Amazon sells a banana-shaped banana slicer called the Hutzler 571 Banana Slicer.
For some reason that’s better left undiscovered, the user-contributed reviews for the Hutzler 571 Banana Slicer on Amazon.com are wonderfully absurd.
You must read them now.
This is no joking matter, you must read them now.
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!

What could be more fun for a little kid than getting to drift off to sleep in your own amazing spaceship? That’s the feeling five year old Finn must get each night, ever since his dad used some old discarded TV broadcast gear to create this fantastic spaceship bed.
The panel is a Grass Valley video switcher, which a friend of Finn’s dad had fished out of a dumpster behind a local TV station. It probably cost the TV station more than the price of a house when it was new, but today it’s apparently worth nothing. Don’t tell that to Jeremiah Gorman, who used the switcher to make the spaceship control panel.
I totally want this, just not as the master bed — I’d never get a wink of sleep.

Great news for anyone who’s ever dreamed of their boring desk lamp coming to life as their lovable sidekick. Inspired by the animated Luxo lamp that greets moviegoers at the start of every Pixar film, Adam Ben-Dror, Shanshan Zhou, and Joss Doggett created the Pinokio lamp which moves and reacts to its environment with what appears to be genuine emotions.
It’s similar the Pixar’s Luxo Junior but with more awesome.

Each year, Craigslist users across the country flag their favorite classified ads for inclusion in the “best of” category. The bar to inclusion is high, but somehow each year America comes through with memorable postings that remind us just why we went ahead with this whole Web 2.0 thing.
This year was no exception.
If you don’t browse the best of craigslist, you’re hilarity is not ensuing.
