Happy Woot's 9th birthday, y'all! If we could, we'd stop by your desk, cockpit, dugout, lifeguard chair, or clown car and have a piece of cake with you. But any idiot knows that's impossible, so instead, we're inviting you to eat video cake with us in a live stream we're calling Bag of Cake! Here it is right here!


Streaming live video by Ustream

If it's between 9 AM and 5 PM Pacific time, you should be looking at a bonafide Woot staffer eating authentic cake in our lifelike video studio. And if you're extremely lucky, that Woot staffer will show or tell you how to get your hands on our gift to counterintuitive marketing: a Bag of Crap!

Maybe he or she will hold up a sign with a URL on it. Or read a URL aloud. Or give you some other instructions for landing everyone's favorite worthless pile of junk. The point is, these BOC shout-outs could happen at any time throughout the day. Look away at your peril!

The party keeps on going at Shirt.Woot, where we're offering cake-themed shirts at 20% off - including the return of the long-beloved, long-unavailable The Cake is a Liar! Not only do these shirts look great, but they're great for wiping cake off of your mouth with. But don't miss the festivities: this sale ends at 5 PM Pacific.

And whatever happens, we hope you enjoy the Bag of Cake. Staring at strangers eating for hours, just for a chance to buy some worthless castoffs: if there's a better way to sum up these past 9 years of Woot, consider yourselves lucky we didn't think of it!

Good idea! I like it

But Youtube/UStream/Justin.TV/etc is blocked at my work (as it is for probably many others).

Wife: Do you really need all this junk?
Me: At least I don't ask you if it makes me look fat.

Blocked here too. I'm trying to watch on my phone, but the poor little guy gets overloaded just running Facebook, so it's pretty hopeless...

Let me guess, between 9am until 5pm PDT we get to enjoy EVERY w00t Staffer eating a piece of birthday dessert in 15 minute intervals.

And at random, one of them will tell us how to get B,0,C.

Now it's fun to have MS and be disabled! ha!

While my 2yr old son would probably have the patience to watch a live cast for 8 hrs. I do not.

Thanks TT. It looks like the majority of us nine to fivers on the west coast will be work [redacted] by the firewalls.

Oh goodness, advertisements. I can just see now the rage that might induce when certain cake eating parts are blocked out.

Cake with water for breakfast is yucky ... should have had coffee. He is in Seattle, after all.

So, who is this guy? Does he post here? ... Oh, new person!

quality posts: 63 Private Messages nvaine

For all the blocked people:

1) Guy eats cake.
2) Guy drinks water.
3) Guy looks at phone.
(repeat)
4) Guy puts on another shirt.
5) Guy eats cake...

How sad.
