A Humorous Amazon Product Review

Amazon LogoThe other day, a buddy of mine pointed me to an Amazon product, asking if I wanted a good laugh. I wasn’t in a particularly good mood, but I humored him and let him point me to this item for sale on Amazon. I mean seriously, how funny can a product for sale really be? Oh, I was wrong.

It wasn’t so much the product as it was the comments/reviews for the product that cracked me up.

The product is the Defense Technology 56895 MK-9 Stream pepper spray. At first I was thinking, yea, so? Wondering what my friend was up to when he pointed me to this page. But then he indicated that I should look at the reviews.

The first comment starts out with

“Whenever I need to breezily inflict discipline on unruly citizens” and I got a bit of a snicker. The review goes on to say that “When I reach for my can of … Pepper Spray, I know that even the mighty First Amendment doesn’t stand a chance against its many scovil units of civil rights suppression.”

The next comment said they used the pepper spray to disburse non-violent campers, and it worked. But they multiplied the next day.

Another comment called it the “Cadillac of citizen repression technology.”

“works well on students and protesters.”

“Blue Band Pepper Spray is the perfect glossy finish for the 99.9%’s CAKE.”

4 out of 5 stars because it was too spicy…

emptied the dining table, dining room, and the house

“When you absolutely, positively have to spray everyone in the room or a large outdoor area look no further”

And my favorite of the bunch, in light of the injured shoppers from Black Friday,

having to deal with the unruly crowds at Walmart for the day after Thanksgiving sales has become a breeze.”

I didn’t realize that Amazon let humorous reviews stay with a product, but sure enough, these have been up there for a few days and they are pretty funny… at least they appeal to my specific brand or sense of humor.

I don’t condone the use of pepper spray for jokes or what not, but I do represent slapstick kind of humor category, which these comments seem to fall into. Hope you enjoy and remember, Pepper Spray is not a toy!
