Funniest Amazon Customer Reviews
1. BIC Cristal For Her Ball Pen
The specially designed pens for women’s hand is how the brand pitches these pens. The slim design and multi-color barrels make these pens look very pretty. However, one review explained its beauty with some amazing words.
“I don’t use it for vulgar endeavors like math or filling out a voter application.” The review starts with comments on the pastel colors and delicate shapes. But it soon takes a funny turn when the person explains how these pens are perfect for writing checks to the psychologist. Among all the reviews, this one makes you laugh for sure.
2. Hutzler 571 Banana Slicer
Popular as one of the strangest products on Amazon, this banana slicer has been the victim of multiple funny reviews. One among all of them stands out.
“The slicer is curved from left to right. All of my bananas are bent the other way.” The person in the review explains that the slicer is unacceptable due to the curved shape. This sarcastic take on the slicer makes it funny no matter how many times you read it.
3. Wheelmate Laptop Steering Wheel Desk
So, this is a product that allows you to work on your laptop while driving. It is an attachable surface tray that fits below the steering wheels. Obviously, it became the favorite of funny reviewers.
One review for this product says, “The bumpy road makes it hard to type. And there are a lot of pedestrians and traffic that keep distracting me from my computer.” The reviewer definitely found the funniest way to share the weakness of the core idea of the product. Funny and intelligent at the same time!
4. Three Wolf Moon T-Shirt
The brand doesn’t call it a “Wolf T-shirt”, they call it a “Three Wolf Shirt” and those three wolves are amazingly realistic in the words of the brand.
Well, one reviewer decided to take on that and reviewed, “I had a two-wolf shirt for a while and I didn’t think life could get any better. I was wrong. Life got 50% better, no lie.”
5. Avery Durable View Binder
Sometimes, even very simple products bring out the funny sides of a person. This binder became one of them.
A review of this product uses the product in the best possible metaphor.
“Maybe it’s just my women, but they don’t seem to want to fit into the space I’ve designated for them in this binder. They keep sticking out over the edges, even getting away in some cases.”
6. Uranium Ore
Well, when you are trying to sell Uranium ore online, it is natural for reviewers to make some funny comments.
This product became a deciding character in a three-line story explained in a review.
“I was very disappointed to have my uranium confiscated at the airport. It was a gift for my son for his birthday. Also, I’m in prison now, so that’s not good either.”
There is one more that makes you laugh out loud:
The reviewer says that this is not cat food. Not funny right?! He adds, “The cat’s huge and well, doesn’t really look much like a cat anymore.”
7. Tuscan Whole Milk
When Tuscan decided to sell milk, they forgot about adding very important information on their label. However, the mistake was pointed out by a responsible reviewer on Amazon.
“It’s excreted by squeezing the wobbly thingie on the UNDERSIDE OF A COW! That’s hardly made clear anywhere on the label.”
8. Accouterments Horse Head Mask
Can a horse head mask make your dreams come true?! Well, apparently it can.
“Plenty of hay, lots of time to run and, best of all, I no longer have to wear pants. Life has become so much better since becoming a horse.”
9. How to avoid huge ships
Captain John Trimmer has written this book for maritime navigation guidance. Its limited audience includes small private boars like yachts and trawlers. It is written to provide concrete guidance on what steps to take in order to avoid dashing into nearby big ships on the seas. Its odd title has spawned a slew of sarcastic jokes and comments that placed it right at the top with Korean acupressure devices and laptop desk attached to the steering wheel!
This book has gotten some of the most laughable reviews including this one where the reviewer took the title of the book quite literally. “Read this book before going on vacation and I couldn’t find my cruise liner in the port. Vacation ruined.”
“I bought How to Avoid Huge Ships as a companion to Captain Trimmer’s other excellent titles: How to Avoid a Train, and How to Avoid the Empire State Building. These books are fast-paced, well written and the hard-won knowledge found in them is as inspirational as it is informational. After reading them I haven’t been hit by anything bigger than a diesel bus. Thanks captain!”
