What's the deal with all these stupid monkeys all the time? Whence comes Woot's primate pedigree? And when's the new Monkey Prize wine coming out? It's all explained in this highly factual video!

I was certain that Ronald Reagan and the famous movie, Bedtime for Bonzo would have had something to do with the monkey influence.
Oh well, I guess it's bedtime.

Ya think? Maybe because they've said exactly that in two videos now... Derp!

I missed the 1st monkey wine. How much did that stuff cost? Was it cheap...uh, Im mean..."affordable"?

Welcome! If you have questions about what this site is all about, check out the FAQ page. I found it to be helpful when I first became acquainted with woot.

I got a monkey prize in the PS contest and actually received it, albeit several months after winning the award. That monkey still hangs from my monitor as a testament to my shame.

And here I thought it was because you read all of the Wizard of Oz books and knew that Woot was a boy who was turned into a green monkey in the 1918 book The Tin Woodman of Oz. Since I know you probably won't read it, here is the wikipedia article about it:

Yeah I have too much time on my hands.

We've also got connections with an African god.

Hi, I'm one of the writers. My powers are limited but I'll do what I can.

I just finished watching the video and I must admit I miss my screaming woot monkey. It just got so irritating, I slung mine over the fence so the neighbor's dogs could destroy it. I never saw it again.
So....in regret, I'm hoping on April first, you will unleash more woot screaming monkeys so I can fill the void.

I was not here then, back in the before when monkeys were not uniform and were largely silent. I have seen many of the newer screamers and am pleased. But I will not rest, nor leave, nor stand idly by should Woot! decide to de-primate itself, until we get Zombie Monkeys. That is the pinnacle, the ultimate monkey. And of all the monkeysources in all the intarwebs of all this sad world, only Woot! could bring us this epitome of class, taste, and blood and brain dripping elegance.

I await.

Look upon my Avatar, ye whiny, and despair!

sounds like the perfect idea for the long overdue marriage of Woot and Archie McPhee, the orginal home of bags of crap (the surprise box)

I remember KT got a shell one, but must of us didn't. You also made a small amount of $$$$.

It is so sad you are the only one who came to gripe about the missing monkey. I guess the rest finally gave up.

Yes, KT got a seashell monkey and hated it!

WE LURV YOU TOO! Dork!!!

I also never received my monkey prize for contest 194 in October 2008!! I made a Gizmo of gizmos, and was deemed crappy enough for the special prize.
