Amazon Has Dispatched The Queen

February 8, 2008

Here’s an amusing little snippet which I came across while checking my Gmail inbox earlier this week:


Subject: The Queen has been dispatched

Yikes! Has all the power finally gone to Jeff Bezos‘ head?

“Dear lostmoya,

We’ve dispatched The Queen. You can expect to receive it in 1-2 business days…”

Oh ho ho, I see what you’ve done there, because this is all about Stephen Frears’ excellent film starring Helen Mirren and Michael Sheen. Disappointingly, what actually dropped on my door mat three days later was the Amazon DVD rental envelope, and not a severed monarch’s head…

At least the film was good.
