Inspired by NYT Tesla test, here are my consumer trials of some products (humor)

    Example review:

    "
    Pencil: I was led to believe great things about this pencil, but it wouldn’t write on the page. Bit large chunks off the end in frustration but still unable to create writable tip. No sharpener was included, and I don’t think it would occur to the average consumer to use one, given the basic fact that It Is No Longer 1950. If you are using a pen now, don’t stop and switch to pencils. You will get nothing but grief, and all your notes will be blank pages. Eraser worked satisfactorily."

    Wow- this whole John Broder thing is starting to become an internet meme. Now someone just needs to come up with a good visual representation and we'll give that grumpy cat a run for its money . . .

    I've posted these elsewhere, but this thread seems to need record of them as well.

    Fun! So far our panel of judges (me) votes Rolo's "gets pulled over for doing 60" the funniest. YMMV.
