hilarious product reviews

If you thought shopping online had to be a ho-hum experience, you'll be glad to discover that product reviewers are becoming increasingly creative.

See, for example, these seemingly benign items on amazon: 1 gallon of Tuscan whole milk, a three wolf moon t-shirt or a $220,000 diamond ring (3.0 out of 5 stars Tempted, but not just yet: As nice as this ring is, I can't help feeling it's a bit overpriced. I'm going to wait until it drops to $217,500 before shelling out any of my hard earned cash. Amazon must think we're made of money!)

For kicks, you can even find uranium ore on amazon.

Got heaps of free time and don't know what to do with it?

You can always check out the Relaxman Relaxation Capsule or the laptop steering wheel desk , which was"5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! Holds my sheet music perfectly while driving" and "has been a total lifesaver. It allows me to prop my sheet music against the wheel, allowing me to play the guitar with both hands while driving."

It would seem the possibilities are endless.

Happy shopping. As George W. Bush reminded us, it's our American duty to help the economy in tough times.
