Friday Funnies: We Laugh With (not at) The Deals From The Past Week

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 not, then here they all are, rounded up 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:

Rightline Gear PackRight Cargo Saddlebag (EXPIRED)
Like a fanny pack for your car, it's great if you literally have too much junk in your trunk.

Northwest Territory Chippewa Family 8-Person Dome Tent
Unlike Thunder Dome tents, Family Dome tents allow your whole family to enter and leave.

Caution Tape 300-Foot Roll (EXPIRED)
It will allow you to finally warn off the neighborhood kids from coming too close to your leaking nuclear reactor (you know, the one that's been turning the little scamps into superheros / corpses).

Holga 120 Color Flash Camera
Before there was an app for it, this camera was known for producing "whimsical" images that have vignetting, soft focus, and "enchanting" light leaks. (In other words: This camera makes your pictures look like crap ... but in a cool, "arty" way.)

The Funnies In: The Facebook of Id

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

Clint C.: But will it float behind you while tubing? I tried that with a regular salad bar with horrific results.
Dan L.: The perfect addition to your sober/vegan casino! A swim-up salad bar!
Eric S.: An attempt to make vegetables somehow fun & enjoyable -- for those of you unfamiliar with bacon.
Andrew G.: NO FORKS OR KNIVES on the salad bar, please.
Patrick I.: The lifeboats on the USS Sizzler were woefully inadequate at actually saving lives.

Want to join in the fun? Be a "Like"-er of our Facebook page and keep your eyes peeled for our next challenge!
