Black Friday? Hit It Like an Amazon.

Ace really hates rattling the tip jar, so every now and then the cobloggers do so on his behalf. This is one of those times, but we're going to do it a little differently.

The little, lonely PayPal button over there on the left side of the blog remains option A, and Ace swore he wouldn't blow all the dough on hookers and booze. This time.

But we're instituting a new program here at the HQ that lets you do something you'd do anyway, namely order stuff from Amazon.com, and simultaneously kick some dough towards the head Ewok.

It's simple. Just use the search widget below the fold instead of going to Amazon's home page to do your Black Friday shopping.

Ace is working on making this a permanent feature of the blog that'll have a search widget somewhere on the main page and direct links (like in Monty's Sunday Book Thread) that hit his account. But you elder morons remember the New Site, right? Yeah, you get the idea ... I'll take the over on 2013.

HARD TIMES ADDENDUM from lauraw: Seriously, guys? King Moron needs some new bling-bling. I think you can agree that this look is just starting to get a bit dated.

That's a several-years-old picture of our fuzzy, prolific content-provider, by the way.
I can't show you what he looks like now because it's shameful.

That hat-feather broke off to a nub ages ago and was never replaced, customs officials confiscated the leopard skin and fined the solid gold dollar-sign right off his chest, and the metal in his mouth was recently traded for five cases of Ramen noodles, twenty-four e-cig refills, and an urgently needed flea dip.

The man is a walking shambles, barely differentiated from the hobos he hunts for food, and in desperate danger of being mistaken for prey.

If you're going to shop on Amazon anyway, please do it from here, and know that you are helping out a guy who looks like a giant talking woodchuck.

OH - and who also writes things that inform you and make you laugh. Either/Or. I think the woodchuck thing is cooler, but YMMV.

UPDATE TO THE UPDATE [DiT]: Hookers and blow don't grow on trees.

As far as I know.

UPDATE TO THE UPDATE UPDATE [rdbrewer]: I see in comments some are suggesting turning off adblock and allowing all blocked items on the page. Not necessary. If you have Firefox, click on the little red stop sign shaped button at the lower left in the Firefox frame. Click on "open blockable items" in the box that comes up. Find the two or three Amazon widget items. Right click on them one by one and hit "disable filter" in the box that comes up. That way you don't have to disable adblock for everything on the page.


Open thread in the comments.


Enter your product search in the text box in the top part of the Amazon thing below and press "Go". Selecting the item will take you to Amazon's site in a separate window.

Note: If you use Adblock, it needs to be disabled for this to work. (Thanks to GnuBreed in the comments)
