This time last year, we published a list of our ten funniest Amazon reviews.

They ranged from the 'upside down' picture and the 'back-to-front' banana slicer to 'God's second novel after the Old Testament'.

And in the twelve months since, online reviewers have been just as busy pouring scorn on the site's products. We pick ten of our favourite Amazon reviews from the last year.

Five of the funniest customer queries

Trump Make America Great Again Red Cap Collectible Ornament
"Despite ordering a more reasonable ornament, this one arrived. It. Is. Yuge. It's absolutely yuge. It's the biggest ornament. Yuge.
I hung it on my tree, but it is so yuge that it has totally unbalanced my whole tree. No matter where I hang it, the tree leans waaaaaay over to the far right."

Mission Impossible - Rogue Nation
"The mission felt relatively possible to me."

3 Swords - Glass nail file
"This thing is so good at its job that it's downright fun to use. It makes me want to file away everything. My cat's nails (though I think she'd object). Rough edges on the wooden table."

Ivanka Trump Womens Issa boots
"Fake boot! Don't believe what you hear- this is completely a fake boot."

"My wife wears these as we walk to weekly book burning."

Moleskine Small Backpack
"Society didn't tell me to buy this backpack, I told myself to buy this backpack. Society would have told me it was a terrible idea to take out a loan the size of a brand new customized Camaro with an installed super charged engine but my vegan leather backpack makes a good pillow as I stare at the stars at night and congratulate myself on how much of a nonconformist I am."

CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Xtreme VR GXiVR8020A Gaming Desktop
"The D key on the keyboar does not work well and has to be pushe hard if I really want that D there."

The world's weirdest job titles

The Seafarer keyboard
"Sure, you can get a keyboard with macro keys, backlighting, and USB pass through for 1/10 of the price, but none of the other keyboards have a map of the sea as the backplate!"

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water
"Accidental purchase and nothing against Spongebob but I can think of about 200 different ways I could've spent $20 instead of on this. Thanks Amazon for making it so simple to purchase even my dog can purchase items if he has the remote."

Monks make millions from 'tonic wine' that has been linked to violence

Epson WorkForce WF-7620 Wireless Color All-in-One Inkjet Printer with Scanner and Copier

"This machine is the single largest obstacle to productivity I have ever encountered in my life. I spend so much time clearing paper jams that it would actually be faster and more efficient for me to train myself to hand-print in Arial font, and then just write all of my correspondence manually."

Waterfall Audio "Niagara" Diamond Glass Floor Standing Loudspeakers
"I was quite despondent to see them shipped in simple wooden and cardboard boxes as if these were being sent to peasants. They should have been packed in hand stained mahogany shipping containers and wrapped tightly in baby panda fur for softness."
