    Funny Amazon stuff

    Postby othaderak » 22 Sep 2009 15:35

    http://www.amazon.com/Tuscan-Whole-Milk ... roduct_top

    This one has some awesome comments, but this is the best one I think I've ever seen on the whole site.

    Edgar in Baltimore wrote:Once upon a mid-day sunny, while I savored Nuts 'N Honey,
    With my Tuscan Whole Milk, 1 gal, 128 fl. oz., I swore
    As I went on with my lapping, suddenly there came a tapping,
    As of some one gently rapping, rapping at the icebox door.
    'Bad condensor, that,' I muttered, 'vibrating the icebox door -
    Only this, and nothing more.'

    Not to sound like a complainer, but, in an inept half-gainer,
    I provoked my bowl to tip and spill its contents on the floor.
    Stupefied, I came to muddle over that increasing puddle,
    Burgeoning deluge of that which I at present do adore -
    Snowy Tuscan wholesomeness exclusively produced offshore -
    Purg'ed here for evermore.

    And the pool so white and silky, filled me with a sense of milky
    Ardor of the type fantastic of a loss not known before,
    So that now, to still the throbbing of my heart, while gently sobbing,
    I retreated, heading straightway for the tempting icebox door -
    Heedless of that pitter-patter tapping at the icebox door -
    I resolved to have some more.

    Presently my soul grew stronger; hesitating then no longer,
    'This,' said I, 'requires an extra dram of milk, my favorite pour.'
    To the icebox I aspired, motivated to admire
    How its avocado pigment complemented my decor.
    Then I grasped its woodgrain handle - here I opened wide the door; -
    Darkness there, and nothing more.

    Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing,
    Doubting, dreaming dreams of Tuscans I had known before
    But the light inside was broken, and the darkness gave no token,
    And the only words there spoken were my whispered words, 'No more!'
    Coke and beer, some ketchup I set eyes on, and an apple core -
    Merely this and nothing more.

    Back toward the table turning, all my soul within me burning,
    Soon again I heard a tapping somewhat louder than before.
    'Surely,' said I, 'surely that is something at my window lattice;
    Let me see then, what thereat is, and this mystery explore -
    Let my heart be still a moment and this mystery explore; -
    'Tis the wind and nothing more!'

    From the window came a stirring, then, with an incessant purring,
    Inside stepped a kitten; mannerlessly did she me ignore.
    Not the least obeisance made she; not a minute stopped or stayed she;
    But, with mien of lord or lady, withdrew to my dining floor -
    Pounced upon the pool of Tuscan spreading o'er my dining floor -
    Licked, and lapped, and supped some more.

    Then this tiny cat beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
    By the grand enthusiasm of the countenance she wore,
    Toward the mess she showed no pity, 'til I said, 'Well, hello, kitty!'
    Sought she me with pretty eyes that seemed to open some rapport.
    So I pleaded, 'Tell me, tell me what it is that you implore!'
    Quoth the kitten, 'Get some more.'

    I found this particularly amusing (granted it's from eBay not amazon, but the concept is similar enough that I thought it belonged in this thread), but can't post it directly to the forum because of the super-huge image size:

    Brian Conway has recently been inspired by the protests in the Middle East...

    Think what you like. It is just a continuation of the of your (collectively) policy of dehumanizing anyone who expresses a favorable view for any books written by KJH. This is not unlike the methodology employed by extremist groups world wide who lack the ability to accept that others may share a different viewpoint.

    Really? Hadn't seen that yet.

    Yeah, Pestie likes to try to elevate things to a grand struggle about human rights and freedom and liberty.

    But, hey, I feel no qualms whatsoever in dehamunizing...I mean, dehumanizing a pig coward like him. :lol:

    Wrap dat piggie up in a blankey!
    I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

    I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

    I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA
