Shopping is one of our favorite past times because who doesn’t love a retail therapy session after a long week? With the advent of online shopping, our choices have infinitely expanded in a digital universe that is home to more marketplaces than we could possibly imagine. It’s also borderless, allowing us to buy anything we want from almost anywhere in the world. Our newfound freedom to connect our credit cards to online shopping carts also comes with facepalmingly bad shopping fails. But be forewarned. Even if you skip the online sales, loading up your cart in a traditional brick-and-mortar store won’t necessarily save you from a case of buyer’s remorse when you open the box and find you were the victim of false advertisement. Today we’re kicking back and having a laugh (or thirty) at some of the internet’s best shopping fails, from food to fashion and more.

Some people are lucky enough to have bountiful gardens full of fresh fruits and vegetables, and they have the time to carefully select each piece and slice and dice them into culinary perfection.

Do you think customer service would pull the “technically, you have two carrots” card? Or does he deserve a refund?
