You missed it! But Today's Woot is waiting!

3TB USB (Three Ton Bison Using Storied Big-rig)

It's a misty dawn on the lonely highways of the plains of Wyoming.

A solitary rig pulls into the roadside truck stop and kills its lights. The driver side door swings open and a single bison, clad in fleece-lined denim and a mesh cap that reads "These colors don't run!" trots out.

A bell rings in the cafe as the bison bellies up to the counter. A water buffalo in a blue gingham smock approaches, a pad of paper and pencil clenched in her hooves. 

"Mmmmmmnneeerf?" she asks.

The bison snorts below the brim of his cap, not bothering to look up.

Coffee it is. She retreats to the percolator.

It can be an isolated life for a plain-dwelling bovine. But it is the life he's chosen.

The coffee is hot, but bitter.
