    MAN!! I just missed the "bag of crap!!!" This was the first time I had even ever saw it! However, their sick sense of humor in the next item up for sale almost makes up for it:

    Dear Woot,

    I read your site all the time, but I never thought anything like this would happen to me! I was just sitting in a diner, waiting for my onion rings, when the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen sat down next to me. I said hello, and she waved her cigarette in response. Then she looked me up and down. I didn’t even know what to say!

    After a few seconds, she leaned in real close and asked me if I had five bucks. When I said yes, she asked me if I wanted to go in the back and give her a pearl necklace. Thankfully, I was carrying a Hikari 17.5” Japanese Cultured “Akoya” Salt Water Pearl Necklace that I’d found at your site! Who says it’s a waste of time to check it out every day?

    The lady seemed really sophisticated, so I knew she’d enjoy the AA Quality Class Japanese Cultured Akoya Saltwater Pearls. And I was certain that the white pearls with rose overtones and mostly pink body color were going to look really great on her. She asked if I had protection and I was able say yes because of the well designed Silk Thread that had knots between each pearl, protecting them in case of an accident. I couldn’t believe it was working out so well! I gave her five bucks and we went to the back of the diner.

    Once we got to the booth, I handed her the Hikari 17.5” Japanese Cultured “Akoya” Salt Water Pearl Necklace and she was so surprised. I guess that’s because she wasn’t expecting a necklace with a 14 Karat White Gold Fish Hook Filigree Clasp. She tried to tell me I misunderstood her meaning, but I wasn’t hearing any of that nonsense. I’m a man of the world, after all! I read woot.com every day! I’m hep to the score!

    I have to say, those moments in the diner were something I’ll always remember. I don’t know if it will ever happen again, but a fella can always dream, can’t he? Rest assured, I’m buying another Hikari 17.5” Japanese Cultured “Akoya” Salt Water Pearl Necklace just in case. And maybe next time… I’ll need two together!

    Sincerely,
    Oyster Lover

                Sounds like you might need the WootAlyzer for those W00t Offs. It will alert you whenever anything new is posted on W00t. I can't survive without it.
