The vast majority of Internet user reviews are there only to amuse us with their stupidity -- but every now and again, someone actually says something clever, only to be quickly buried by another 137 stupid people who are legitimately angry at Pajama Jeans. Now the web lampooners behind Lamebook and SrslySorry are posting user-submitted gold from people hell-bent on taking products, places, and the message board community for a ride, with Uhpinions. Some nuggets:
Amazon Review of Sigma EX DG Ultra-Telephoto Zoom Lens: "The seller should state that this product is NOT designed to be strapped to a cat. Now I have to look elsewhere for a smaller cat-friendly device and a replacement cat. Not to mention all of the hours I have to put into training the new cat for espionage."
Amazon Review of Playmobil Security Checkpoint: "I was a little disappointed when I first bought this item. My 5-year-old son pointed out that the passenger's shoes cannot be removed. Then, we placed a deadly fingernail file underneath the passenger's scarf, and neither the detector doorway nor the security wand picked it up. My son said 'that's the worst security ever!'."
Yelp Review of The Moon: "For all the hype this place gets (fantastic golf courses, cheese to die for, views of the sea, etc.), the service is really inconsistent. It seems like the layout changes every night, and about once a month, it seems like it's not just closed, it's not even THERE."
Because not everybody has a sense of humor, lawyers exist, and Facebook's are currently harassing the site's creators over Lamebook. To raise defense funds, the guys are throwing a bash this Saturday at Shangri-La -- like an Internet without stupid people, a place that only exists in the imagination.
