Oh my! :eek: :o :p That's um... wow.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Can you guess what body part Dian is dissecting next?
Ew. This gets my vote as worst metaphor of the year!

Now that might make an interesting Cheesy Cover Caption contender!

Well that's certainly a banana hammock - as opposed to a smuggled budgie!

Misfit, I bet you got that recommendation because of that rude Robin Hood book you read! Could just imagine someone reading that on a train!

:eek: :D

Hope that's not going to pop up (excuse the pun!) on my Amazon homepage now that I've click on the link. They have a habit of doing that!

Yes, that's the only one I've had a chance to look at. Some how I knew if I went to the Ammy page I'd find at least one humorous review.

PS, the reason this showed up in my feeds was a friend put that book on thislist. Be afraid, be very afraid to see what else is on there.

Well, that just caused the 'spray the keyboard with tea' moment of the morning... The other books were just as, well, ... well. (I was going to say frank, but that would be a ghastly pun.)
