Funny. More or less → Sometimes I don't know whether to laugh or to cry.

It's a joke Q ;) Ever since the wolf-howling-at-moon t-shirt reviews, these have become quite popular.

Are these from Amazon or Ebay or some site like that? (I don't shop online) - they're funny but the context escapes me

edit: oh i see, amazon - i clicked the source link and it took me to the source. Who woulda thunk it?

I sent 'Go The F*ck To Sleep' to my brother who's wife had twins 6 months ago. It cracked them up. My evil step-mother thought it was horrendous and rang me up just to tell me so. It made my day knowing I'd offended her :D .

Btw Quatermass, you remember Noni Hazelhurst? Actor and past playschool presenter here in Australia ( for you, non-Aussies). I saw her reading it on youtube. Very funny.

Well, if anyone wants to look at humorous reviews, why not try Yahtzee Croshaw's Zero Punctuation series? He's noted for his acerbic attitude to many of the games he reviews.

Warning: NSFW for language and cartoonish violence and sexual references...

Here's one of his reviews, of the game Dead Space...



...another of BioShock...



...and here's a more animated remake of one of his more positive reviews, of Painkiller...

I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.
