Every morning I wake up to at least one email from Amazon, whether it be recommendations of new mystery novels (because those are what I get my dad for his birthday every year) or the “Top Ten Deals in Electronics” (because sometimes I buy electronics). And almost every morning I think that I should adjust my preferences to discontinue this communication, but I can’t do it, because I’m under the belief that something worthwhile will come along one day.
And I thought today was that day.
Logged into Gmail and saw an email from Amazon with the following subject:
Now available: “The Adventures of Pumpkin Pete” on DVD at Amazon.com
So, naturally, my first thought was “a new Pete & Pete” DVD? Great!” But while I did recall an excellent Halloween episode of Pete & Pete, I didn’t think it was called “Pumpkin Pete.” But what else could it be? I mean I’ve ordered Pete & Pete DVDs from Amazon three times (had to reorder the second season after I lost my original copy), so they know I like it, and, let’s be honest, if Amazon was a person I’d probably trust him (or her) with my life.
But I was wrong.
This is what they thought I’d be interested in:
Sorry, Amazon, wrong Pete. I don’t know what to think of you anymore.
But I did go ahead and order Pumpkin Pete anyway. Needed another item to receive Super Saver Shipping.

Wow, subtle giant green penis.
