Amazon – The funny reviews it’s worth shopping for.

Ah, the mighty Amazon, that all embracing river of commerce we all dip our retail oar in.

It’s the biggest, it’s the best and it’s the most authoritative when it comes to purchasers feedback.  A clutch of positive or negative reviews on there can make or break a product being sold.

But what happens when the whole purpose of a review is not to make or break that product, rather to make you laugh so hard that you break a rib. When a review is so funny that the only thing the buyer should beware is soiling themselves. When the, um, er…oh sod it, I’ve run out of shopping superlatives but you get the idea.

The thing is, there are certain products that are so familiar or so entirely unremarkable that reviews in the normal sense are superfluous anyway, y’know for stuff like Bic pens, T Shirts, milk, and Katie Price and Peter Andre’s album.

Take the humble Bic pen for instance, what could be more ubiquitous or its use so obvious. I mean nobody needs a review of a Bic pen do they.

Except when they’re this inspired…

Funny Amazon Review

Well, if you take other peoples reviews, you gotta give one back of your own haven’t ya. And I do love my Bic.

So if you want to read more ribaldrous reviews and comedic critiques, and I really urge you that you should, go to this ready-made list of funny Amazon reviews on the Amazon site itself.

Be warned however, with all those aforementioned Bic reviews and similar hilarity for Paul Ross’s and Hitlers portrait (not together of course), a ‘Jesus – He’s my No. 1’ Mug and some total classics about the Original Three Wolf Moon T-Shirts, you will definitely fall into one of two categories.

Either you will have tears running down your trouser leg, or your colostomy bag will explode.

But you will piss yourself.



I have a comment for you, and it’s not even mine.

Bloody hell, I’ve arrived!

Because when the CEO of one of the sites you’ve reviewed writes to thank you for it, you can’t help but feel you’re doing something right.

Oh yes, Mr Steve Purdham who is the top man at We7, has personally come to my Blog to read my enthusiasm for his site and left his own comment to me.


And I don’t know if I’m more excited by the fact it was him or that I’ve had my very first comment.

Now I know how Kate Winslet felt when she picked up her 2 Golden Globes, although I’ve always thought she had a fine pair of them already.

Must have been Bafta’s I was thinking of.

Anyway, to read our little discourse, and all about the fabulous We7 site, you can click on this here link.

In fact the good times really are rolling here.

I’ve had my first comments, my analytics tell me I’ve also had my first referral from a search engine, and yesterday I had 8 people look at my Blog.

Yes a whole 8, it’s the big time now baby.

It can’t be long before I have advertisers clamouring for screenspace and Yahoo and Google fighting over me for ownership.

Fear not though, my impartiality, my integrity, and my mission to scour the best of the web so that you don’t have to, shall remain undiminished* (*Subject to large wads of cash)

And I’d like you to be part of it, because now you’ve seen someone else do it I encourage anyone so inclined to leave a comment of their own, you don’t have to be a high flying executive, and all would be equally appreciated.

I may not create a whole new post about what you write but if Bill Gates ever leaves one defending Internet Explorer I will do the following :-

A) Bring it to your attention.

B) Be crapping myself.
