(1) Kodak EasyShare Z1275 12MP/720p HD Digital Camera with 5x Optical Zoom
Description: (click show to see it)
You've seen armadillos, herds of hippopotami,
Kangaroos, <A href="http://www.sergeyphoto.com/underwater/nudibranchs.html">nudibranchs</A>, <A href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WuFyqzerHS8">lyrebirds</A>, and platypi.
But no beasts anywhere are anywhere near as fabulous
As the fauna to be found in Kambingo-Durambulus.
Come for a safari, say the friendly Kambingans,
But be very careful about what you're bringing.
Before your Kambingo Air flight's in the air
Make sure you pack this Kodak EasyShare.
Look! The rare gnuffle-bird, tending his nest!
12-megapixel photos bring out his best.
It's a rubber rhinoceros. See how he bends?
Zoom right on in with your Variogon lens.
The nine-legged snake, such a sight to see
You won't want to trust it to your memory.
The mighty gorilla-fish, a curious mixture -
Wait 'till the folks back home see your pictures.
When the sun sets each night down Durambulus way
A mysterious ritual takes your breath away.
A flock of lula-kulas with many-colored feathers
Make a gigantic picture as they all sleep together.
Some nights they do Rembrandt, sometimes they do Weegee,
Sometimes a cave painting from the island of Fiji.
Keep a steady hand because it would be a real shame
If this spectacular spectacle was lost out-of-frame.
And what of the running of the two-headed buffabouth,
Who run north to the north, then south to the south?
Video of these creatures zigzagging would be swell.
Good thing this camera shoots HD video as well.
Animals like these ones you don't see every day
Unless you've got your own photos of them tucked away.
All you need is a <A href="http://shirt.woot.com/">t-shirt</A>, a trusty local guide,
And of course the Kodak Z-one-two-seven-five!

Happy birthday to us! Happy birthday to us! Happy birthday, dear ourselves! Happy birthday to us! <a href="http://shirt.woot.com/Blog/ViewEntry.aspx?Id=5334">We're totally throwing this awesome party</a>
and you should make the scene in style with this awesome shirt, modeled
after the iconic Shirt.Woot bag. (Hey, it's our birthday. We're allowed
to call our stuff "iconic".)
Each shirt will be individually (but randomly) numbered, from 1 to...er...the total number of shirts we're selling today.
According to the baby experts, here's what you can expect from us now that we're one year old:
sleeping 12 hours a night
increasingly frequent temper tantrums
drinking from a cup with help
exploring our genitals
speaking a few words, but still doing lots of babbling
that sounds like us! Somebody cut the cake - we've got tantrums to
throw and genitals to explore! Because it's our birthday!
This shirt was designed by: the most talented one-year-olds since the early Olsen twins.
Wear this shirt: either to our party in St. Louis or to your own Shirt.Woot birthday observance in your home.
Don't wear this shirt:
and stuff yourself into an envelope. Somebody might think you're a
Shirt.Woot bag and try to "open" you, with terrible consequences.
This shirt tells the world: "I will pay you for the privilege of advertising your business on my torso."
We call this color: I'm Dreaming Of A White Shirt.Wootday.
3X - M: 14.13" x 19.5"

Dear sirs and/or madams and/or other:
I am writing to bring to your attention a scandalous loophole in the laws concerning children and alcohol. As you know, Americans can proudly claim some of the most restrictive alcohol laws in the free world. Decrepit failed states like Ireland, France, and China wallow in anarchy and chaos, permitting children to drink at age 18 or even younger. Only the U.S.A. follows the time-tested maxim: "Just because we trust you to fight in a war and vote for the president doesn't mean we trust you with a glass of wine."
All well and good...but what about making that wine?
It has come to my attention that one Brian Benson of Paso Robles, California allegedly began making wine at the tender age of 12. As if that weren't bad enough, he began this illicit activity under the tutelage of his very own father. While I possess no evidence that Brian actually drank any wine, for a child, merely being in the presence of wine is bad enough. Studies show that children who are placed in the same room with alcohol for even ten seconds inevitably become drunks, winos, hobos, punk rockers, pornographers, and Chicago Cubs fans. I can't remember which studies, but believe me, they were shocking.
While Brian is no longer a juvenile, he continues to flaunt his ill-gained knowledge with his very own <a href="http://www.brianbensoncellars.com/">Brian Benson Cellars</a> line of wines, begun when he was just 19 years old. Now he is 25, which means his current activities are unfortunately legal. But one taste of his Syrah will prove that there's no way he could've learned this much about winemaking in just four years.
The Brian Benson 2005 Syrah Denner Vineyard scored 90 points from Robert Parker, who called it "an impressive example of full-bodied Syrah possessing terrific minerality". The previous vintage was also full-bodied and bursting with fruit and berry flavors tempered with a dash of earth and spice. Note, please, that these grapes must have been planted when Mr. Benson was not yet of legal drinking age. While grapes on the vine are not alcoholic, they were clearly planted with alcoholic intent.
Science proves that on a person's 21st birthday, a tiny switch is thrown in his brain, making him immediately more mature. The scofflaw Brian Benson's outrageous behavior flies in the face of our reasonable, reality-based alcohol laws, and I demand he be punished. It may not be illegal to make wine before you turn 21, but this case is urgent enough to warrant casting aside our laws. May I suggest putting Brian Benson in stocks in the Paso Robles town square, so the populace can mock and abuse him? It would be for his own good. If we have to destroy our children in order to save them, that is a sacrifice I am willing to make.
Please, won't you think of the children -
