Friday Funnies: We Make A Mockery of the Deals From the Past Week

Compiled 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 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:

Back to the Future Lights and Sound Delorean
At 1/18 scale, it should only need to attain 4.8mph and consume 67.2 megawatts of energy to operate. So, outside of the TARDIS ... is smaller than the inside. But back to the Delorean: It features moving parts, lights, and sound effects.

Silk Necktie, Cufflinks, and Handkerchief Set 4-Pack (EXPIRED)
These ties can be worn around the neck during business hours and around the head for party time.

Contech Scarecrow Motion-Activated Sprinkler
The Scarecrow is billed as a humane solution to unwanted intruders such as dogs, cats, rabbits, and your neighbors' kids.

NOS Cheater Nitrous System
Nitrous oxide increases the power output of your car's engine (and is also useful when your car needs dental surgery).

Keychain Spy Camera Video Recorder
Of note, it kinda ruins the "spy" aspect of it when you hold your keys up to someone's face while saying, "Aaaaaaaand: ACTION!".

Braveheart / Gladiator Movie 2-Pack on Blu-ray (EXPIRED)
Each film features lots of yelling, sword fighting, and skirt-wearing.

The Funnies In: The Facebook of Id

This week, we asked our Facebook fans to generate their own funnies for this Golf Ball Dispenser and Hitting Mat. Here's a few of the comments that made us laugh:

Ray Smotherman: Finally a caddie that won't sell you out to the media.
Tom Stone: Now I just need an automatic golf ball retriever.
Pat Junkins: You get a golf ball dispenser and you get to hit Matt. (Sorry Matt)
Duke Burks: If practicing is STILL too much of an inconvenience, you can pick up an automatic club swinger then just sit back and stay in a good mood.
Aaron Schindler: With 36 balls you're sure to get at least one past the windmill.

I definitely like the occasional jokes you guys post...but recapping them kinda gives of a vibe of desperation....  If you have to explain or point-out a joke, it loses it's humor.  Just my opinion...
