So what have you gotten in your BOC?

Here's what was in my BOC's. One had a camera bag, a flash light and a box of 100 used 3.5" floppy discs. There was something else, too, but I can't remember. The other one had another camera bag, an American eagle mouse pad, a 2.4 ghz cordless phone, an ethernet cable on a retractable reel, and another flashlight. Mind you, these were 3 crap bags and cost $8 shipped.

Okay, all, the BOC was just up and of course, crashed the servers. I have no idea if I scored. Will have to wait for the confirming e-mail. Anyway, here's the description of the latest Random Bag of Crap:
Bag O’ Crap XXII

Wait, wait, why are you clicking that button? Don't click! You don't want this junk. Seriously, clicking that I WANT ONE button is a one-way ticket to disappointment and shame. You'll cram a few useless clumps of consumer flotsam into your life, be out like eight bucks, and for what? For what? What is the sound of one hand crapping?

If you must proceed, CHECK THIS OUT. Somebody misunderstands this concept every time, so please READ THE BIG PRINT:
3. YOU WILL WASTE FREIGHT IF YOU ORDER FEWER THAN THREE. And you’ll get less crap. Wait, why is that bad again? Do you people really need more crap?
You’re only getting one bag, no matter what. The order quantity you select is the number of crappy items we’ll put in your bag. Select THREE. Later, you’ll enjoy the satisfaction of taunting the surprisingly large number of less observant Wooters who ordered less than THREE.
As usual, we promise nothing about the quality or the desirability of these bags or their contents, except to promise that their quality will be low and their desirability will be non-existent. The best quantity you could possibly order would be ZERO.

I. Thou shalt expect nothing beyond one bag of some kind and your chosen quantity of crappy items (which should be THREE).
II. Thou shalt not whine and complain when some people’s crap turns out to be nicer than yours.
III. Thou shalt take a moment to consider whether you might be better off just not buying this crap.
IV. Thou shalt not order just one crap and blame it on anything but your own inattention.
V. To paraphrase Stephen Stills, shalt thou not get the crap you want, want the crap you get.
  • The crap will be shipped via SmartPost, the crappiest shipping method available to us.

If there are any fellow DC folks out there suffering from insomnia, here's a thought:

Let's Woot-Off together!!!!

(There is a woot-off in progress, for anyone who's interested.)

Alas, the woot-off has come to an end. It's all over but the screaming woot monkeys and I'm spent!
