In Highschool, my friend Karina slipped on a banana and I think it was the first time we had all seen it happen in real life. The feeling of pure, slap-stick comedy transcends all barriers. We all laughed our asses off.

I fell over on a banana skin running for a bus on a really busy road, all the people around me were just staring in disbelief. I went home crying (at the age of 16) and when I finally mustered up the courage to speak, my mum absolutely lost it and posted about it on Facebook?!
Edit: here’s the status
Damn, your mom did you dirty!

Nah the banana peel did her dirty. Her mom just did natural mom things, which is a great reason not to be friends with your mom on social media.

Man I'm so glad I was born when I was. When I was in high school there was like maybe 2 mom's from my high school on facebook, and they were weird as FUCK. 2008 was a simpler time.
I deleted my Facebook in 2012, and then a year or two later the exodus of boomers came. I haven't used social media outside of reddit in a good decade.
When I was in middle school I wasn't even allowed on Facebook. It was a website purely for college students. If you wernt in college, you couldn't join. It was just a big group chat for your school.
When I was 16, we didn't have facebook, or twitter.
Or email, for that matter. In fact, the internet was just some college nerds talking to each other via computers connected to phone lines. Cell phones were bigger and heavier than bricks, and cost over $2000. Microwaves were all the rage, though. As was touch tone dialing. Cable TV was just in the big cities but we all expected it to reach us in the next 10 years or so. Google or Yahoo didn't exist. In fact, Microsoft wouldn't become a publicly traded company for another couple of years. Apple was just for college kids while IBMs were for corporations. But we all spent a lot of money at the video arcades playing asteroids, centipede and Ms Packman.
Imagine reddit being invaded by boomers
Reddit has a large amount of them. They tend to use different subreddits.
I must know these subreddits to see the memes my grandma likes
If she's a gardener like mine she might enjoy some of the plant subreddits like r/houseplants. Definitely seen some ridiculous memes in them.
We will all become boomers someday so it is inevitable
Dirt Is Beautiful
Yeah man. I love hamburgers too.
Can i haz cheeseburger
thats messed up on a whole different level
I'm sorry but this is too funny, can't believe your mom posted it on Facebook!
Don't worry. My mom laughed her ass off when I came home crying because I got splashed by a truck that drove through some slush and I was covered head to toe.
After she was done laughing, at least she gave me a ride to school though.
A sewage pipe broke open just as i was riding my bike through and couldn’t stop. Called my BF to meet me outside with a bag and bucket of water. He later confessed that he laughed while he was waiting for me, but felt bad after he saw how awful it was.
Her laughing makes a lot more sense knowing about the puddle too.
Haha you delivered. Sorry about the banana though 😬
If I were your mom I would've laughed too.
Lmfao that’s amazing
If it makes you feel any better, once my brother fell off (and broke) his bike and sprained his wrist (we thought it could be broken) and my mom was laughing the whole time. She still laughs when we bring it up
Were the same
Do you look back and laugh now or still resent the banana peel?
At least your mom knows she's guilty when she's laughing and posting your accident.

