Yet another installment in the drudgery that is everyday shopping. The camera-phone makes it a bit more fun - though I get looks whenever I take pics of products. Like I care what people think!
Is there anything on Earth easier than slicing a banana?
Even as a child I made myself banana cereal. I know, I know - there's not such thing. My mother was fond of telling me that cutting a banana up into a bowl and covering it with milk did not make anything called "banana cereal".
....and you people wonder where I come from and how I was raised. You can all blame her for my attitude. I do.
So it just amused the fucking shit out of me when at the grocery store, I came upon this:
Place this over a banana and push down to to cut it into pieces. Really?
People actually manufacture this shit? People actually buy this crap? Something a butter knife can do just as easily, just as quickly and cleans up a whole lot faster?
I'll give whomever makes it the credit. They got financial backing for the product and probably did a market study to figure out we are the laziest group of people to ever inhabit the Earth. ....what they probably failed to realize is that these lazy ass folks don't eat fruits or vegetables and would never buy the thing because if they ever bought a banana, they couldn't figure how to get the peel off the thing.
