I've only read one so far but definitely entertaining!

At first I thought it was for the movie Milk that is coming out soon!

This product copiously leaks out of my nose whenever I read these reviews.

:) :) :p :D

They are priceless, but I wonder who these folks are doing it - let alone going back and voting on the other reviews.
In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
A stately dairy-house decree:
Where Alf, the sacred river, ran
Through caverns measureless to man,
Down to a sunless sea.
So twice five miles of fertile ground
the sacred cows wandered and fed,
And there were gardens bright with soft young grass,
Where blossomed many a pound of fresh-churned butter;
And casein scents filled the air,
Engorging the nostrils of naughty milk-maids.

A damsel with a dulcimer
In a vision once I saw:
It was an Abyssinian milk-maid,
And on her dulcimer she played,
Singing of Cottage Cheese.
Could I revive within me
Her symphony and song,
To such a deep delight 'twould win me,
That with music loud and long,
I would build that dairy in air,
That sunny dome! those cows of wonder!
And all who heard should see them there,
And all should cry, Moo! Moooo!
Her flashing eyes, her swinging udder!
Weave a circle round her thrice,
And squeeze the teats with care,
For she on sweet grass hath fed,
And produced the Tuscan Whole Milk, 1 Gallon,
128 fl oz, of Paradise.

-- Samuel Taylor Coleridge, 1816

The few I read are brilliant. Gotta bookmark that page and get sucked in time like Misfit. I even started reading the comments for Catherine Swinford's review. Sweet!

How'd you find it, Misfit?

Have you seen the products at the side too - the duct tape? The Badonkadonk land cruiser? The Northern Industrial Concrete Vibrator?
Golly!

I clicked on the product page and noticed that people who bought Tuscan Whole Milk had also bought MomSpit. I had to check that out! Yep. It's real and you can buy it.

Make sure to go back far enough to read the one that spoof Edgar Allen Poe's Raven. ROFL. Some of these guys are quite creative. :) :o

I saw the land cruiser but I missed the vibrator. There's a whole other murky world at Amazon that most of us bookaholics don't see, plus some reall off the wall folks who like to have fun writing reviews on them.
