My 5.9lb Bags Of Our Crap:




I also got one other item:




Which I'm guessing was used by either Jason Toon or AgingDragQueen in this video for the Squirt Gun Marksmanship Ultimate Challenge!




Which inspired this lousy video:




My 8 year old proclaims this to be the best Bunch of Clipping ever!




Thanks Woot!

Yeah, but the one you sent didn't survive the long, slow shipping via SmartPost so I replaced it with my own dog.

That is Leila doing the pet photobomb especially for ThunderThighs. Hope she isn't disappointed that Leila is looking at the camera instead of showing her butt to the camera.

Leila is adorable and looks like quite the little lady. Dogs need to represent more in this thread.

1 really pretty scarf
1 bright pink womens shorts
1 size 12 kids pirate ship/map shirt
1 very nice pair of womens Oakley sunglasses
1 awesome wall mount for flat-screen TV (I think mine will fit? Maybe..)

And courtesy of ThunderThighs:
Item: Christmas Thing
How long: 15+yrs?
Why: Why not?
Any words: I believe in Santa.

I think my mom will totally love the Christmas Scene/Display/Thing. Thanks ThunderThighs and woot!

My Bunch of Clipping had 1 Crab Bag, 1 Kids Shirt, a set of pearl necklace, bracelet and earrings (I assume fake), 1 pair of inexpensive sunglasses, 1 Timex watch (working), a bluetooth speaker (haven't tested, no box or usb charger, and a rubber mask. And finally from ThunderThighs, 5 rolls of dog poopy bags with a note letting me know her crap don't stink.






On the negative side, shipping weight was listed at 10.9 lbs and it weighed more like 3 and box clearly looked opened and re-taped. This hasn't happened since "Random Crap" was removed from the shipping labels. Maybe its time for the item number to be changed on the shipping label? Either way it was fun and my dog will put those bags to "good" use.

Washington state reporting in, late as usual. I got my crap today. The box seemed quite a bit larger than the tracking info reported although the weight seemed about right.

The first thing I did after opening it was ruffle past everything looking for a piece of paper from some woot employee, but I had none. I was sad....

...but then I went through what I DID get and I gotta say, one of my best hauls in a long time! Thanks woot! Heres what I got and a pic:

  • One standard generic black duffel bag (not pictured)
  • "A Wise Investment?" kids size 10 shirt
  • Chic Shadows Fancy Flocking Grommet Panel (my new favorite string of words)
  • Some large blue pillow case
  • 2 rolls packing tape
  • 1 roll Uline yellow vinyl tape
  • 2 pairs Little Hotties hand warmers
  • Nike Vintage '81 sunglasses (new, sold for $44.99 on woot a couple months back)
  • Roku 2 XD with bonus remote (RMA'd, but everything works fine and the original customer's logins were still stored on it (!!). Don't worry, I already did a factory reset after watching a little "Saturday Morning Cartoons from the 80s" which is apparently their favorite Netflix category lol)


Thanks again, woot.

Sorry for the late posting, I just got back from a work trip, we're preparing a sounding rocket for launch (yes, I _am_ a rocket scientist ).

Both my wife and I managed to snag a Bleeped Out Censorship, so we were pretty darn lucky. Unfortunately, while I was away on travel, my wife needed some boxes and, for some reason, decided she wanted the Woot! boxes... so she opened both of them (unceremoniously!) and now I have no way of knowing what item was in what box, and am denied the pleasure of the discovery! Also, no staff letter was apparently included... sad face.

On the other hand, this was one of the best Batches of Cummerbunds that we've ever received. To wit:



2x crab bags (not shown)
1x fake plastic lemon
1x roll of packing tape
1x 8-pack of colored pencils
1x spiral-bound notebook
1x Zombie Motel T-shirt, size 10 kid's
1x Speakman AnyStream showerhead
1x Moto DECT 6.0 cordless phones (apparently new)
1x Toddler cutlery set
1x Dr. Seuss giant floor puzzle 3-pack
1x MadCatz PS3 wireless gamepad
1x pearl/silver ring
1x Freestyle touchscreen watch
... and ...
1x ThunderThighs custom Woot! playing cards

(1x laser-eyed cat not included)

I have to say that it seems like someone at Woot! HQ must know exactly what we need... our son just turned 3 years old last week, and the floor puzzles will make an excellent gift from Woot. He will also receive the T-shirt, which I find totally adorable. The Toddler cutlery will come in handy for our 4-month-old, at some point soon, and the gamepad will be useful for everyone since we have a PS3 and not enough controllers.

Of course, the ultra-rare ThunderThighs playing cards are a wonderful memento and may be the best thing in the box.

(I don't yet know what we'll do with the watch and ring, but they have pretty impressive retail values for something included in a Brigade of Chipmunks... I have to say, I might find the watch's box even cooler than the watch itself.)

This haul is definitely awesome. It's certainly helped to brighten our days after dealing with the flooding here in Colorado... we had a few inches of water in the (previously finished, now gutted) basement, which is pretty minor in the grand scheme but nevertheless carries a very hefty price tag to fix, not to mention the loss of some personal effects (not really anything too important, except for a few hundred Magic: The Gathering cards I'd had for a while... yes, I admit, I once played Magic). We were much less impacted than many others around here, some of whom lost their homes completely, so overall we count ourselves very lucky... but it's still hard when it hits one's own home. These Brain-eating Otter Colonies brought some much-needed smiles to our faces.

Thanks immensely, Woot! (And ThunderThighs in particular, for those awesome cards!)

1 Roll of Tape (handy 'cause I'm moving soon!)
1 Woot! Shirt for Kiddos
1 Really nice set of black curtains
1 Polaroid Tablet PC (eBay'ed)
1 Inflatable Evil Unicorn Horn for Cats - It ended up on a little raven mascot in the newsroom, but only for a little while, because really? It looks like a plug.

That's funny, this is exactly the same "personal crap" that I received. Exactly. I guess you and I must have received the personal crap from the twins who also didn't include a inventory slip.

I cannot figure out the formatting to save me, here is a link to the photos as the email requested this am.

Mine actually showed up a week ago but I haven't had a chance to post. Also, my kids made off with most of the stuff before I could get a picture.

I received:
1x crab bag
1x Toddler cutlery set
2x rolls of packing tape
4x bottles of classroom glue
2x pair of children's scissors
1x slightly used school folder
1x empty metal tin (previously containing some kind of nut assortment)
1x child's tshirt
1x set of fabric markers

Not the best haul ever, but the kids can use the art supplies, cutlery, and shirt, so....win?

Thanks for the kind words; I'm sure we'll be OK, it's nothing money can't fix (although actually having the money is a different problem). We were much luckier than some.

Laser-eyed cat has a brother but I didn't manage to get him in the picture, unfortunately... maybe next time. I'll make sure not to cross the streams, though!

Thanks again for the custom playing cards! Definitely one of the best Woot!-branded products ever.

1. Kids size 10 "and that's why you always leave a note" t-shirt
2. Mints in mini Duff beer can
3. Pruning shears
4. Wired computer mouse
5. Crab bag

And from the garage of a woot employee:

Ice Skates! (size 11 2/3)
...shipped all the way to the frozen wonderland of central Florida.

Thanks Woot! I must say, I was completed blindsided by the ice skates. Definitely was a surprise to see them.
