Do they ever even put up a Bucketful of Curmudgeons during a Wootoff any more? I never see 'em.

There are too many Woots to keep track of now. They've diluted their brand something awful.

The imposter monkeys were $1.99 each.
And, yes the "good" (original) monkeys were $1.99 each (plus $5 shipping.)

I guess this (100% price increase) is why we had the imposter ones for a while.

Woot is officially dead to me.

Annoying Woot-offs, no Big Ol' Cataclysm, and even crappier items than in the past.

Goodbye Woot.

The first line of the description says "yes this is the good monkey."

Take that how you will.

The head of the large monkeys was disproportionate to the body. I think these are the normal size since the head doesn't look huge.

Well... the other one during the armeged-off was 1.99... so hmmm... may be the bigger one... may just be more expensive... maybe the Big Ol' Cataclysm.. maybe just a price hike.

I believe so, I remember reading somewhere that they are only doing it for facebook and twitter.

This is the original brand of monkeys! Normal size. Like everything else in this cruel world, the price to make them has gone up.

I will go play with my original monkey that was $1.99 and the huge that was $4.99

I cut the screaming box out of it before I give it to the dog. I figure the box and battery would be really bad if he ate it. (and he would)

Well worth it. The masked monkeys sucked. I worked with the guys who supply Woot their monkeys (or at least the people who are on the tag) and ... yah - they were running out of the good ones. I had to get a lot of capless monkeys due to the shortage with their supplier. I would rather pay a bit more to get my good friends, then pay less and get the cousins we don't like to mention at family reunions ...

Only the masked monkeys are "inbred" in captivity. Hence, their masks of shame.

Now I am really confused... I was told they were the ninja monkeys that only certain people could see... wait that doesn't make sense since you can't see a ninja so never mind.

I knew it was coming since they pulled the popcorn maker halfway through their stock. It went from 50-something percent left to Sold Out.

Hmm I sense a woot video where the pimp shows up and pushes the monkey sale like those adopt a kid organizations.

Do you think the following monkey shirts will ever be offered again? Ours are showing the signs of constant wash and wear fatigue.

My dog (a Lab cross) loves these, and never breaks the "screamer".
My friend's Australian Herding dog (border collie cross?) loves the scream, then proceeds to crunch it to death. ET-death?= 2 minutes. I just got him another just to make him feel guilty again!
