Yes, expect to see bacon flavored hard drives, bacon flavored TV's, and bacon flavored memory cards during this next wootoff.

I think it means that Woot is finally catching up to what the internet has known for a little while - the bacon trend is over.

I wish someone would figure this out about cupcakes.

Looks like they're selling off all of their bacon-themed shirts as well.

@saramwrap: The (cup)cake is NOT a lie!

@oo7slice: Not so much selling off, but reselling, as the side sales are reprints, not old stock.

The question is, after last week's offerings, will there be a Bacon On Croissant offered during this week's Wootoff? Last month thre was a Woot birthday BOC, but then no BOC during the July Wootoff. I guess we'll just have to wait expectantly and see what happens!

Last week they ran a poll asking which people would like put to rest More Cowbell, Pirates, Ninjas, That's what she said, Bacon or Mighty Ducks 2. Bacon won by a pretty good margin. Results can be seen here: http://www.woot.com/forums/viewpost.aspx?postid=5125097&pageindex=1&replycount=50

@moosezilla: i had the same problem - no newsletter for me either (and I double checked to make sure I'm subscribed and in my spam folder). I got last month's just fine.

@gonffen: I think it happened around the time someone made bacon-scented incense.

It's another clue!! Add another one to the list of tags that will no longer be allowed on the front page! (at least that's my best guess)

We're actually announcing woot offs now? Oh my, woot, how thing's have changed.

@moosezilla: Moose PM me your e-mail address and I will forward it over to you.

Sounds like they have found something equally annoying to talk about.

I don't really remember Woot being on the Bacon Train to begin with?

vote-for2vote-against

I just ate some fresh bacon for breakfast earlier. It didn't taste retired to me. Perhaps that something which happens when it goes off?

Hope they bring back the bacon-flavored Sansas.

Good. Now just retire zombies and everything will be right as rain.

I'm sitting on an old $5 coupon code set to expire at the end of this month. I hereby declare that this shall be put towards the purchase of a bacon-related product.

@meh3884: They have announced many recent woot-offs either in the newsletter, or in the daily mailings.

vote-for3vote-against

no more bacon, no more sanza, no more dirt, no more fun.
