Thinks Reader's Balls Are Splendid

Amazon’s new PayPhrase service has its advantages and disadvantages, but one curious feature is that the system generates sample phrases for you. Usually these are pretty innocuous and uplifting—”Laura’s Amazing Effort” and the like. But not for Gil. The PayPhrase system took the opportunity to comment on his private parts, and generated the phrase “Gil’s Splendid Balls” for him.

This phrase does, at least, have the benefit of being easy to remember.
