And here's the kicker...
So, I go to Amazon.com to preorder the "Aristocrats" DVD.

Man, that sounds like the setup to a joke. Perhaps a belabored, filthy joke. But it's not. Not today, anyway.

Here's a question for you all: let's say you go to the theatre to watch a movie. Let's say you walk out 15 minutes into the movie. Would you feel qualified to review that movie?

It was actually your review that got me to go see The Aristocrats.

Why would somebody spend more time reviewing the movie than watching the movie, if they didn't spend any time researching the movie to begin with?

Why would someone write a review when that review would only be read by people who were doing more preparation for seeing the movie than the reviewer invested? Doesn't that set off the "eminently unqualified" alarm?

Guh.
