Dropped into Amazon for a quick look and
this came up in my recommendations! WTF? Are they having a laff?

MrsSnaplegs Wed 18-Aug-10 21:47:44

Well I'm not getting it as it's not on Amazon Prime and I'm not covering the postage on thatgrin

TheCrackFox Wed 18-Aug-10 21:50:43

I would like to live in your world starrychime. grin

I love the idea of a "crouching tiger heavy rain scenario" in the description.
That happens loads in our veg patch....

Oooh, someone's added a review - was it one of you lot?

It must be time to resurrect the Paul Ross Canvas...

Habbibu Wed 18-Aug-10 22:11:23

Ooh, yes - in fact, why can't you camouflage your elephant as Paul Ross...

TheCrackFox Wed 18-Aug-10 22:12:23

Oh, please do not resurrect Paul Ross - I lost an entire afternoon on that one. grin

You scarcely need a product to do that, though. Obviously. Shirt, jacket, you're done. Possibly a wig if you want it to pass close examination.

Shaz10 Wed 18-Aug-10 22:13:50

Professor, do you mean like this one?

starrychime Wed 18-Aug-10 22:14:10

Uh oh, now you are all probably going to be getting loads of wierd 'Based on your browsing history we think you might be interested in...' items!

I think there's a mistake, Shaz -- you seem to have linked me to another picture of Paul Ross there?

"people who bought Walkers Roast Chicken Crisps also bought 'Puccini, Definitive Collection'"


starrychime Wed 18-Aug-10 22:35:21

I prefer Pickled Onion with my Puccini, yum!

"customers who viewed this also viewed" this penis pump.

The mind <ahem> boggles....

BuzzingNoise Thu 19-Aug-10 14:56:12

I've been looking for one of those.

BuzzingNoise Thu 19-Aug-10 14:57:33

I mean the elephant thing, not the penis pump!

Miggsie Thu 19-Aug-10 14:59:57

I have noticed that the recommendations I have had lately have been mank...really not the slightest bit interesting for me.

I like medieval history, I buy loads of books, they should have twigged that by now, so when I bought a camera the immediate recommendation was: a book of naked women with shaven pubes.
