Jonathan Carroll is best known as a fine and brilliant author. He is also the kind of person who delights in sending things like this to his friends:Amazon.com: buying info: Harry Potter Nimbus 2000 Broom and suggesting strongly that they look at the picture and read the reviews carefully. Advice I can only pass on to you.
(Later: oh well. Amazon has carefully gone in and removed all the really funny ones, which made it apparent that a number of young ladies were getting a great of vibrational value from their brooms. Pity.)
