I know I've written about Woot before, but it was in a really early post. For those of you unfamiliar with the site, they only sell one item a day. It's usually some sort of electronic device, and it's usually a pretty good deal. The item goes up at noon, and stops selling at midnight. If they sell out of the item before midnight, a new item will not be posted until the next day at noon. The beauty of Woot, in my opinion, despite their very clever simplistic selling strategy, is the way the writers for the site describe the product. It's usually witty and sarcastic, and always enjoyable to read even if you're not interested in the product they're selling. They also have bulletin boards and blogs on the site, which is where I found this list today which made me chuckle. I hope you enjoy it as well.

Also, I didn't watch the Superbowl. Aside from the fact that I'm working anyway, I really REALLY hate football. But the ads are funny, like this one:

That was my favorite ad, Edit.

How can you hate football? It was a great halftime show and great 4th quarter.

Why do I fear that this ad's Godfather connection was too subtle for most folks watching the game?

Hilarious list, btw

Want to know what was even MORE subtle? That actor in the Audi ad was Alex Rocco, the guy who played Moe Green (the casino owner who got shot in the eye while wearing glasses) from The Godfather. Awesome casting.
