50 Hilariously Honest Amazon Reviews
If there’s something in this world that we still have the power to control, it must be reviews. These short sentences of practical wisdom shared with fellow customers, shoppers, or diners can totally make it or break it for brands, services, and products.
Think of the last time you went on Amazon to get your mom a fancy aroma diffuser. If you are a stranger in the land of aroma diffusers, and most of us are, you totally rely on that one or two scribbles of feedback left by someone who probably doesn’t remember ever writing it.
And while some reviews are indeed helpful and others plain odd, others are splendidly hilarious. Like, verging on the border of being their own kind of comedic gold.
But thanks to the subreddit r/amazonreviews, which has been collecting the “the funniest damned product reviews on Amazon” since 2012, we've got quite an archive to feast on. From weirdly specific to plain specific, from painfully funny to mildly funny, there’s everything for every single taste in the reviews department. Psst! Part 1 of the same 5-star hilarity waits here.

Turning A Bad Situation Into A Good Review?
To find out more about the community dedicated entirely to the funniest, most genuine, and utterly absurd Amazon reviews, Bored Panda reached out to the moderator u/Pzreich of the subreddit r/AmazonReviews.
Even though the subreddit was created 8 years ago, it didn’t really get a lot of people coming until 2015. Today, the community gets about 90 to 150 posts a month, but the daily amount of submissions varies quite a bit, the mod explained.
When asked about what u/Pzreich defines as a good Amazon review, he said that it’s one which “shares the delightful oddities people possess and share. I personally prefer those where you can really see the person’s thoughts and personality and stories shine through.” This review would be an example of it.

Meanwhile, a bad review is “generally anything repetitive,” the moderator explained and added that “we’ve had to close quite a few posts that were Amazon users answering questions in a way that didn’t make sense. Turns out, “it was found that they received these in their email and it wasn’t them intentionally answering the question.”
"This can still lead to funny occurrences, but generally it’s not the most interesting to look at, no shame at all to our wonderful members who share them," said u/Pzreich and gave this review as an example.
On the other hand, a fan-favorite funny review is usually one that “doesn’t have to be super long, but it usually falls into the same standards as the good ones,” u/Pzreich said. According to him, simplicity and comedic appeal combined make a perfect Amazon review that entertains people. And this particular one may have it all, according to the moderator.
“I enjoy moderating this subreddit because Amazon reviews are really the gift that keeps on giving since it really is a great medium for capturing a neat essence of human nature,” u/Pzreich concluded.

That cancer warning law backfired. Everything now causes cancer, and no one cares or pays attention to the warning. Making it ineffectual, therefore the companies are still liable if they use cancer causing stuff. Lookin at you, Monsanto.

Happy Birthday. Seriously. It's your day. Cozy up in bed. Binge Netflix until your eyes roll out of your sockets. I don't care. Do something you want to do, without feeling guilty. 'Cause today, that doesn't matter. Today, all that matters it what you want, fellow Panda.
