Amazon.com’s wanna-be comedians

Amazon.com’s online grocery shop allows for user reviews of its products, and nearly 500 people with too much time on their hands have written up Tuscan whole milk. Most of them are completely silly, and not all of them are safe for work. Excerpts below. (From Boing Boing)

“The milk is very crisp and smooth in the mouth, with modest sweetness and a dab of cheese flavouring; pleasantly sour aftertaste. Ideally served chilled with grains and pastry.”

“I give this Tuscan Milk four stars simply because I found the consistency a little too ‘milk-like’ for my tastes. Try the Old Chad’s Milk from Tasmania for a real milk experience.”

“I washed my car with this product and it really looks great, but it has a terrible smell and everyone thinks I left some cheese in the trunk.”

“Has anyone else tried pouring this stuff over dry cereal? A-W-E-S-O-M-E!”
