Amazon collects Funniest Reviews
Funniest Reviews: "Helpful product reviews written by Amazon customers are the heart of Amazon.com, and we treasure the customers who work hard to write them. But occasionally customer creativity goes off the charts in the best possible way. Enjoy this collection of some of the funniest, top-voted reviews written by your fellow customers."
How about this one:
How to Avoid Huge Ships by John W. Trimmer
"I read this book before going on vacation and I couldn't find my cruise liner in the port. Vacation ruined." Dan
"It was only after it arrived that I looked closely at the title and realized it said 'How to Avoid Huge SHIPS'. A simple error that means I am still treading on massive examples of canine excrement." Graham Thomas
"Capt. Trimmer's advice would have been immensely beneficial to humans, fish, seabirds, and other animals, but I am none of those things. I'm a big rock." Jamie

Maybe I'm just getting to old to appreciate these, but these are the kinds of reviews I would report as "spam". They're not helpful to readers at all, regardless of their humor.

The OED had some of the funniest, erudite, tongue-in-cheek reviews that I can remember ...

If I'm seriously thinking about buying something, that's not the kind of "review" I want to see. And as someone who does post a lot of reviews on Amazon, I don't want to see it rated higher than mine either.
