What happens if your banana bends the other way?

15th Sep 2005, 20:19
I don't see a CE-mark on it...does it meet the EU specs for size and curvature? :E :ooh:

You know how it is, you toss and turn all night, wondering how you are going to protect that banana in transit...

A cricket cup works quite well if you're that worried.

Ginger :p

Do you mean a cricket box?

I do, yes. I think they might call it a cup in the US. I must have got confused because I speak fluent American ;) .

do mean you verbalize non-race specific English?

From Lakeland, the home of solutions looking for a problem, the same thing in a more suitable colour.

Assuming your banana is yellow not pink.

But does it come in different sizes?, from what I have heard the standard size of a banana varies across Europe and the world with some countries not allowing them to bent or be too straight.

I love really big ones and let them go brown and spotty for full flavour but I know others like them differently

They may be of use but can't see a man using a pink/yellow ones as they are real girls colours.

TnT :p

They may be of use but can't see a man using a pink one a real girls colour. What, are you saying a real man would want A BIG BLACK ONE? :O :8 :\

I thought I'd seen everything when I saw a French Fries holder for cars in the store the other day.. and now they make protectors for bananas :rolleyes:

Try this one & note the different colours available!

The "FAQ" is worthwhile reading!

Onan - I'm not sure if that's possible, or whether I understand the question :) .

Do they vibrate?

16th Sep 2005, 13:57
"Do they vibrate?"

Isn't nine colours, including glow in the dark, enough?

16th Sep 2005, 16:23
Q: "Is there a battery attachment?"
A: No. The Banana Guard was designed for its intended purpose only as a device to prevent banana trauma during transport.

That's got to be a pi$$ take!

can you order them individually or do they come in bunches?

16th Sep 2005, 19:13
My banana-guard slipped out of a tear in my jeans
yesterday whilst I was at Waitrose ' deli-counter.

I tried to explain to the officer but................... :uhoh:

All you need is two apple protectors and you've got the set.
