Banana Shenanigans

When I read about the Banana Guard this week, I thought it seemed familiar. Well, a quick search of my old web site, and sure enough, I linked to their fine product in December 2004.

I'm interested in this idea, because I take a banana to work every day as a snack. But now that I ride the bus, it gets a bit abused in my backpack. I've often thought of a banana guard when buying my produce, but the wide variety of banana shapes made me think it's impractical.

So I was reading the FAQ on their site, which states that 90% of commercially available bananas will fit in their guard. Tucked neatly into their answer is the key: sometimes you have to bend them to fit. Cheaters.
