Tongue in cheek reviews found online...
Internet reviews are a great way of praising excellent products or warning of less than great customer service. Sometimes though, as well as being informative, many reviews are also entertaining. Here's a round-up of a few reviews found on Amazon which made me chuckle...
1) What a bargain!
|Unfortunately I don't own an 85" TV so I had to|
make do with this photo of an 18" TV instead.
"This TV is fan freaking tastic!!!! We are now living in the box it came in but even that is roomy and quite comfy!!!!"
Perhaps the first reviewer should have paid attention to the wise words of the following helpful reviewer who travelled back from the future to leave some very useful advice:
"I am coming back from the future to write this review, and to let everyone know you can buy this TV for $699 in 2015. It still looks great though."
I suspect the bit about travelling from the future may actually be made up, but I wouldn't be surprised if the 2015 price turned out to be true.
Apparently though, even the 85" screen size wasn't big enough for this next reviewer:
"The black levels and color depth on this TV are pretty good for the price. However, the small screen size is a deal breaker. I recommend buying an IMAX theater instead."
2) The Greatest Album Of All Time?
|"The most influential contribution to society since the|
invention of the wheel!" Charlotte Fudgemuffin
(Charles' sister) joins the X Factor judges to offer her opinion
on Katie Price's and Peter Andre's musical masterpiece.
"Possibly the most important discovery since penicillin."
Jack Bauer added:
"Could this be the answer for world peace?"
A reviewer known as Sam was another fan who loved their album, and he described it as:
"The 8th Wonder of the World."
3) Not suitable for men
|A formula 1 car ... for her.|
"My husband has never allowed me to write, as he doesn't want me touching men's pens. However when I saw this product, I decided to buy it (using my pocket money) and so far it has been fabulous! Once I had learnt to write, the feminine colour and the grip size (which was more suited to my delicate little hands) has enabled me to vent thoughts about new recipe ideas, sewing and gardening."
The pen is no good for man hands, however, as according to Davey Clayton:
"I bought this pen (in error, evidently) to write my reports of each day's tree felling activities in my job as a lumberjack. It is no good. It slips from between my calloused, gnarly fingers like a gossamer thread gently descending to earth between two giant redwood trunks."
In all seriousness, you can't help but wonder how Bic ever thought there was a need for a pen aimed specifically at women, rather than sticking to unisex pens like all the other ballpoint pens in the world.
