An Amazon Review

31 January 2016

Nothing to do with books, but PG received the following review that was written for a men’s suit offered on Amazon:

Greetings fellow amazonians, just bought this suit a few weeks ago and it helped me out big time. You see one reason I haven’t been able to give as many reviews over the past few years is because I was in jail. The only access I had to the internet was in the prison library, but I was not able to go often because I was not labeled a “good” prisoner. I had a parole meeting scheduled a few weeks back and I wanted to look good so I bought this suit. I had it delivered to one of the COs houses that owed me a favor and he snuck it in for me. I put it on and my cellie Big Todd was really impressed. I went to the meeting and to my shock I was not supposed to dress up for it. They wanted me to show up in that ugly orange jumpsuit for some reason. I decided to tell the parole board the whole story as to how I got the suit and some other lurid details of what went on while I was behind bars. The entire time though I noticed that the board members were not really listening to me, but admiring this suit. After about an hour of me spilling my guts about spilling guts I finished and waited for the board members to respond. It was like they were under a spell or something, but just then they awoke and voted on letting me out. I couldn’t believe it I was out and free to join my carnival again thanks to this suit and amazon.

  1. I’m not sure, but I think we need to run this review through Fakespot. It might not be authentic.

  2. Love it. 🙂

  3. Funny fake reviews seem to almost be a cottage industry on Amazon. My favorite one being the reviews for How to Land a Top-Paying Pierogi makers Job: Your Complete Guide to Opportunities. Or they would be if I could find a decent pierogi around here. :\

  4. Thanks for the laugh, PG.

  5. I read somewhere the old helmsman from the original Star Trek likes to make funny reviews.

    But nothing (I hope) will top the reviews on that five-pound bag of sugar-free gummy bears!

  6. So far as I know, the Funny Reviews on Amazon thing started about ten years ago with Tuscan Whole Milk. Someone posted a funny review, and other people ran with it, and it just kept going. The current top review is someone who parodied Poe’s “The Raven” as a Tuscan Whole Milk review. 🙂

    Looks like this guy’s written a fair number of reviews.

  8. Well that successfully wasted 30 minutes. Maybe we should review PG’s blog??

    [The Poe parody was timeless!]

  9. Still my favorite

    For Uranium Ore:

    “I purchased this product 4.47 Billion Years ago and when I opened it today, it was half empty.”
