That should be, “Gave my friend and me a good laugh.”
You wouldn’t say, “Gave I a good laugh.” Or would you?
From the dictionary –

accustomed; used (usually fol. by an infinitive): He was wont to rise at dawn.
custom; habit; practice: It was her wont to walk three miles before breakfast.
–verb (used with object)
to accustom (a person), as to a thing.
to render (a thing) customary or usual (usually used passively).
–verb (used without object)
Archaic. to be wont.
The word is used in the proper sense here –
BTW @DSL – “my friend and I” is the right way to say it.
I also couldn’t help but notice the “no fish oil” sentence in the sign. This sign is very strange indeed. Heheh.
@Guru, “my friend and I” is NOT the proper way to say it in this context. The correct usage would be “Gave my friend and me a good laugh”.
‘…my friend & me…’ is correct. It is the object of the sentence and therefore needs the accusative pronoun – me. But what about the random scattering of capitals? Only proper nouns are capitalized in English.
Absolutely —my friend and me! Ironic to be correcting
someone and making mistakes in the correction.
