I don't know what the video entry is but I am ready to embarrass myself in front of the community for the sake of the Monkey Games because the REAL monkey's are back! Plus I read the potential prize is a coveted monkey that will never be for sale, nothing like awesome rareness added to the growing collection!

I'm not attempting to sway the troops, but Kelly Green goes well with Khaki, Army Green or Camouflage.

As A 2011 "Your Chance to Win" Bronze Medalist, I can't wait for this year's games!

I had to win my monkey last year. Thankfully, I can purchase my monkey this year.

I imagine there won't be a BuckyBall Competition this year.

I have recruited 2 people to Woot for the Monkey Games although they did not pick Team Red like me.

Everyone in my neighborhood refers to me as "that old monkey lover in the grey house" and I've said in the past,"If the old tried n true Woot monks come back,I'm a buyer" so I'm in for the seven snazzy simians and cost be damned!

Hard work? I thought Woot had the Woot monkeys for that? You know, if you have enough typewriters and Woot monkeys, they'll type out all of Shakespeare's works?

I just thought their posts were just the non-Shakespeare stuff.

Plus I don't look good in brown. But then that green doesn't really do me justice as well.

I'm thrilled the real monkeys are back. Woot was starting to feel like a shell of its former self. Real monkeys make me think Woot has gotten a little bit of its soul back. Yay!

Finally got me some monkeys! In for the set of 7, hopefully I can keep them away from the cats (and that means the husband too). It seems like most of what I buy here winds up as a cat toy one way or another.

forever fighting the urge to buy something just because it is cheap and cool...wait, it's cheap and cool, let me click that big yellow button!

Temptation!!! I REALLY love green (and TT), and I feel a strong urge to support HR and DW (but I have more than enough gray tees), but worst of all I am spending every penny I can beg, borrow or charge putting my son back in college. Argh!

EDIT: And the REAL woot monkeys! Double argh!

I would love one of these shirts, but the price just sucks. I mean, come on, you can get the same quality shirt from the shirt!woot daily special for $12 and those are usually multi-color printing. Not to forget that these are shameless (very cool, but very shameless) self promotions.

If they were listed at $10 a shirt, you'd have my money.

Just what I need. More monkeys.

Woot has done something to my brain that makes me order every monkey.

I missed the sock monkey and had to get it on ebay.

Well, at least my brain resisted buying two sets.
I have two of every other one, except the sock.

WE LURV YOU TOO! Dork!!!
No greater love is lost than that not shared.

Well played Woot. So there is controversy in the US uniforms being made in China, so let's keep the controversy up with the monkey games shirts being made in another country as well (minus the tank tops)

Hmm... the 5 pack of monkeys averages $2.40 per monkey, but the 7 pack adds the final two monkeys at a rate of 4 bucks each.

Sounds like those departments need raises for being so much more valuable than the others.

Especially the lone Texas moderator silently included with green.

Devs? Does that mean devils, deviants, deevolvers, devices, or what?

You'll probably try to tell me it's something lam e like "developers." Yeah, right.

No, no. You got it right with "deviants".

All writers, even our lone one down in Texas, are under the Creative umbrella. But so am I, so I'm not sure what that will tell you woob woob woob.

I'm not enough of a hardcore wooter to really "get" the monkey packs, or to have a favorite squad to rep as far as the t-shirts go...but when you work out as often as I do, you can never have too many tank tops or water bottles.

In for one of all three, if they're still in stock when I get home from work.

If they were $5 each would you spring for two ?

Since these are shipping out at a later date, do I get billed when I order them or when the order ships?

Not a huge deal, just curious.


MOD (TT): When you order. Since we're hold a set for you, we need to make sure you're good for the dough. Otherwise, someone else gets the set.

At $5, I'd buy 20, because that's cheaper than you can buy t-shirts at Kmart.

I'm not asking them to lose money on the shirts. If Woot! was losing money on the daily shirts, you'd think the costs would have been adjusted by now.

I've bought the $15 shirts before but $15 only makes sense on the reconing shirts because they are lower volume setups than the daily special and you are paying for the lost opportunity since you didn't jump on the initial bandwagon. I'm OK wit dat.

Now, if the shirts would be top-shelf super-special-quality (i.e. brand name stock shirts) the $15 would be worth concideration. They're not. They are the same stock as the daily shirts (or so it says in the product description).



To avoid a tirade with accompanied cost breakdowns of what I'm fairly certain they are spending and expected profit margins, I shall summarize...

I don't like the price so I will not exersise the Volentary Exchange clause of Capitolism and succumb to blatant Consumerism.

Is the water bottles plastic lined like the SIGG bottles?


MOD (TT): I'm asking around to see if anybody knows.


UPDATE:
There is no plastic liner.
It is a brushed stainless steel.

I am getting an error message when I try to look at the t-shirt sizes, anyone else? I can see the sizes for the sweatshirt though, so I already ordered one of them, but I didn't know whether to order the same size in the t-shirt as my other woot shirts or not.


MOD (TT): I see it too. I'll report it and it should be fixed by tomorrow morning. Sorry for the problems.
