Amazon Acquires Woot

(YouTube link)

Woot, the discount website that sells one item a day, has been bought by Amazon, which they are quite happy about. In addition to the above video posted at their blog, CEO Matt Rutledge wrote the most awesome memo ever announcing the acquisition to Woot employees.
We are excited about doing this for all sorts of reasons. One, our business model is so vague that there’s no way Amazon can possibly change what it is we’re truly doing: preparing the way for the rise of the Lava Men in 2012. Also, our deal means that Jason Toon will finally be released from that Mexican jail owned by Zappos honcho Tony Hsieh. No, don’t lie, Tony, we’ve seen the paperwork. And we need a powerful ally in case Steve Jobs finally breaks down and comes after us for all our Apple jokes over the years. Don’t think of it as a buyout; think of it as NATO!
