George Takei–known for his role as Sulu from Star Trek and as reigning ‘King of the Internet’ –has just released a new unisex fragrance for pre-order, “Eau My” (his famous catchphrase is “Oh Myyy”) on Amazon, a venue where he is also known for his witty reviews of the online retail giant’s sillier offerings.

In the spirit of the holiday season, here are DnA’s Top 5 picks of George Takei’s Amazon reviews. And any reader is welcome to send us a review of “Eau My.”

inflatable unicorn horn 1. Inflatable Unicorn Horn for Cats

We are cat lovers at DnA, but regrettably we aren’t always at the helm of the latest in cat design (although we did write a blog on architecture for dogs earlier this year.)

George’s three cats reportedly loved the inflatable unicorn horns, but apparently too much as the horns transformed his three comely cats into the “Three new overlords of House Takei.”

Yes, you read that right. This is a gigantic hamster ball for humans. George recounts his first experience with the product in Hollywood Hills, where he reportedly “had a ball.”

3. Squirrel Underpants

During my time at UCLA, I witnessed some pretty absurd squirrel behavior. It is common knowledge among Bruins that our squirrels are more than just a little “squirrely”; in fact, there’s a Facebook Page with almost 4,000 fans called “Squirrels at UCLA” that documents the lively UCLA squirrel population.

So after seeing squirrels dumpster dive, fly across trees, and exhibit generally psychotic behavior, I thought I had seen it all. That was until I saw squirrel underpants. George purchased a pair for his friend’s hamster named Frederick, who was less than impressed; his friend said this product is “not recommended for gay hamsters.”

This is for those who truly have it all.

In his review of his remote-controlled airborne Jaws, George recalls scaring his husband Brad with it in their backyard.  Startled by Jaws, Brad shot a flare gun, and evidently “the flare struck and propelled my Jaws up and into the air, then burst its guts across much of lower Hollywood.”

bacon bandaids5. Bacon-themed Adhesive Bandages

For those who can’t get enough puns, this review is for you. George writes, “Not to pork fun at an injury, but nothing strips the pain away like meating friends out dressed like this.”

(DnA’s Frances Anderton notes that nobody should “pork fun” at these bandages because in her experience they are a guaranteed winner with small children.)
