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.

I don’t know man. #primeday is kinda a bust. It’s just a bunch of garbage.

#PrimeDay is pretty cool, that is if you're looking for binoculars, dog treats, or chef hats

When I die, I want whoever was responsible for #PrimeDay to lower me down into my grave so I can be let down one more time

#PrimeDay is like when your friend claims he's throwing an epic party but you show up and there's only a 6-pack and a bowl of Cheetos

Here's the #PrimeDay spoiler: the good stuff will be gone before you get it; the rest will be multivitamins and compression shorts

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.”
