We have seen the future of the Woot-Off, and we're frightened. We suppose it's our own fault for asking you to Show us something that we'll sell in a Woot-Off five hundred years from now. Hold us now, protect us, as we glimpse at your unsettling visions of a nightmare tomorrow:

We tell ourselves we won't reward any more Soylent Green references, and then something like this comes along and makes a fool of us once again.
Third prize - $20

Win the Monkey Prize once, shame on you. Win it twice, shame on us. Win it three times, shame on the American psychiatric industry. We're cutting you off after this one, hipbabybob. We're sure you possess the "talent" to win many more of these, but it wouldn't be fair to those who don't possess your natural gifts. Click for a larger version, if you must.
Luckily for us, we'll be long dead by the time these worst-case scenarios come to pass. While we're waiting for the sweet release of death, money winners, please email your Paypal info to firstname.lastname@example.org. Monkey Prize winner, send your mailing address to the same. Honorable Mentioneers may use coupon code HONMEN-FS for free shipping on a future order. Until next time, don't look ahead. The future might be gaining on you.
