    The owner literally scours the world looking for great gag merchandise.

    And the best part of the deal? You won't break the bank.

    "It's pretty affordable here. Everything is under $10. If you give your kids $5 it's like a fortune because they can get just about anything in the store," Hermanny said.

    Celebrities like Pee Wee Herman have checked out Uncle Fun over the years.

    It just goes to show, no matter what generation you belong to, fart jokes never get old.
