Friday fun: Review poetry  
With a hat-tip to lyrstzha for the link: A very creative Amazon review. A sample to entice you:
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.'
Seriously, though, check out the whole thing. Quite impressive.

ETA: Heck, check out the other reviews. Some bizarrely entertaining riffs in there. And violetcheetah points out the "also viewed" and "purchased" samples are quite eclectic, as are the purchase options.
Current Mood: amusedamused

Some of the other reviews are also amusing. Little short stories about the milk.

Yeah, that entry really brought out the creativity. Hee.

Oh, I've forgotten about the Amazon lol-viewers so I had to re-read a few different ones and try not to attract any attention laughing.

I had only run across one or two before. I should pay better attention. It's a pretty neat modern art form, really.

That is simply STUPENDOUS. Thanks so much for linking it! And there's so much creativity going on in the other reviews too....

I know! It's crazy over there. But crazy fun, so it's okay. Heh.

It's delightful and surprising where you can find creativity, isn't it? I really must remember to link to a couple of the other really good product reviews.

I am in awe of the outlets people find — and the care put into some of them. (Which I really shouldn't be, since I get the same agog reaction from people surprised to learn about the work many fanfiction writers put into their craft ... but I suppose there's always going to be some new corner to explore.)

And I meant to comment over at your post, too, but I dropped the ball — so thank you for the fun link!
