Real Ultimate Power: The Official Ninja Book

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/080652569X

The reviews of this on Amazon are hilarious! It starts innocently enough with:

This book is genius: and by genius, I mean totally sweet.
Which was followed by

He chopped his face up with some sort of awesome ninja weapon (I couldn't see what it was because he was so fast). Then, he pulled out his guitar and wailed to the screams of terrified onlookers. When the cops showed up, the ninja rode away on hippo, 'cause everyone knows that ninjas and hippos are blood brothers. Everyone should buy this book because it's so sweet. And by sweet I mean totally rad. After reading this masterpiece, I totally flipped out and punched this guy in the face. He got all irratated with me and threatened to call the cops (wuss). But he had another thing coming, 'cause after reading Real Ultimate Power, I had become a full fledged ninja. You too can become a ninja, just pay close attention to this book and you'll be flipping out in no time.
Which prompted the author to jump in with:

I bet a lot of you have never even seen a girl naked! You idiots believe that ninjas had some "code of honor." Yeah right! If by "code of honor," you mean "code to flip out and go nuts for absolutely no reason at all even if it means that people might think you are totally insane or sweet," then you are right. But if you mean a "code to be nice and speak nicely while sharing and not cutting off heads," then youíre the biggest idiot ever!!!!!! So if you have any brains, you will shut up and get a life. So go shut up, you stupid idiot.

I'm tired of ninja, pirate and robot jokes where the punchline is that they are a ninja, pirate or robot.

This guy is not funny.
