Important Update on the BOC!

Since 2004, we’ve sold over 250,000 Bags o’ Crap. They are Woot’s most important brand asset and AN ICON of internet culture. Naturally, for our big 20th Birthday Celebration we wanted to do something REALLY SPECIAL!

So, we hired consultants!

For over 16 months, they worked on every angle of our beloved Bag o’ Crap, looking for ways to bring new excitement and synergies to the BOC. The brainstorming was intense and passionate.

They wanted to charge more. We said no. They wanted to make the bags smaller. We said no. They wanted to make them eligible only for Bitcoin. We said no. They wanted to make them available only for left-handed customers. We said maybe, then we said no.

They presented over 200 mock-ups and designs for the all-new BOC, including bold new directions like:

  • Barrel o’ Crap
  • Bin o’ Crap
  • Backpack o’ Crap
  • Briefcase o’ Crap
  • Bundle o’ Crap
  • Bowl o’ Crap
  • Bucket o’ Crap
  • Bindle o’ Crap
  • Bladder o’ Crap
  • Bundle o’ Crap
  • Bunch o’ Crap
  • Binder o’ Crap
  • Bento o’ Crap
  • Briefcase o’ Crap

But one idea stood above all others:

Box1

INTRODUCING THE ALL-NEW BOX O’ CRAP.

And yet, it still wasn’t good enough. So we added a Birthday Logo:

Box2

An icon, updated for the 21st Century. Look for it on your doorstep soon! (Well, if you get one).

Maybe they’ll use all the money they get from not selling bocs to get everyone that search bar they’ve always wanted.

People have never asked for a search bar though.

Also, did you keep one in pristine unopened condition? It won’t fit in your lunch box though.

The joke is on you.

I DO have an unopened B0C paper bag.

That doesn’t count. It has to be an original boc fresh from the warehouse.

I have an unopened mini block kit.

(I shoulda gotten one for building, instead of buying LEGO pieces and making a disproportionate one.)

Still doesn’t count. It’s not an authentic Woot bag of crap, with the contents untouched by flippers.

If you’re looking for unopened B0Cs, I think that @Narfcake still has a bunch of those.

So he has a bigger collection than you? Cats are smarter than penguins.
