I don't know why but I love reading Amazon reviews...

One night, my friends and colleagues and I were talking about several joke-products, which I will not even reference here. But this discussion spurred other products, such as the banana slicer. So my friend, Thomas Deneuville, sends this to me:

Below are some images products that I think are funny. I guess I am a semi-geek because this is what I do for entertainment, read funny reviews, lol.

Okay, this is before a lot of people's time, unless they are bringing Knight Rider and or Baywatch back. I guess this is where all the hours of watching television media really pays off:

Now, what I want to know is why the banana slicer has close to ~1,600 reviews averaged 4.5 star-ratings, yet a used version is listed as $0.01 + $3.99 for shipping:

Now I am assuming that the product managers were probably so happy with their profits and these reviews, that they decided to create a strawberry slicer. Now, I want a version for plantains because the banana flavor is a little too strong for me. Does the strawberry version have a special latch that can remove the stems before slicing?

And there was some discussion that these reviews might be fake, but who cares? I hope those do get paid for providing me free entertainment.
