Earlier today I was checking Amazon and adding various things to my Wishlist (yes, I've linked it so if anyone wants to buy me something pretty..) and found myself caught rather off-guard by the 'People who bought this..' feature.
Apparently there's some kind of weird link between scatalogical humour and a sociopathic desire to commit genocide. Turns out that that people who bought Superbad: The Drawings (which yes, is a book of dick drawings inspired by the film. If you haven't seen it, this will not make sense to you. Consider yourself lucky) also bought Mein Kampf?
What the Fuck? Why do I need to know this, Amazon?
|Look. I'm not even kidding. And it's the Uncensored version?
Really #amazon? I'm disturbed to know that people who bought "Superbad: The Drawings" also bought "Mein Kampf"? #WTFFThe reason I didn't screen shot the actual tweet itself is that it has disappeared. Folks, this is why programs that scan for 'questionable' words or phrases are bullshit. Crawlers cannot account for context. Someone who mentions Mein Kampf in a Tweet may not actually be trying to spread Nazi propaganda.. some of us are just trying to express a little bit of disbelief at this world.
I'm probably on some kind of government watch list now. FANTASTIC.
