, really, really, really want one.

Ditto on the last two. Any chance you'll be recycling this? I didn't have the funds to buy it while it was at shirt.woot.
