Pen12388If you enjoy a bit of irony, have a gander at the reviews (and comments) on the inexpensive Bic Crystal ballpoint pen. It seems some writers (British and non) are having a bit of fun with this trusty implement.

Some selections:

Very good if you need to write on paper.

Writes well – but it’s unmusical

A sad disappointment (it doesn’t have an inkwell)

A good product, but instructions could be clearer.

And, of course, a limerick and a poem.
