Crabs Are the New Bacon On Deals.Woot

You can see the power of community in action today at Deals.Woot.com. I took this screenshot around 6am this morning, which shows lots of crab related deals on the home page. 10 of the 15 deals are crab related.

I’m not sure what this is about. It might be Wooters trying to replace the old go-to deal of bacon products. Some people are saying it might be the work of Anonymous at 4Chan. Either way, it’s a great example of how a strong online community can influence the web.
