Amazon has assembled a list of some of the funniest, top-rated product reviews posted by its customers. Just don't expect the tongue-in-cheek examples to help with your buying decisions. "Helpful product reviews written by Amazon customers are the heart of, and we treasure the customers who work hard to write them," reads a new webpage that showcases the selections. "But occasionally customer creativity goes off the charts in the best possible way." Unsurprisingly, the best reviews on Amazon are often paired with some of the retailer's most famously bizarre items. Take for example the Three Wolf Moon t-shirt. A featured review by overlook1977 says, "Unfortunately I already had this exact picture tattooed on my chest, but this shirt is very useful in colder weather."

Naturally, Accoutrements' horse head mask — now the most popular mask on Amazon — is also included, though a review penned by George Takei is criminally omitted from the list. Other reviews cover a BIC pen set that's apparently designed for women, a banana slicer, uranium ore, and a gallon of whole milk. Amazon also gives a hat tip to a recent blog entry by Maria Popova that further explores the long running phenomenon of comedic reviews.
