Amazon.com Oddities

December 16th, 2009

So as you may know, I have been working at Amazon.com packing all of your Christmas goodies in to boxes. Here are a couple of items that I have run across and had to do a double take on. Clicking on the images will take you to the item’s order/review page on amazon.com.

This poor guy got all beat up by the machinery and had to be replaced before I could send it off to its loving new home. I threw the mangled one in to the “damaged tote” in the center of an aisle I share with 8 or so others. It was pretty amusing watching people notice it there, pick it up, and either cringe or crack up. The Avenging Narwhal Playset (with 4 magical horns and 3 adorable animals to impale)

The Avenging Narwahal wasn’t packed alone. He had the following to keep him company and give him tasty treats:

I really should have been in bed two hours ago, so I will only include one more. Another action figure by the same company: The Marie Antoinette Action Figure (with removable head, wig and gown)

Apparently these are part of a much larger set that include Crazy Cat Lady Action Figure (comes with 6 cats!), the Deluxe Librarian Action Figure (with realistic “shushing action”), and many more. Collect them all!

  1. Wow… haven’t seen those come down the line in Kansas yet 🙂 Seeing the weird stuff people order is one of the amusing parts of the job. Our favorite yet is the Bill Clinton Corkscrew. Which is just all sorts of wrong.

      It certainly spices the job up. I haven’t seen the Clinton corkscrew in person, yet. Just on the website.

      The other day, during “morning” stand up, the PA said “And remember, no dirty books!” He was reminding us to use our erasers to clean smudges off, but all I could think was “If you don’t want dirty books, you might want to tell your customers, not us.”

    Thank you for that very funny post. I might just catch the holiday spirit yet.

    Cheers!

      I’m happy that I could send some good will and cheer your way!

      BTW, I really like your graphic designs. They are very original, wild and adorable. Best of luck to you with the clothing line.

      I have a couple caving related designs up on cafepress. I haven’t sold much though :(.
