Our gold box of Amazon’s best reviews

Chau Tu Aug 20, 2013

Customer reviews can make all the difference when you’re buying something online. And especially with a massive shopping site like Amazon, reviews come in all shapes and sizes, from the scathing, to the fawning … to the just plain weird.

Amazon’s compiled a list of some of its most humorous product reviews. Here are some of our favorites:

For The Mountain Three Wolf Moon Short Sleeve Tee:

5.0 out of 5 stars Great compliment for my skin art, May 19, 2009
“Unfortunately I already had this exact picture tattooed on my chest, but this shirt is very useful in colder weather.” overlook1977

For Tuscan Whole Milk, 1 Gallon, 128 fl oz:

5.0 out of 5 stars Combine with other foods!, August 5, 2006
“Has anyone else tried pouring this stuff over dry cereal? A-W-E-S-O-M-E!” J. Fitzsimmons

For the Accoutrements Horse Head Mask:

5.0 out of 5 stars My Transformation is Complete, December 3, 2012
“It is day 87 and the horses have accepted me as one of their own. I have grown to understand and respect their gentle ways. Now I question everything I thought I once knew and fear I am no longer capable of following through with my primary objective. I know that those who sent me will not relent. They will send others in my place… But we will be ready”  ByronicHero
