This weekend our humble little online junk shop had its fifth anniversary. Five years! That’s long enough to earn a college degree, even allowing for a one-year flunk-cushion. (Come on, no one passes “Intro to Ceramics” on the first try, right?)

Traditionally, the fifth year is the “crap” anniversary. We bet you can’t wait to discover whether you’re on the list to get a bag of ours! You’re so weird that way. Well, kill three of those agonizing minutes with this short presentation from the Woot podcast team. Time flies when you’re dodging the video feces flung by our fuzzy friends Mort and Monte!

Mortimer & Monte: In the Break Room from Woot Video on Vimeo.

Cool, I like it. Although, it does sound vaguely familiar...

Is Woot giving them a raise on the 24th...because according to the labor law website behind Monte...they will have to be paid $7.25 an hour...that's almost a bag o' apcray an hour.

WHAT????I lost my signature, oh well.

Perhaps in the excitement of the moment and seeing the high quality of puppetry I missed something, but the title of the blog is "Mortimer & Monte Sing..."

Monte did not sing.

The suit that will arise for false advertising may bring further inspiration for the next video.

LOL

Royalty fee is nine hundred dollars!

The disappointment was palpable.

I'm not sure Monte actually read the Wikipedia article.

Got it!

Lovely tune...

The fact that I own one of these monkeys and a set of Woot lights doesn't cloud the fact that in my opinion, Mortimer is a musical genius...

Hold up, wait a minute. Are you suggesting the apcray comes from the monkeys?!? Woot has a shop of Flying Monkeys that makes the apcray? Like Santa's elves? Whoa o_o

Feliz cumpleanos Woot!

I am happy to say that I am a proud owner of Woot lights, a Woot Monkey and have had the pleasure of scoring one "balso of caca". With that said, you are by far the "bestest crappiest" friend I love to hate (especially when things sellout too quick). Thank you for being part of my everyday life.

Holly Crud! I didn't know that...as the video states, you can be fined for public performance (as well as in a movie, or tv) for singing happy birthday. Darn you Warner Brothers!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now we need a Podsafe birthday celebration song!

Happy belated birthday Woot! You could probably find my original birthday with buried in the lights thread but I thought that this would be easier. P.S. I'll trade you some really sick Woot! coupons if you'd throw a mini monkey (death by cat seems to be a problem with mine) in my bag since I had a four for my order number but I'm still a huge fan! J/k about the bribe, not the huge fan part.


Where do you find a Roomba? At the Innba!
