I thought about giving this post a more tame title, but figured it most effectively conveyed the message. Plus, if I am going to go hunting for stupid stuff on Amazon, that is exactly what I would put in the search bar! There are a bunch of lists out there already on this topic, with some classics. This list is (mostly) newer ones.
Some of these things may very well serve a useful purpose, but personally, I find them 100% mock-able. Therefore, I present to you a curated list of things I find weird on Amazon. Some may be the perfect thing for that secret santa or white elephant exchange you have coming up. Many would also be beyond amazing as a way to give cash. Can you imagine getting a Tuna Press for your wedding? Only to discover that there’s actually $200 stuck inside? (Note: If you choose to give a cash gift like this, I strongly recommend writing something in your card. For example, “make sure to open your new Professional Tuna Press, as there is a surprise inside.”)
One of these is not like the others??
There’s an unprofessional Tuna Press?
Too bad it only has like 2 stars as a rating.
1 – Does that image look like a TV mounting bracket to you?
2 – $99,999.00 Seriously?

Does your high roller pet just want to blend in? The $9999.99 collar in a wetlands camo pattern will be perfect for them!
When you get bored with these, there are many other lists out there, including some classics like a tank. I tried to stick to ones that I hadn’t seen very often (okay, except for the emergency underpants and unicorn meat). There’s also lots of fantastic reviews on these things, I recommend reading the ones on the Clive Christian perfume for a laugh.
