"Peel session"
Bad taste it may be, but one of Amazon's 'perfect partner' recommendations just provided me with a great new euphemism.

Do you ken John Peel in his coat so gay?

LOL. I knew those little pixies at Amazon were rather warped but that's verging on brilliant. I suspect he'd approve (in a grumpy way), anyway.

That book is claimed to be by "Dick Palmer".

Ho ho.

I once ordered a Netgear router and it said "People who bought [Netgear Router] also are interested in buying: [Blue Terrycloth Bathrobe]."

First thought:

huh?

Second thought:

but wait, I actually need a bathrobe. and blue is my favorite color.

Third thought:

wow, these guys are good.

The one I really liked, when they got this first up and running, was that every time I went there looking for ISBNs and things I would get a "People who bought [ book X ] AND wear clothes were also interested in: cheetah-print slippers." It seemed not to matter what book X was, it was always with the cheetah-print slippers. I can imagine few things I would want less, though come to think of it, my counting in the "people who wear clothes" demographic is under some protest. But then again, I doubt there's all that large a market sector who don't.
