I am so happy the World didn't end, if it would have ended I would have not been able to get my Christmas 2012 Big ol' Celebration.
"But Bags of Crap have not been sold in a long time", you say?
"What is this big woot! box doing on my porch, I didn't order anything!", I said.
After opening the box and searching though all the glorius crap, I found a letter:
Colonel Crap wrote:Dear Loyal Particiapnt or Participants, theguruguys? Are you plural? Singular? Are you an exceptionally rich white white man strapped to the back of Rosie Grier?
Whatever you are, theguruguys, you've impressed us. And at least of you has earned himself a B. O. C.
Please, if there's more than one of you, try to share, okay? We can't just send a bunch in case your actually twenty or thirty guys. What if your just one? How would we look then?
In future, consider making your name more clear. But thank you deeply for what you do in the forums. You, however many of you there are, are appreciated.
To Answer Mr. Crap, I mean Colonel Crap's question, there is only one of me at the moment. The Guru Guys is the name of my business. While I have had employees in the past, it has mainly just been just me doing IT consultation in the Houston area for over ten years now.
So why not just use 'theguruguy' without the plural, it would make more sense? Well when I started my web page, back in 2003, theguruguy was already taken. Even more frustrating was that theguruguy was taken on a few forums that I was active on so I used theguruguys when creating accounts on those forums. When I came to woot! I didn't think I'd be participating in the forums much and many of the items I initially ordered were for the business, so for the sake of keeping it easy for me to remember my user name on all the forums I kept it theguruguys. As as side effect (or clever marketing?), when you searched google for theguruguys my web page appeared, when you search for theguruguy my web page didn't appear (at the time, it does now). So that is why I am plural, but not (Much like ThunderThighS... then again maybe both her Thighs do the typing?
Oh yeah, the Big ol' Celebration! It was my best one yet as far as items I can actually use, usually I give away most of the crap. It contained:

Thanks a lot woot for the surprise Christmas gift.

Merry Christmas to all!
