The Funniest Reviews, Ads and AutoCorrects of 2013

AmazonReviewDoes anyone else read Amazon reviews for entertainment? I have to control myself or I’d be in there all day long.

Piper Bayard sent me the reviews of Bic Pens for Her with gems like this: “Someone has answered my gentle prayers and FINALLY designed a pen that I can use all month long!”

Then another pal turned me on to the UK reviews. Those are even better than the American version. And VEET Hair Removal for Men is the best of them all. Those of you who need a holiday giggle have come to the right place. The Brits are always funny, but these VEET guys have just a wee bit more, if you know what I mean.

Click here for my very favorite VEET review, but really…you must read them all. This guy had me at “rastafarian danglies” but I think it was the ice cream that finally sent me over the edge.

(I warn you, the review is a bit crass. Hide your children, and please…Set down your drink before reading.


Then there’s Poo-Pourri, where you can find products like these.

PooPourri - Best Marketing

I came across this latest product via the video first and it was the best ad I’d seen all year. I LOVE THESE PEOPLE. They have some of the best marketing I’ve ever seen.

I could not stop laughing at this gal. I swear she puts the curly “F” in flatulence. She just sounds so proper. I’ve been laughing over the product and it’s “Unconditional Stink-free Guarantee” for DAYS.

Like any self-respecting product researcher, I ran to Amazon to see if they had it. (And they did!) But as you’ve already figured out, I’m in it for the reviews at Amazon.

Product Description Scent Name: Original

Spritz the bowl before you go and no one else will ever know! Poo-Pourri Original 4oz Bottle – Stop embarrassing odor with our Patent Pending bathroom freshener. Our Natural Essential Oils create a film on the surface of the water, trapping odor at it’s source. A Citrus Fresh blend of Lemon-grass, Bergamot, Grapefruit and other natural essential oils that leave the bathroom smelling clean and fresh!

The reviews are stellar, and tend to sound like this:

5.0 out of 5 stars A godsend…, January 23, 2013

Anyone who has a man in their life prone to dropping stinkbombs should invest in a bottle for every bathroom in the house. It is almost disconcerting when I walk in there and it smells GOOD! 🙂

The Poo-Pourri site has much better pricing (for all except the Costco-sized refill) and you get to see all the cool product names like Deja Poo and Heavy Doody.


And finally, if you need even more giggles, here’s 18 of the Best AutoCorrects of 2013 from Little White Lion.

Note: Put down your drink first…and maybe go potty.

For all of you who are starting your holiday travels, have a very Merry Christmas.
