"blurbs for some things in my flat"

Chris Killen (whose literary taste I've lauded here previously) has come up with a very funny list of blurbs for mundane things in his flat.

"Reminiscent of the works of McEwen and possibly even Updike, this cross-section of orange throw is up there with the greats."
Clearly, anything can be blurbed, no matter how inconsequential. Which I hope gives you pause next time you see a raving blurb on the jacket of a book you're thinking of buying.
