Three Wolf Moon

As earlier noted, the odd item on can suddenly start generating customer reviews at an impossible rate.

Enter the Three Wolf Moon T-shirt. It's got over 700 customer reviews at the moment, and is currently Amazon's best-selling apparel item. As you can see from the design, it has kitsch appeal, unlike other unlikely products (like Tuscan Whole Milk). But the tripartite lupine design aside, let's get a sampling of those reviews:
“[Buying this shirt] was the best decision I’ve ever made, including the decisions I made to go to college, to marry my husband and to continue taking A.D.H.D. medication.”
“Pros: Fits my girthy frame, has wolves on it, attracts women.
Cons: Only 3 wolves (could probably use a few more on the ‘guns’), cannot see wolves when sitting with arms crossed, wolves would have been better if they glowed in the dark.”
“When I opened the package, the focused radiance of the shirt actually burned my shadow onto the wall.”
“As soon as I put this shirt on the Bank called to apologize about trying to foreclose on my home.”

“I have been wearing this shirt for about 15 weeks and I have not needed to wash it! You don’t put this shirt on your torso you put it on your soul.”

Thanks to Peter Applebome for parsing the reviews!
