Everybody is a comedian these days, and the Internet has given us all an enormous stage. Maybe the best example is a supposedly comedy-free site like Amazon.com.

The deal is, anybody can write a review, on any product, whether they have bought it or not. So it's just a matter of finding a baffling/ridiculous/useless product and watching the Internet's sarcasm run wild. For instance, just check out the reviews for ...

Be sure to click the links and read ALL of the reviews. I got a very nice laugh out of most of them :)

Haha, great stuff! There are tons of crazy products and reviews on Amazon, but sifting through the reviews for the really funny ones can take time. Thankfully cracked.com editors get paid to waste time. :D

A word of warning: Cracked.com can be addictive. Whatever you do, don't click the "Recommended for Your Pleasure" or Related links. It will never stop! I speak from experience.  :-[

Excellent~!

He cut one of the reviews short, and really shouldn't have because it was simply hilarious:

It's about the Playmobil Security Checkpoint Set.

Don't say I didn't warn you. Here's one of mine on a "romance" novel, which is NSFW:

Those were very funny.

For more such reviews check out David Hasselhoffs, Best of on Amazon. Seems people love giving it over the top reviews about how it changed their life.

These are great.  My all time favorite is the Three Wolf Moon t-shirt with 1878 hilarious reviews.

Just wanted to post on here, be careful to order your shirt from here only. I was looking to get one cheaper, and bought one off Ebay, but didn't read it carefully enough. You guessed it, one wolf, three moons. I mean its ok to wear I guess, but if you look carefully you can tell its not the real thing. It hasn't made me as confident as the real one would of, but at least I THINK about the real one when I wear it, and that helps a bit I guess.

Don't try to save a couple bucks! NOT WORTH IT.
