The internet is for porn/beef

…I just got an e-mail from Amazon with the subject line, “Slim Jim Products Now Available at Amazon.com.”

Maybe it’s not what I think it is, I thought. Then I read the beginning:

Dear Amazon.com Customer,

Since you have purchased extreme sports gear or beef snacks in the past, we thought you might like to know that Slim Jim, Original, Case of 12 15-Ounce Canisters is now available for ordering.

First of all, I never ordered “extreme sports gear or beef snacks” (extreme sports gear or beef snacks??!) from Amazon. Second of all…well, Jesus. They’re trying to sell me eleven pounds of beef on the internet. (Also, note that the beef is listed under “Health and Personal Care.”)

They know I like Adult Swim cartoons, modern indie music, and the works of Beckett and Virginia Woolf…but when it comes to snacks, they know nothing about me.
