Bananas, like lots of fruit, are natural engineering marvels. The fruit’s thick peel provides a colorful coating of armor that allows the venerable food to be transported anywhere without much fuss. Just grip and rip to get at the edible portion inside.

Groupon felt it could improve upon the banana-transporting process by introducing the Banana Bunker. Here’s the company’s description of the item, which it sells in a three-pack for $8.99 (they are now sold out, for what it’s worth):

Ripe bananas can rest easy as they nestle within these protective Banana Bunkers. A hard plastic design protects the soft fruit from getting bruised or crushed in backpacks or purses, and a collapsible midsection expands and contracts to accommodate larger or smaller specimens. The BPA-free case is also dishwasher safe to prevent new bananas from tasting like old bananas.

Noted, as these are justifiable reasons for the Banana Bunker to exist in regards to older, softer bananas. However, the product’s ripe for parody, because it makes bananas look like dildos—thick, bulging, ultra-ribbed dildos.

This fact did not escape the wonderful people who follow Groupon on Facebook.12
