Why I gave up Wikiphilia for my new web pastime, “Rabbit Wholing”. How ELSE would I learn that folks that buy banana bunkers also buy 55 gallon drums of body lube?


Priced at $2,750, it’s not surprising that
no-one has reviewed the Jurassic-Sized
Parasaurolopus Patio Statue yet.
Why not be the first?

Remember when Wikipedia was new, how we’d start out reading about the history of head-driven phrase structure grammar, and before you know it, two hours had passed and we’d find ourself reading the bio of Greg Evigan, star of BJ & the Bear? Well, now that we’ve absorbed the entire sum of human knowledge, the guilty pleasure of Wikiphilia just isn’t as guilt or pleasure inducing as it used to be, is it. That’s how I stumbled upon my new favorite pastime, “Rabbit Wholing”, which involves browsing only the customer reviews and “Customers Who Viewed This Item Also Viewed” items on Amazon. The name comes from one of the more popular items on the many “funniest Amazon review” lists you’ll find on the web, the Fresh Whole Rabbit. Intentionally plunging down the rabbit hole of Amazon’s recommended products may seem like an exercise in futility, but how else would I learn that people who bought the Hutzler 571 Banana Slicer and the Compact Impact Banana Bunker also bought the 55 Gallon Passion Natural Water-Based Lubricant? Not with a Consumer Reports subscription or by wasting hours and hours on Wikipedia, that’s for sure! Below are my picks for most amusing and informative customer reviews. Screenshots are provided in case the product gets discontinued or the review gets censored.
