Amazon punts grot flicks to hardcore Natalie Portman fans

Knows her audience

Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

It's often been suggested in these pages that the gifted actress Natalie "microphone head" Portman is apt to attract a certain breed of internet fan.

See here and here for examples of our chronicling of this onanistic band of netizens.

Final confirmation of the thesis comes to us today via international compact disc warehousing operation Amazon. Its SPod dvd-buYing On amazoN Behaviour cRoss-referencing Algorithm™ (SPY ON BRA) has crunched the numbers, and revealed a near-perfect correlation between ham-fisted Wachowski brothers' graphic novel adaptation V for Vendetta and its own exclusive 12 Hardcore Sex Films Box Set.

Here's the email Amazon's marketing bods sent to Reg reader Jarrod after he purchased the aforementioned dystopian turkey:

Hello, Jarrod ****,

So there, you have it, QED. You can't argue with maths, and at less than £1 per hardcore sex film, you can't argue with those prices, either.
