Yesterday, woot! announced their acquisition by Amazon in a fantastic blog post. I mean, really fantastic. I shall excerpt several awesome bits now, but please read it all. I implore you.

We think now is the right time to join with Amazon because, quite simply, every company that becomes a subsidiary gets two free downloads until the end of July, and we very much need that new thing with Trent Reznor’s wife on our iPods.


[D]on’t worry that our culture will suddenly take a leap forward and become cutting-edge. We’re still going to be the same old bottom-feeders our customers and readers have come to know and love, and each and every one of their pre-written insult macros will still be just as valid in a week, two weeks, or even next year. For Woot, our vision remains the same: somehow earning a living on snarky commentary and junk.

Okay, that’s all you get. You have to read the post now.

Update: I forgot about the rapping monkey.
