I thought this was a book about birth control and Jesus, but it appears to be written in FORTRAN.


Never mind the book, read the reviews

And what customers also viewed ... even as a joke ... defies belief [1]


WARNING: I actually strained my back, I laughed so hard - This bit is NOT a joke!

[1] You mean those books have actually been written!?

Oh you add petulance to your misdemeanors; I am just one of the people that stick around for a bit of fun and frolics and they asked me to be a mod, go figure Wink

It's uncanny, you know, how this made me think of you the instant I saw it [1]

[1] Well, okay, I admit that I only found it by googling why nerds have no friends [2], but you get the point

[2] It's uncanny, you know, how this made me think of doing so

Oh, NO! - You said Trekker

No-one will take you seriously if you use the correct term - You've got to say Trekkie, like everyone else, if you don't want them to realise you're one

Seriously, you should edit your review and get it wrong - Quickly, before anyone notices!

At least you're not saying "T'Pow!" like some b****rd offspring of ST and Batman Wink


EDIT

Oh, come, now! - This is Political Correctness gone mad!

I originally used the real word, only for it to be automatically converted to ****

There are occasions on which the use of b****rd is NOT offensive, but actually correct English

What next? - People from S****horpe not being allowed to register?

AND, they could at least replace like for like - Changing b****rd into **** makes it look like I used a far worse term in the first place ... and that's hardly fair, is it?

That sounds reasonable. And not just for the name of the town. Laughing

Amazon product reviews are a great source of entertainment, but you do wonder if some of the products really exist, or they've just been added for a laugh: http://tinyurl.com/392bpzp
