reddit: now available in kazoo form

By popular demand, reddit kazoos are now available! We heard your thousands, nay, hundreds of calls for an official reddit kazoo. In fact, over the past few months it's become difficult to wade through the reddit feedback mailbox because it looks like this:

We actually got a letter from the president of Google asking us to clean our account out ASAP, because their servers were totally clogged with kazoo mail.

What an amazing and non-fabricated story!

So, (drum roll please) ... reddit kazoos can now be had for just $3.75, shipping included to anywhere in the United States (international shipping is also available; see site for details). You can also save by buying in bulk: for $24.95 you can get a bag of 25. You'd better act fast, though, because who wants to be the last person on their block to have twenty-five reddit kazoos? You can even trick yours out with trumpet horns or a power amp. All this and more is for sale over at the reddit kazoo store.

I for one can think of no better way to celebrate National Kazoo Day, which by the way happens to be today. But of course you already knew that because it's a respected federal holiday that was, if I remember correctly, created by an Act of Congress in the mid-nineteenth century.

TL;DR: bzzzt
