Who Knew Amazon Was An Absurdist Publication?

I like hanging around on Amazon, perusing the numerous objects of necessity-filling that I had not known previously existed, but who knew that the reviews themselves could be hilarious? Take milk. At first glance, you might think, “Sure I could review milk. It might taste good or bad or creamy or not,” et cetera. But then, you would not be taking full advantage of the potential absurdity available to reviews of milk—or the ridiculous uses of said milk! Me, personally, I started with the 1 star reviews of milk, because bad reviews are funnier. Nonetheless, there are gems throughout.
