This weekend, the company revealed how they spent their newfound cash — and unsurprisingly, the result is funny and creative.

Employees ended up splitting the profits and using the money for everything from game consoles, cars, down payments, college tuition, sunglasses, alcohol, mattresses, and many donations to a variety of charities and non-profits — something that the company has done much of in the past.
