Well I checked through the thread and I noticed at least one other Bunnies Ogling Carrots that was identical to yours. However one unlucky wooter only received 2 of his 3 required craps...luckily it seems a quick discussion with service helped them out! Sometimes it just the luck of the draw, however I would have to agree that it is a bit disheartening to see some people with amazing Bunnies Ogling Carrots while others (like yourself) with very sub-par bags. Mine should be here in a couple days..still waiting patiently ;) No offense but hopefully I'm not in the same situation as yourself :/

Sadly I have to wait till tomorrow to complain or sing praise about how crappy my crap is. I'm jealous of everyone that's received their stuff already.

Your post reminds me of this very old story by another wooter. I still laugh when I read it.



That's pretty awesome. Thanks for sharing. Clearly Wooters should not be trusted with any items that can electrify you.

They are replacement socks, because you informed the Colonel that you had wet socks in a post following this status update - Your reply is 3 posts under it.

My sympathies. It does suck. But remember the third and fourth crap commandments:

"III. Thou shalt notice that “crap” is right there in the title. Thou shalt not complain when it turns out we were telling the truth.

IV. Thou wouldst probably be better off spending thine eight bucks on just about anything else."

Many of us longtime Wooters have had times when we received truly craptastic crap. Heck, almost all the bags for the past year have been subpar. It's like the lottery. Sometimes you win $5, sometimes you win $100, sometimes you just lose.

Best of luck, and hope you manage to snag a fantastic crappy bag in the future!

That's a freakin' awesome catch. Nice one colonelcrap.

Though it makes me a quite a bit curious, given I had this post in response to the Colonel, which I just realized was designated a quality post with me requesting merely "robots." That could mean so many things...

My craps!


-A black duffle bag
-A black Medium Jerzeez T-shirt
-Two over-the-door hooks (value: $2!)
-A cream-colored (wanna trade for white??) 350-thread-count king-sized (doh! I'm on a queen) duvet-cover and sham set
-A foot flush (a level that hooks up to your toilet so you can flush by stepping on the lever instead of touching the handle)
-A pet blanket (value: $5!)
-A green snuggie

That $180 sheet set though...that was a surprise. http://www.zappos.com/home-source-international-microcotton-duvet-set-king-white

THANK YOU WOOT!

I know that they were replacement socks. (I thank you for bringing the rest of the troops up to speed. I should have re-briefed that intelligence. Fine job, sir!) I also know our fine Colonel sent me dry socks. But even if he wet them prior to drying and sending, I am still proud to have them!

I don't know. My Bag of Crap was crap exactly as advertised. It all goes into the "for free" stack at work.

6 lbs, 6 oz
12-1/4 x 12-3/8 x 18

6 bags of air
1 black duffle bag
1 small Zombie Bait t-shirt (won't fit my smaller kid)
1 foot flush kit
2 pop-up sprinklers

The bag is the only useful thing in the Bag. The shirt would be good but is too small for anyone (in my house or not, as it really is small).

Foot flush. Do you really want another item in the bathroom to clean? My wife looked at me like I was an idiot when I asked her if she wanted it installed.

I totally agree with an earlier poster that the pop-up sprinklers are stupid because if you have to run a hose to it in the first place then why not throw out a screw-on sprinkler head? Plus I haven't had grass since I put in my pool about five years ago (and I had my in-ground irrigation then).

B.O.C. - 10/23/08, 12/25/08, 12/25/09, 01/28/10, 06/24/10, 12/01/10, 08/17/11, 09/14/11, 10/12/11, 11/09/11, 12/06/11, 12/25/11, 01/19/12, 03/22/12,

*Sigh* How long do I need to wait if I need to declare my awesome 17 lb crap as falling into enemy hands? I have a sad feeling that spies have intercepted my awesome crap during the handoff between FedEx and USPS. They sadly may now have one or more or none of the following:

1 x black duffle bag
1 x flower bag
1 x 77 piece flatware set
1 x awesome woot shirt in a Large
1 x pet blanket
1 x pack of AA or AAA fuji batteries
1 x pair of headphones
1 x bug zappers
1 x crappy clips
1 x nascar coloring books
1 x popup lawn sprinkler

or something maybe unique and totally awesome like a
point and shoot digital camera
or
a digital audio receiver
or
HP Touchpad or other tablet

Woot! My Bunnies Ogling Carrots arrived while I was at work. I actually took the time to tape the un-boxing and then did a smashing job turning it into a full fledged movie! Hey, don't laugh too hard. I downloaded a video editor and spent the evening figuring it out. I think I did ok for spur of the moment and first time and all that.

Here, by popular demand is Cold Ethyl in the flesh. Yeah, kinda strange how manly her hands are huh?

Not too sure whether to be super hopeful or super bummed with my 3.8lb package that is just now leaving Texas headed towards Alabama. From the super fantastic hauls most people have gotten, I was getting hyped, but seeing the contents of the other under four pounders, I don't know. ;(

Maybe you have Jmp's 3 ipod touches to match the receipts. Could easily fit nicely in a 3.8lb box.

Not sure what to do about the water sprinkler either... I think I'll end up just modifying it to go with the other sprinklers in the back yard.

Yeah, Acid cigars are the ultimate. That box was Kuba Kuba, but I like a lot of them. Only one I tried that I didn't like was the Nasty (it was). Haven't tried the Blue Connecticut yet.

So far still just a 1 lb place holder and no dimensions. Due in Oregon on the 6th. Though that seems to be the trend with my past few bandoliers, no change until it actually gets to the great northwest.
