Hey, Hollywood: want a cheap, surefire hit? The kind of movie that
can spawn lucrative straight-to-video sequels until the angel's trumpet
sounds? Bring back the madcap road comedy. You know, like Cannonball Run or Every Which Way But Loose.
Find a hunky but folksy aging male star for the lead (Mr. Swayze, call
your agent). Maybe convince him to grow a mustache. Then surround him
with an eager-to-work ensemble cast: Borscht Belt survivors, wacky
neighbors from failed sitcoms, a couple of buxom airbrushed airheads, a
country singer under the sad delusion that he could be a movie star,
Dom DeLuise. Write a script by drawing random hilarious situations out
of a hat, blow up a couple of Trans Ams, and eureka! You've struck
Until then, we'll have to reenact that
beloved subgenre in our daily lives with the Whistler 1773 Laser &
Radar Detector. It gives us 360-degree protection from X, K, KA, and
SuperWide radar bands, along with laser, SWS
and VG-2. So it's coming along every time we're fleeing down some dirt
road from a corrupt local sheriff, hoping that we don't run into that
biker gang we ticked off, and mediating between the spunky but sexy
hitchhiker in the Daisy Dukes and our pet python in the back seat. In
other words, we'll use the Whistler 1773 Laser & Radar Detector
every day for the rest of our lives.

Second Place finisher in Derby #10, with 686 votes!
While we are constitutionally unable to cheer on their hapless North Side ballclub, we'll grant that Chicago's got a lot of other things going for it. Here we see one of the best skylines on this or any other continent rendered in 8 lifelike bits. Tetradical!
This shirt was designed by: Shirt.Woot member fackoph, who we'll assume is named something like Paul Herman Facko. After all, an esteemed Derby runner-up wouldn't do something cheap like try to slip some phonetic profanity past our censors.
Wear this shirt: anywhere but Chicago, unless you want to look like some bumpkin tourist just off the bus from St. Louis.
Don't wear this shirt: more than a couple of times without washing it, especially if you're going to be squeezed in next to us on the El.
This shirt tells the world: "Rome wasn't built in a day, but I can build Chicago in three minutes."
(1) Woot Cellars Polyphemus Sonoma Red Blend 2005 1.5L
Description: (click show to see it)
CRASH! HOWL! SLURP!
An abomination stalks the land, single of eye and sophisticated of
palate! Cower, puny human, before Polyphemus, a cyclopean monstrosity
lurching forth from the bowels of Sonoma County!
Born of a
profane union between Barbera, Syrah, Sangiovese, and Merlot, this
Magnum-sized, vino-crazed behemoth knows but one desire: to destroy! To
destroy your preconceptions about red blends, and stomp the walls of
your sales resistance into dust! Woot Cellars dared to shackle the
beast, but it would not be tamed!
Run, lest its unholy
aromas of raspberry and spice scald your nostrils! Flee, that you may
escape the heavy tread of its bestial blackberry, black pepper, and
anise flavors! When Polyphemus sticks out his pinky to drink, entire
villages are reduced to ruins! Polyphemus is the third offering from
Woot Cellars...will it be your LAST?
