Today I realized how super lazy I am. I like to put sliced bananas in my cereal and I'm also in the process of trying to eat healthier, so I was making a fruit salad when I started to wonder if there was an easier way to cut my fruits. I looked online, because you know? Anytime you want to know something, you Google or Amazon.com it, lol. I went on Amazon and found a banana slicer. Woah! So someone had that idea before me?
While looking at the slicer, I saw that it only had 3.7 out of 5 stars. I started to wonder why a banana slicer would have such low ratings? Who could possibly have a problem with a freakin banana slicer? Does it break easily? Was it made out of tissue paper? How can something that would save me so much time and energy get just 3.7 stars?
Well, you know I'm a sucker for reading reviews. I like reviews so much I write reviews about my own experiences. So I read the reviews and got a great ab workout from laughing. People are hilarious! Once I realized the reviews are pure entertainment and the people were being sarcastic, I started to wonder why I never came across something like this before. I'm going to bookmark that page just so I can have constant laughs on days when I'm feeling a bit blue! Here's a few examples of what I read for your viewing pleasure:
- By SW3K: "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. 99.9% of the time, I would get so frustrated that I just ended up squishing the fruit in my hands and throwing it against the wall in anger. Then, after a fit of banana-induced rage, my parole officer introduced me to this kitchen marvel and my life was changed..."
- By Mrs Toledo: "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, AND we've even incorporated it into our lovemaking. THANKS 571B BANANA SLICER!"
