Having fun with Amazon's "bigger than Black Friday" Prime Day?

You're probably the only one. I guess you're the guy who got that 4K TV for 66% off before the deal ran out.

According to people – a lot of people – Amazon's big 20th birthday celebration is a complete bust. Unless you're looking for the Lord of the Rings trilogy on Blu-ray.

This is just a sampling. Just check out Twitter, you'll see what I see.

Hey, at least there's that 55-gallon drum of lube.

Update: Amazon has released a statement, touting the number of Rubbermaid sets sold:

"Prime Day peak order rates have already surpassed 2014 Black Friday," said Greg Greeley, Vice President Amazon Prime. "Prime members have already bought tens of thousands of Fire TV Sticks, 35,000 Lord of the Rings Blu-Ray sets, 28,000 Rubbermaid sets, and 4,000 Echo devices in 15 minutes. The Kate Spade purse was gone in less than a minute. We also sold 1,200 of the $999 TVs in less than 10 minutes. And there are thousands more deals coming."
