While we weren't paying enough attention to Jason's wandering mind, he proposed the following contest: Show us a former Woot product's Facebook page (or a detail from their home page, or some other page from their account). We immediately asked ourselves: why a former Woot product? Why not a Woot product in the current rotation? How do you know if it's a former Woot product? Does it go by the acronym TPFKAAWP? And then we thought maybe we were overthinking the issue. What do you think?

First Place - $100
TomW - Bacon Salt

Well now what do we do, TomW didn't even make a Facebook page, he made a Spicerack page.


Second Place - $50
toby8915 - Roomba

Oh lawd how I don't miss Roomba High.


Third Place - $20
phedhex - AAAHAAHHAAAAAAHAAAAA

I can't stop laughing. This is better than the real thing. Maybe Bo will post something on the wall!

mrwolfe00 - Bacon Salt

She likes long walks on the beach, sea water, and vegetarians named Steve.

So, Bob, you're married to Vince? How's that political conservatism workin' out there, fella?


boredbabe90 - Centon SD
Oh, here's something! I think someone should tell Sansa up above that Centon is totally crushing on her and photoshopping her into his pics. Can you say "restraining order"?

Woo hoo! My first win. Only moments after posting a passive aggressive comment about results in another thread. Whining works!

I would like to thank my cats, and my wife and all of those bastards who never believed in me. How do you like me now? No, don't play the music, I have so much more to say. Get away from me, Jon Stewart!!!!!

Congrats all! I almost forgot what these looked like. Thanks for the HM, judges. I created a facebook account just to enter this contest and now I feel like a veteran. Sad, really.

Woot off and results. WOW. But based upon how long it has taken, I still think they need to pass the results posting duties off to a volunteer.

Congrats to the winners and fellow HM's.

I received a very nice e-mail fromm J. Toon today (How I managed that is a secret I'll take to my grave). For those who complained of the lack communication regarding the contests, let me post here part of his e-mail. I don't think Toon will mind:


Sorry about the delay in posting results. The results for 231 will go up today and 232 tomorrow.

Don't hold him to that... read on:

Please keep in mind that the Photoshop contests are just one small part of what we do. We launched a new Woot site a month ago, we're preparing to launch another one, and we're heading into the holiday shopping season with several Woot-Offs on the schedule. We've been extremely busy.

Thanks -
Jason


I like the sound of 'several Woot-offs on the schedule."

Thanks Jason.

I've been saying for a while that jason is stretched too thin with all the new sites. All the more reason to hand the duties of posting the results to a volunteer moderator.

Not sure why I got the Monkey Prize, but I won't argue with that. Anyone know what MP winners usually get?

Lately? Nothing.

Previously? A stretchable monkey you shoot like a slingshot that makes a horrible screeching sound that drives animals (and myself) nuts.

If you shoot it right, it won't scream until impacting something, which makes it fun to shoot near your wife if she isn't paying attention... On that note, it also makes a snuggly bed time companion when you sleep on the sofa.

Ah, damn. I already have a screaming monkey. I suppose it will be nice to have a back-up.

The coupon code has never worked for me, personally. After purchasing, I've always been able to email service@woot.com with my order number and which contest my coupon came from and they refunded me the $5.

I appear to be melting.
