If any of you are like me – rabid P.G. Wodehouse fans – I must tell you about the best moronic review of ALL TIME!
I was perusing Amazon to see if they had any free P.G. kindle books I didn’t have, and found some. When I noticed that one I was downloading had a two star rating hanging out with all the 4’s and 5’s, of course I had to read it.
This person should be an honorary Drone – where idiots are de rigeur. He gave the collection of short stories two stars, with the header “flip” (not capitalized), and said: “This writer seems to be more caught up in the turn of a phrase rather than a telling good story.” (sic)
I almost hurt myself when I fell on the floor laughing. When I managed to pull myself back into my chair, I parried with: “This is a joke review, right?” (Not my best work, but I was nursing both bruises and outraged sensibilities.)
Sadly, I’m sure it isn’t. How tragic to have reached an age where one is able to type, yet has no knowledge of Plum. And yet – it IS fair to say that he was mightily “caught up in the turn of a phrase”…I’m still laughing.
