I'm tempted to contribute to the comments, but I'm so busy with this damn banana! Hutzler 571 Banana Slicer (http://www.amazon.com/Hutzler-5717-571-Banana-Slicer/dp/B0047E0EII/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1358269684&sr=8-1&keywords=hutzler+571+banana+slicer)

That first review is genius!

But as a woman, I'm not liking the look of that strawberry slicer........

A banana slicer:roll: for for ex-cons :ROFL: with anger :roll: issues? :ROFL: :roll: :ROFL: Genius. I love that review.

Further proof of the decline of Western civilization. People too lazy to slice a banana the traditional way! People probably too witless to figure out which end of the knife to use!

Don't even get me started on the strawberry slicer....

"Ordering one for my nephew who's in the air force in California. He's been using an old slinky..." :ROFL: :roll:

In srs mode though, I fo realz have the strawberry slicer and it's brilliant! When I make my icebox cake it is VERY IMPORTANT that the strawberry garnishes are sliced http://s283.beta.photobucket.com/user/Lazraleen/media/strawberries_zpsabbf989b.jpg.html

Using a paring knife to do this made my thumbs very nervous, so I for one appreciate having the individual sections of my strawberry garnishes sliced in an equitable, aesthetically pleasing manner.

Someday I will have my own kitchen to fill with my beautiful, overly-specialized gadgets.

I bet the other moms in the pick up lane in front of the school are wondering why I'm laughing like a hysterical idiot right now.

:ROFL: Thank you! How on earth did you find it?

Dreity, your strawberries are beautiful. Things of beauty!

And I can totally see the banana slicer, but that's because I hate banana slime getting on my hands ;)

I must get my sister these things. She has OCD and likes to line up the soda bottles in stores according to actual liquid level. Before buying, she also has to find the one with the most in it (by a millimeter, yes. Why do you ask?). Having the banana slices all match is something I know she'd appreciate, really :) :D

Banana's bent the wrong way :D Genius!

Thank you! How on earth did you find it? A writer friend posted it on Facebook last night and I just had to share.

The pictures are funny too.

I can beat this...

Veet For Men

These people should be professional comedy writers.

Have you people not seen the 55 gallon drum of lube on Amazon?

I hesitate to comment on recent posts... and yes, there are other items with similar zany reviews. At least for this (and especially the Denon product) we're lucky Amazon doesn't limit reviews to Amazon purchasers (as was advocated in another thread), else we would be without the works of these fascinating writers. There's the Bic Cristal pen (there's several entries for different colors and quantities, you'll find the one), the Denon AKDL1 digital hifi cable, and the item most infamous for its reviews (at least in my mind), a rich scientist hides away writing for ten years, then self-publishes:

This thread has made my morning. :D

I live just 30 miles from the coast, so I'm seriously considering getting a copy of this: http://www.amazon.com/Avoid-Huge-Ships-John-Trimmer/dp/0870334336/ref=pd_sbs_k_15

It's not Amazon, but the reviews of this ice cube recipe on Food.com (http://www.food.com/recipe/ice-cubes-420398) are awesome.

01-16-2013, 03:59 PM

Ah, so the same thought crossed your mind as well!

01-16-2013, 06:17 PM
I wish every book review had one of these with them...what if?

My culinary rule is:

If I don't want to touch it, I'm not eating it.

My most recent favourite: Bic for Girls (http://www.amazon.com/BIC-Cristal-1-0mm-Black-MSLP16-Blk/dp/B004F9QBE6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1358352859&sr=8-1&keywords=bic+for+girls). Pity it got so popular, since some of the reviews aren't half as funny as they think they are, but the first few are still pretty damn good.
