Banana Slicer – Monday Laugh

My friend sent me this banana slicer product on Facebook this morning and told me to read the comments-funniest thing I’ve seen all day.  Amazon carries the Victorio Kitchen Products 571B Banana Slicer, which according to the reviews and comments, is a lifesaving kitchen tool. I wish I would have had one when I made that Banana Split Icebox Cake-the banana slices would have been PERFECT. The reviews are AWESOME. I have highlighted a few of my favorite below.

“I tried the banana slicer and found it unacceptable. As shown in the picture, the slices is curved from left to right. All of my bananas are bent the other way.”

“For decades I have been trying to come up with an ideal way to slice a banana. “Use a knife!” they say. Well…my parole officer won’t allow me to be around knives. “Shoot it with a gun!” Background check…HELLO! I had to resort to carefully attempt to slice those bananas with my bare hands..”

“As you may or may not know, I have 27 trained monkeys I use to do my evil bidding. Well, the younger monkeys teeth have not fully developed and so slicing a banana to feed them is a necessary chore. The adult monkeys used to have to chew up bananas and feed their young but not anymore with the Victorio Kitchen Products 571B Banana Slicer. The adults are going bananas over this time saving easy product.”

“Think about it. You have your knife in your hand. You cut the banana. One slice. Two slice. Oh, shoot, that slice was twice as thick as the previous slice. Hmm. Try again. Third slice. My hell, that slice veered off to the side and it’s not a banana disc, it’s a stupid banana wedge. Oh, and the stupid thing is sticking to the knife.”

“What can I say about the 571B Banana Slicer that hasn’t already been said about the wheel, penicillin, or the iPhone…. this is one of the greatest inventions of all time. My husband and I would argue constantly over who had to cut the day’s banana slices. It’s one of those chores NO ONE wants to do! You know, the old “I spent the entire day rearing OUR children, maybe YOU can pitch in a little and cut these bananas?” and of course, “You think I have the energy to slave over your damn bananas? I worked a 12 hour shift just to come home to THIS?!” These are the things that can destroy an entire relationship. It got to the point where our children could sense the tension. The minute I heard our 6-year-old girl in her bedroom, re-enacting our daily banana fight with her Barbie dolls, I knew we had to make a change. That’s when I found the 571B Banana Slicer. Our marriage has never been healthier. THANKS 571B BANANA SLICER!”

“Once I figured out I had to peel the banana before using – it works much better.
Ordering one for my nephew who’s in the air force in California. He’s been using an old slinky to slice his banana’s. He should really enjoy this product!”

If you are interested in your own Victorio Kitchen Products 571B Banana Slicer, check them out on Amazon! They’re about $5.29, although with Amazon prices can change at any time :) Better hurry and get one so you don’t have to waste any more time slicing bananas!
