Here is the gang offering their hilarious opinions on the Hutzler Banana Slicer.
O my gosh , I laughed until I cried. Literally. I cannot think of the last time I had tears rolling down my face from laughing so hard.
Thanks for sharing these, Mark. Truly masterpieces of the banana-slicer-reviewer’s art.
And here am I still living in the Stone Age slicing my bananas with a knife. Well, no more! This is going on my Christmas wish list!
I shudder to think of all the comic genius that was forced to lay fallow, back in the dark ages before Amazon started carrying sufficiently ridiculous products.
After going to that URL and clicking to get the most recent reviews on top I read some. I then sent the URL to a friend at work. After reading some of them she insisted on giving me a banana she had with her in her office. I am working at my library’s Reference Desk, but it’s not at all busy now. I went to the most recent reviews because in the oldest reviews the text has been deleted although some of the titles are amusing in themselves.
Meh. As several of the reviewers pointed out, this thing is worthless without some way of getting the peel off the banana.
Catalogs like Lillian Vernon and Miles Kimball are a rich source of entertainingly useless gadgets.
Gnaw, that’s not a problem.
A good suggestion, but tardy; I have already ordered a fruit-gnawer. Stay tuned for Amazon review.
Wow! There really should be some kind of literary award for this kind of work. Something like the Shopping Cart Prize. Trouble is, everyone would win. The comedy is of really consistently high quality.
