The Awesomeness of Amazon Part 4: 


(The Awesomeness of Amazon Parts 1-3 here.)

PS.  I’ve added Comment Luv to The Bloggess.  If it works correctly then bloggers who leave a comment will have their latest post linked here.  I don’t know how it works exactly but I suspect it’s some sort of voodoo magic.  Tell me if you hate it.

PPS.  MamaDramaConQueso II is this Saturday.  Still time to get a sitter and/or post bail.

  1. I don’t know. I was actually there buying one for Hailey so that I could blog for a few hours while she was in the bathtub.

    PS. Um…I’m fairly certain that this review is tongue-in-cheek. I mean, I could be wrong but I’m pretty sure that this guy didn’t accidentally drown his kid with a doggie life preserver. Then again, I could be wrong.

  2. Are ya kidding me? Where do you find these things? Oh, and by the way. Just so you know…be careful when drinking McDonald’s coffee. As the contents may be hot. Oh yeah, and don’t eat the preservative packet in the pocketbooks and shoe boxes. It’s really not salt, people! DUMB, DUMB, and DUMB.

    Tracey’s last blog post..So Long, Farewell…

  3. But it has a handy-dandy handle on the back that’s perfect for lifting the child out of the water when the hypothermia leaves them too weak to climb out by themselves. Damn…

    NotSoSage’s last blog post..Resolutions

  4. How the hell do you find these things on Amazon? The horse head was the best though. I’ll have to check out that commentluv. Maybe it will relive my guilt about not commenting enough on other blogs.

    Lotta’s last blog post..Visiting Kate

  5. I love that review. But I am wondering why only two out of five people thought the review was helpful. Did the other three find that the life jacket worked great for their babies?

    -R-‘s last blog post..Memories No One Else Has

  6. Hilarious stuff. But I now find myself wondering why people need a life preserver for their dog – are they training small and frankly pissed-off looking pugs to crew yachts?

  7. I’m a chronic Amazon surfer. Someone should benefit from my addictions.

    I also have a host of amazing people who send me fabulous, bizarre crap if they see it. In fact, my sister just sent me something that will be going up ASAP because it’s just too good not to share.

  8. That review has to be a joke. It just has to be. There’s no other possibility.

    I saw a dog in a life jacket once. It was funny. I took a picture and posted it on my blog. No way could anyone ever think that thing was for babies.

    Jess’s last blog post..So many boots

  9. Also of note, do not use this on a cat. It will save the cat fine, but cats really, really don’t like being thrown into a pool during a party, no matter how funny drunk Jack thinks it is.

  10. I agree with Biddy, I think I’m allergic to stupid people too!

    Who in the hell would be that much of an idiot and why weren’t they sterilized before they hit puberty?

    SassyPants’s last blog post..Too hot to handle

  11. You know who else you should never put a life preserver on? Dogs. Give the little guy some dignity, will ya? Any self-respecting K9 would prefer to be dressed in a clever costume, such as some sort of elephant getup, than wear a life preserver.

    Hello! Where do you think the term “doggy paddle” came from??

  12. By the way, the stinkin’ CommentLuv thing doesn’t like me. My blog is “too obscure” for the likes of it or Technorati. Buncha snobs! Chron blogs need luv too!

  13. Tardy to the party, as usual, but I have to pop my head in to say…


    That is all.

    ali’s last blog post..Mundane Update

  14. Can’t stop laughing. I don’t know what is more funny…the review or the look on my husband’s face when I go and buy one of those preservers to put on my dog, when we go to the lake.


    Redneck Mommy’s last blog post..Letter to My Dog

  15. Haw! That truly is funny.
    And it’s gotta be a spoof, otherwise … well, otherwise *something*, I don’t know what. But *otherwise*, anyway.

    Melanie’s last blog post..Huh-LOW-huh

  16. bhahaha! I’m sure it is a joke but if not, it just supports the theory of “some people should not breed”….

    See ya Saturday!!!

    Erica’s last blog post..Tomorrow!

  17. funny reviewer!
    but don’t hate on the doggie life jackets. they’re good for kayaking pooches like mine who might get into a bit of whitewater when they insist on swan diving off the boat and paddling for the joy of it.

    last blog post=distracting and unrelated. blog link better.

  18. OMG. This is why everything comes with stupid warning labels, right there. labels like “beverage may be hot” and “sleeping pills may cause drowsiness.” Gah.

    kittenpie’s last blog post..Again. Gah!

  19. Either she didn’t read the product manual or an emergency situation occurred where her pet has a life-saver kit while her baby doesn’t have one. If pets has all these items, we should also have more complex and useful gadgets for our babies. Like a baby monitor for that matter.

  20. Ah, Amazon is the alternative to Wikipedia for frustrated writers.

    Reminds me of the old biddies who sued the camper-van company when their ‘cruise control’ failed and they crashed. Turns out it’s *not* ok to click cruise control, leave the wheel and go in the back to have a cup of tea… thank goodness it’s now on the disclaimer!
