Pepper Spray Cop Gets Pop Culture Treatment

The UC Davis pepper spray incident has spawned a lot of hilarity (check out the “fun with Photoshop” gallery over at Wired, where this Edvard Munch image came from). But one of my favorites are these bogus customer reviews for pepper spray over at Amazon.com:

1.0 out of 5 stars Product Warnng: This procuct multiplies protesters
I casually used this product to try to disperse a small band of non-violent campers who had locked their arms together. Although initially it seemed to be effective, it took two applications! The worst part is that the next day they multiplied exponentially! Now what?

One positive outcome, I did receive a paid vacation for my efforts.

Hilarious! Here’s another:

5.0 out of 5 stars Tastes like heaven, feels like angels :-), November 22, 2011
By Juanpi – See all my reviews
WOW. After being pepper sprayed by this sensuous essence, I’m not sure I ever want to be pepper sprayed by any other brand ever again. Seriously, the smoky chipotle combines perfectly with the subtle “spray” flavors. Really, an excellent and delicious tool for capitalist repression. Don’t commit police brutality without it.

Sometimes you’ve gotta laugh, or you’ll cry. If you are crying, let’s hope it’s not because you just got a faceful of Defense Technology 56895.

    You’ll definitely want to check out the reviews of pepper spray at amazon.com.

      Oops. I appear to have repeated the content of your post in my post. That’s what I get for doing multiple postings.

  4. Juanpi’s comment is all the more apt considering that, according to Megyn Kelly from FAUX Nooze, pepper spray is essentially a food product.

      Sounds like a great diet from a spray can — pepper spray with your Cheese Whiz… YUM.

      I vote for Megyn Kelly and Bill O’Reilly to each take a face full of that “food product” to demonstrate for their viewers how it was no big deal.

  5. Someone on Twitter mocked Megyn Kelly thusly: “Bamboo under the fingernails? It’s really just a manicure!”

    There really are no words to express how much I despise Fox News.

    Reading these comments I can’t seem to help but hear/see the “Putting Out Fires with Gasoline” scene from “Inglourious Basterds.”

    Someone who has Photoshop skillz will have to put this cop into the famous pnoto of one lone Chinese man staring down the tank in Tianamen Square.

    (Yeah, it’ll look much funnier than the words sound.)

    5.0 out of 5 stars Tastes great on nachos!,
    I really love hot sauce and while at first I was skeptical about using this on my nachos to spice it up a bit, my fears were relieved when I saw The O’Reilly Factor with Megyn Kelly. She said “its essentially a food product”. Great! I thought to myself. Now I can finally try this stuff on my nachos and boy was she right! This stuff is damn tasty, I don’t know what those dumb Davis cops were thinking spraying this on those unruly college kids. If I were those kids I’d bring a plate of nachos or maybe a burrito next time cause this stuff is fantastic! Enjoy with Megyn Kelly’s blessing.

  9. Oh, LOOK!

    “In a disturbing story of out California, at least twenty people, including some children, were injured during the Black Friday rush at a San Fernando Valley Walmart. In an effort to be the first to get her hands on Xbox gaming consoles and Wii video games, one woman actually pepper-sprayed her fellow shoppers!
    Bob Decastro reported that police are still looking for the woman, who was actually able to check out and buy an Xbox 360 at half price! Decastro added that the store stayed open and shoppers went about their business after the incident.”

    from here: http://foxnewsinsider.com/2011/11/25/shocking-story-20-injured-in-black-friday-pepper-spray-attack/

    So, when it interrupts the shoppin’frenzy it IS badstuff, as opposed to foodstuff? Foxing hypocrites.

  10. It looks like he is spraying bugs. What a jerk.
