Our first Bandolier of Carrots!

During yesterday's woot-off, we got our first B.O.C.! What is a "Bandolier of Carrots" you ask? It's a bag of crap. Really. At the end of every woot-off, a bag of crap -- really a blind grab bag of sorts -- is offered for $1.00 plus shipping. It might be junk -- but it also might contain some really cool stuff such as, um, I'm not sure, but it might be really cool. I'll let you know when we get it.

As you can read about here, the woot software filters out phrases so instead of "Bag of Crap" showing up all the time, the text shows up as something with the same initials -- like "Bandolier of Carrots." Another example is "Where's the Feet," which actually means "What the F*@!." (It took me a few weeks to figure that one out.)

Let me tell you, when we knew for sure that we had successfully gotten the B.O.C., it qualified as one of the most exciting Friday nights in a long time.
