Got Snakes? [06 Aug 2006|12:11pm]

I've been reading and enjoying the reviews of milk on Amazon and wondering what this says about the Amazon review process. I wonder at what point they will draw the line. Obviously these are harmless and hilarious, but if this same deluge were on, say, some consumer electronics product, it would ruin the value of the real reviews. I don't think Amazon's simple rate-the-reviews system can prevent this possibility. Sure, reviews of a serious product could not be funny in the same way as reviews of something unreviewable like milk are, but they could still be funny.

Anyway, the screenshot shows the other products that Amazon thought I might like.
