If you're browsing the internet for laughs but the memes seem overused and the comics look like they've become a copy of each other, there's still something that might do the trick. Amazon reviews. They're honest, witty, and, best of all, self-aware. From an elderly man who just used a selfie-stick for the first time to a woman who can't pull her new turtleneck over her head, you don't have to be a writer for a late night talk show to pen something hilarious. All it takes is just a little bit of amazement or disappointment after you open your long-awaited delivery. Continue scrolling and check out some of the funniest Amazon reviews the site has to offer!

According to NBC Los Angeles, however, Amazon users shouldn't base their decision of whether to buy a particular thing or not solely on the product reviews. University of Southern California social media professor Karen North said that the sellers are tricking Amazon's algorithm. "As sellers on Amazon, people know there are ways to game the system, where it looks like you have more positive ratings than you do," she said.

Prof. North also gave an example of one of the Amazon shopping schemes: sellers post a product to sell, collect reviews, then swipe out the product for a new one while keeping the old reviews in place.

North said sellers can do this over and over, duping buyers into thinking a product has more or better reviews than it really does. North says Amazon needs to crack down.

"They need to start thinking about whether or not people are figuring out how to game their system. And they need to figure out how to go in and clean that up," she said.

In a statement to the I-Team, Amazon admitted these things do happen: "These bad actors show a flagrant disregard for our community, and our policies ... we work with sellers and law enforcement to hold them accountable by withholding funds and pursuing civil and criminal penalties."

To be fair, I'd be excited if I found a giant ice cream sandwich too. And it does look like one

I had to buy a fridge lock once, when one of the cats I had then learned how to open the fridge door one evening while I was out.

I would totally 100% buy this. I wonder if it'll work with dog hair. I have huskies and malamutes so it might be fun
