This is what online reviews are for. One man's quest to share his faith through Amazon product reviews. Good for a giggle. As a Christian, I will buy everything he likes. Because of Jesus. Via the ever-vigilant Mrs. Tool.

Also, I just watched Oldboy last night, and that movie is fucking brilliant. You know, as a Christian.

  • As a Christian, which I am not, I think this man is a genius.
  • I tend to think it is a comedy routine rather than real sentiments. Beginning each and every review with "As a Christian" is a wee bit strange. If it was my goal to influence other's thinking, I don't think that would be my lead off phrase. Entertaining either way however. I did find a review by Mr. Hurley which does not begin with that phrase.
  • WHAT?!?!?!
  • This is interesting on multiple levels. There clearly is (at least one) person named Noel Hurley of London. Whether the Amazon reviews were actually written THE Noel Hurley is debatable. It would be quite evil if one adopted someone else's real name and then posted things that attributed nasty, wacko, or even illegal opinions to that person's name/city. When future employer's Googled them, it might not be funny to the applicant.
  • I love unintentional self-satire.
  • mr hurley is very talented. what's with this 'amazon friends and favorites'?
  • ...when Margaret is out walking Geoffrey... hmmmmm...sounds suspiciously like mil millington to me...
  • Mil Millington is my other hero.
  • I saw a sign today for a lawyer's office. I'll change his first and middle name to protect the innocent (until proven guilty). The sign said, "John James Christian Attorney." It took me a while to figure out that there was a comma missing, and he was John James Christian, Attorney, and not John James, Christian Attorney. That would be a legal drama on the PAX network.
  • Along these lines, I present a real-life Indie Rock Pete, and his musical tastes. Yes, one star for everything, except A Chipmunks Christmas (those guys never sold out!) and something called Fungus Amongus. (?)
  • Reminds me of the lawyer in Thompson's "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," who begins nearly everything he says: "As your attorney, I advise you to..."
