Mmmmmm Bacon. Woot! sell Bacon, I Buy Bacon.
How about "Crap for the Troops" overseas? Better than sponsoring even that bunch of fun-loving Shmooos. Imagine the videos you'd get back, too ;)

Since we've sold it before on the site, I don't know.

If you're annoyed, you shouldn't be.
The stuff flying about early in the video is a standard Shmoocon thing. They hand out foam balls (called ShmooBalls) that you're encouraged to throw at a speaker if you think they're full of it. One of the fun events of the conference is the folks trying to engineer automatic weapon grade ShmooBall launchers. Compressed air, leafblowers, etc.. At the end of the Con Bruce Potter gets pelted with lots of balls.
As far as the Woot! stuff, the BOCs were very gratefully received. (There were some truly cr*ppy prizes after the Woot! stuff.)
The "I came all this way and all I got was a bag of cr*p" comment is tongue in cheek. I thought it was pretty funny, myself.
Please, Woot. Do this again!
Woot! Now 100+ woots for me!
That's 87 woots (Including Twelve Bats On Crack!), 12 Sellout.woots, 8 wine.woots and 4 kids.woots, and finally, 2 shirt.woots!

greatest video ever. combining 3 of my favorite things- woot, hacker cons, and nerd core (dualcore/int80 ftw).
next time sponsor notacon though, there are less balls flying at your face and it's the con that hugs you (whether you want it to or not)
