back to article Amazon punts anal beads to UK kiddies

We're very much obliged to reader Phillip Young for alerting us that Amazon UK is peddling anal sex toys to any wide-eyed kiddie looking to strap on a Spiderman watch: Amazon screen grab showing anal beads in search results for "spiderman watch" What's even more repulsive than the fact that a highly reputable etailer seems …

    Review

    From the "Review" section of the product page...

    "This quality kids timepiece is made from the highest quality materials, to deal with all the ruff and tumble that kids can throw at it. Also enabling kids to learn the time, a good all round gift."

    A little digging

    If you do a bit of surfing around you might come across (no pun intended) their 'Extra Strong Waterproof Vibrator' the need for which I am at a loss to explain until you go down a little further to the 'Customers viewing this page may be interested in the following sponsored links' the first one asks: 'Wet Basement?'

    It stands to reason that you would need a waterproof vibrator if you had a wet basement. I wonder if Paris Hilton suffers from that problem.

    My Grandad had a watch like that!

    His father bought it in a little general store in Knoxville, Tennessee. He wore it everyday during the first world war and bequeathed it to my father. My father wore it in WWII. He was shot down over Hanoi and put in a Vietnamese prison camp. He looked at that watch as my birthright and knew it would be confiscated so he hid it in the one place he knew he could hide something....I'll get me coat!

    - A nice gift to your moter!

    "- A nice gift to your mother! She'll just love it!". That's what the text should read.

    Is it just me....

    Ok..

    i admit it, i bought them. But i'm sending them back sharpish, as not only do they not tell the time, they look nothing like Spiderman.

    fumbled rectification..........

    It would appear they have attempted to rectify* the situation - the name is gone and the product unavailable, but the photo is still there?!

    Does anyone know if amazon actually has an adult section at all? I'm not about to check at work!

    B.T.W. I thought the "comment icons" were pretty pointless at first but it appears they can be quite appropriate at times.

    * pffffft

    gets weirder...

    Clicking on the link now takes you to a selection of spiderman watches, and... a 12 pack of Madonna Condoms, for £303.19. For that price, do you get Madonna with them?

    For those looking for another IT link -

    Clicking on the link for the condoms and then going down (sorry) to the line: "Customers viewing this page may be interested in these Sponsored Links" finds a spyware-prevention site selling "5 Trojan removers". A little fine tuning of search categories needed, perhaps?
