Friday Funnies: Jokes Are Made, Laughs Are Had

By Jeff Somogyi, dealnews Media Editor

We take our deals very seriously, but every now and again we just can't help ourselves from slipping in a joke or two. In fact, we posted several throughout the past week; did you see them all? If so, move along, there is nothing to see here! But if not, then here they are, all in one place for your convenience. But be warned! Though the write-ups are still as funny as the day we wrote them, some of the deals may have expired. The funnies:

Electronics Cleaning Putty
This ecto-plasm-like goop seems a lot like Silly Putty, but way, way less silly. Somber Putty.

Vulcan FREELOADER Plug-Free USB Charger (EXPIRED)
Like a certain emotionless first officer*, this device hangs around obsequiously until needed.

Philosophy Hope in a Jar 2-oz. Moisturizer (EXPIRED)
Was this one of "Oprah's Favorite Things"? Seeing as how the box is emblazoned with her face, we're going to go with "yes".

Sony Party-Shot Personal Photographer
Until machines can take the party classic "at arm's length with our faces mashed together", this Annie Robovitz will never replace good old flesh-and-blood photography.

Harley #1 Sticker
That's the best deal we've seen for this sticker, which shows your support of Harley-Davidson, America, and the number 1.
Ownership of a Harley motorcycle is not required; however, it would help smooth over the potentially tense situation when a Hell's Angel approaches you while filling up your Prius, points at the sticker, and rumbles, "Whaddaya ride, Cager?"

GE Adora 30" Self-Cleaning Freestanding Gas Range (EXPIRED)
Of note, ranges are perfect for those times when you accidentally purchase non-microwavable foods.

McCulloch Portable Power Steam Cleaner (EXPIRED)
We're not sure, but we don't think this is the steampunk the kids are talking about.

The Funnies In: You're A Good Man, Facebook

This week, we asked our Facebook fans to generate their own funnies for this Scalp Massager (EXPIRED). Here's a few of the comments that made us laugh:

Brad Burrell: Now for only $2, a broken wisk!
Marianne Driver: Makes great scrambled eggs, then scrambles your brain sooo good.
Christopher Wildman: It's for your head...we swear!
