Really, Amazon?

Found this sort of amusing…

Amazon.com's product pages have all kinds of useful information these days, along with a quirky little datum called "statistically improbably phrases," or SIPs for those of you who like your acronyms to imply a beverage that's just a little bit too hot. An SIP is a phrase that, in Amazon's opinion, is unlikely to appear in regular usage. It's one way of giving readers a window into a book's content, I guess.

Well, check out what I've circled in red from this Amazon screen capture on the Fanboy page:

Really, Amazon? "Comic book convention" is a statistically improbable phrase? Really? I'll call the folks in San Diego… 🙂

    So true. It’s amazing. News stations have mentioned Comic-Con briefly in passing every year, mostly just to make fun of all of us “geeks”, but this year, now that it’s “trendy” they had like hours of coverage. As a San Diegan who has gone to Comic-Con since a young age…Boo Amazon.
