This is pure madness. A specially designed suitcase for your bananas. I'm serious! Check out the patent here!
Bananas are the perfect fruit. They even come with their own protective wrapping that's so effective, it's all we use. You can even grab a bunch by their stems and then you have a handle to carry them, sorta. So why do we need a Banana Suitcase, you may ask? Bruises! That's right, no one likes bruises on their bananas, so our fruity inventor came up with the Banana Suitcase, a protective case devised to protect your banana from the dangers lurking in the world outside their thick skins.
Wanna hear the inventors instructions? "In use, the user opens the container and places a banana inside thereof and closes the container to allow the user to carry the banana in a safe manner so that it remains fresh and is protected from becoming bruised." Good thing it comes with instructions.
Now wanna here some legalese? Here's what the patent attorney had to say about the instructions..."As to a further discussion of the manner of usage and operation of the present invention, the same should be apparent from the above description. Accordingly, no further discussion relating to the manner of the usage and operation will be provided." Hey, we didn't want to discuss it anyway.
Here's our two cents on the subject. We've purchased hundreds of bananas, possibly thousands of bananas and you know what, no two are the same. There's big ones, small ones, straighter ones, curvier ones and we're not sure ours is the right size and shape to fit into the Banana Suitcase. So now we need an engineer to devise a device for measuring the curve, length and thickness of our bananas to assure a prefect fit. Maybe the bruises aren't so bad after all.
Update: You can now buy one of these babies at Firebox.com! The official website can be found here.
Side-note: My guest blogger, Timmy wanted to let you guys know that, 'I haven't posted anything recently. This is because I have, like Delta, been really busy, bombarded by difficulties in my schoolife. I'm hoping to submit some news by the end of the week though.
