Friday Funnies: We Wrote Some Funny Things. Read Them and Laugh!

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:

Silicone Swimming Finger Web
Wearing these should make you swim faster, yet you'll still be slower than that great white shark that's right behind you*!
*We realize that none of you are reading this while swimming, so this might not seem very scary. But what you didn't know is that there is a shark standing behind you in your office. Don't turn around or it'll eat you.

Lutron AuroRa Wireless Lighting Control System
This set includes five wall dimmers and two control switches, one of which is wireless (to suddenly raise the lights in the living room, freaking out your teenage daughter who thought you didn't know her boyfriend snuck over for some canoodling, for example).

24 Cans of Mighty Dog Dog Food
Available flavors include Lamb & Rice, Beef Tenderloin, Rotisserie Chicken, Roasted Beef in Gravy, Roasted Pork, and more. (Admit it, your mouth is now watering at the flavors of dog food! Gross!)

REI Hobitat 6-Person Tent
This 3-season, 6-person (or, we assume, 12-halfling) tent features two doors, two windows, 10 built-in pockets, and more. It's the perfect tent to get you there ... and back again.
Alternate joke: Just think of the fun you'll have shouting "YOU! SHALL! NOT! PASS!" when someone asks if they can come in.

Mortal Kombat: Kollector's Edition for Xbox 360
That's the lowest total price we kould find by $50. Sales tax is added where applikable. It inkludes Scorpion and Sub-Zero figurines, The Art of Mortal Kombat book, several in-game and avatar kostumes, and more.

L.A. Noire for Xbox 360 or PS3
In this thrilling game based in 1940s L.A., you play a hard-boiled detective who must find and catalog all the landmarks and vehicle types in the city. (Though there are some rather elaborate crime-solving missions, too.)

The Funnies In: Something Horrible on Facebook

This week, we asked our Facebook fans to generate their own funnies for this Williams-Sonoma Square Slider Burger Press. Here's a few of the comments that made us laugh:

Kevin Raines: It's hip to be square!
Will McCole: One way to make sure you get a square meal.
Daniel Pentecost: What's the best way to double your output in the kitchen? Burgers squared.
Justin Coffman: Cavemen burgers, you know, before the wheel was invented.
Kara Joyce Stevens: When spongebob got turned into a crabby patty...
Neal Moritz: For that all too often occasion when you have those leftover square buns. Here's your solution!
Paul Jurado: It's like fitting a round patty in a square hole!
Brent Brown: If you think "Meet the Press" is full of squares, you should see this Press the Meat.
