    I’m old enough to know this word, though I’ve never used it myself, but I had to ‘google it’ for a definition that made sense. Here is what I found via various sites which I prefer not to mention:

    1. woot
    Woot originated as a hacker term for root (or administrative) access to a computer. However, with the term as coincides with the gamer term, “w00t”.
    w00t” was originally a truncated expression common among players of Dungeons and Dragons tabletop role-playing game for “Wow, loot!” Thus the term passed into the net-culture, where it thrived in video game communities (such as Online Multiplayer RPGS) and lost its original meaning, and is used simply as a term of excitement.
    - “I defeated the dark sorcerer! Woot!”
    - “woot! i r teh flagmastar!” (Think Tribes)
    - “Woot, I pwnzed this dude’s boxen!”

    So, by definition, that t_shirt is totally w00t. Egad, I’ve used that word in its proper context! I’ve wonder if that’s ever happened before?
