And now some Robert Palmer lyrics from "Addicted to Bacon"

Woot lights are on, but they're not home
Your mind is not your own
Your heart sweats, your body shakes
More bacon is what it takes
You can't sleep, you can't eat
There's no doubt, you're in deep
Your throat is tight, you can't breathe
More bacon is all you need.

Whoa, you like to think that you're immune to the stuff, oh yeah
It's closer to the truth to say you can't get enough
You know you're gonna have to face it, you're addicted to Bacon....

This could be a secret message. Could be they're hinting that we're all pigs & should die. Or they like bacon & want to die. Or Paul is dead. Or....

L'Chaim and rest in peace.



Landsman! I'm hoping for a good kosher wine on wine.woot before Rosh Hashana. I'd be in for 3. (They had one before Pesach in 2011, and it was good and a good price.)

I wonder if the next item isn't up yet because the Woot staff really didn't expect this to sell.

I really shouldn't comment, but I'm so stunned, I'll rattle this off.
1. Wouldn't be the first woot-off ending early. I think because they couldn't predict who would buy a COFFIN, they put it out a bit early. Hand it to Woot: when they said it was the death of bacon, they pulled out all of the stops.
2. Wouldn't be the first summer woot-off without a bag. I think it was 2 summers ago they did this in August, too. Yes, I'd have liked a chance at one, too.
2a. A lot of the "good" products I think have been shuttled to the sister sites (that's where I bought from this woot-off). This has been tech and bacon mostly.
3. Wouldn't be the first time they didn't offer a monkey.
4. Wouldn't be the first time the lights kept going at the end.
5. Wouldn't be the first time they ended it with a really weird product: I present to you the Flush Light
http://www.woot.com/forums/viewpost.aspx?postid=3475961

6. Wouldn't you love to be in the mind of this person thinking about buying the coffin? I imagined,...
"Well, the stock market is shaky, I don't want to buy $200 in toilet paper at Costco's, a car just depreciates, gold goes on wild fluctuations, I'm too lazy to own real estate. What could I buy that will hold its value over time until I really need it? Hmmmmmmm...."

Yes, the theme was either driven by bacon coffin concept, or maybe the coffin does not really exist and is a figment of our imagination.

I'm in agreement. Woot! has jumped the shark, in my (never to be) humble opinion.

I've been here for over 8 years, and am sad to see the death of Woot!

Now, if someone actually from Woot! wants to post here, and dissuade me, I could be influenced to listen. Unfortunately, the lack of posts from Woot! is DEAFENING!!

Thunder, any comments?

well sure, it's not a surprise to them. They haven't sold any new products in over a year. Their best programmers were sent to amazon, while the rest were allowed to stay in texas. There is obviously a plan we are not aware of. (and it's not woot's plan)

The all you can ship is for orders in the same day. Woot headquarters is located in the central timezone, so it is still Wed. Woot time.

Uh...no. However, since w00t's founder sold out to Amazon and left...I think maybe there's been two? Not sure, since it isn't fun anymore?