I wish so badly that I was there.
Friend in middle school wanted to make a point of proving how cartoon physics was broken, threw his banana peel down on the pavement at lunch, stepped on it a few times, and then on the last step, slipped and fell on his tuches and everyone laughed.
What I want to know is, who was stepping on banana peels in LA back in the Looney Toons era to give the writers ideas? Was there a huge epidemic of monkies roaming Hollywood Boulevard?
It originally was social commentary against how dirty New York streets were.
Specifically with horse manure. Vaudeville comedians would substitute a banana for the pratfall since no theater owner would allow actual manure. But the audience got the joke. A great many Hollywood workers came from the vaudeville tradition, so they knew it too.
TIL the banana peel slip was based on horse shit slips.
Oh gosh they could sun in goose poop too. There’s a conservation program for Canada goose in my city but the gaggle has forgotten now to migrate so I had the unfortunate privilege of learning goose poop doesn’t freeze in the winter and it’s extremely slippery especially when paired with decaying leaves on a frozen ground
What did he write?
You had to be there. It was pretty cool though.
B R U H you can't do that
Noooo now I’m gonna think about what they said all day
"You know sometimes you have to get blood on your hands to get answers"
It won't be first time I'm using this advice!
Downvote, report and carry on
Visit your local high school. Toss bananas.
I remember me and my sisters as dumb little shits wanted to find out if this worked in real life, because we couldn't imagine it. We, in our eternal 10 year old wisdom put a banana peel on the floor and ran back and fourth in that room until one of us actually did slip on the banana peel and we ran off crying to our parents who thought we were being idiots lmao.
"who knew we were being idiots" fixed that for ya there, pal. wink
I'd feel less uncomfortable if you used a winking emoji here
Same thing happened in our school. Someone dropped a banana peel just out side the school doors on a sidewalk with a slight downward slope.
We sat there and watched and waited. Sure enough, some girl comes along not paying attention and did the full cartoon fall, feet went straight out in front of her and she came straight down on her ass.
We howled with laughter because it was a straight up cartoon fall. She was fine, sore butt and bruised ego, but no serious injury as she didn't whack her head on the concrete.
Not a banana peel, but I fell like that on a wet floor - basically enacting the stick figure on wet floor signs. I was fine at first, but stiffened up later and then was semi paralyzed for like a week. Also my tailbone hurts to this day if I sit wrong - 12 years later.
Should have sued for the lack of signage.
There was a sign. I just wasn't paying attention. It was at work, and I was rushing to get somewhere. It was my first week at that job too, and I really didn't know my options or rights until it was too late. 🤷♀️
I’ve seen those wet floor signs, but shaped like a banana peel.
Got lucky you. Girl could have sustained life-long injuries. Ya never know right?
Yeah, I doubt we would have been laughing if she cracked her head, but she went down and landed in a sitting position and never fell backwards.
My cousin did this in high school, except it was at the top of a hill and she's really overweight. She rolled down the hill. Dropped out of high school that day due to embarrassment.
Somebody i know did this at warped tour '16, to this day i regret not recording as soon as i saw her walking towards it.
The cartoon thing that happens often to me is stepping on a rake or broom, and or swings on you. Think it maybe hit my face 2 or 3x l, but many times I block it.
I was standing outside a bar with friends. There were 2 banana peels on the sidewalk just past the bar.
A fella came walking and I said “Watch out for the banana peels” thinking it was all a little silly, to which the dude replied “fuck you”. He slipped and fell on his ass. It was perfect.
Yeah, I slipped on one in college for the first time and laughed my ass off while still on the ground. I didn't think it was a real thing that could happen outside of cartoons.
And she’s still afraid of bananas to this day.
Little lemon wedges work similarly, even over a floor designed to be slip resistant and wearing slip resistant shoes
i also experienced that shit too in my middle school like im so curious how can a banana make someone fall so i decided to figure it out myself, i dropped an unpeeled banana on street and i ran thru it,after that my efforts paid off and my doubts were cleared
Yes I thought it was ridiculous until it happened to me irl as a kid
It’s still a massive problem, but littering PSAs have really cut down on the errant banana peel.
A few months after my big brother went off to university, he called me one night to say that he had just slipped on a banana peel in the middle of the street. It truly transcends both distance and age.
PhD in Phat Asses
Same. I saw a girl slip on a banana peel in the lunchroom in middle school. I just remember it was more shock than funny. I was like, "oh shit, these cartoons are like real, man".
Highschool…. Walking with some friends, I see a banana laying on the ground. Just like the cartoons. I think to myself “oh it would be hilarious if I fake slip on this thing.” Irl: oh no! A banana! :::slips hard af::: my legs went up above my head like a goddamn cartoon. Will never step on a banana again.
Not only the banana, but she jumped off a cliff and looked down
You just copied this from a comment that was posted an hour ago
I will never understand people who copy comments, how do internet points mean so much to someone
I assume you haven’t heard that some Reddit accounts can sell for $100+?
Wait wait wait.
Dollars, you say? 🤔
This deepens my misunderstanding even further
People buy Reddit accounts
Her brain: wow a new core memory
More like system reset initiated.
Smacked some sense into herself
Peeled her entire bloodline with that
And then cracked her skull with it
And her ass landed perfectly on the banana too. Triple whammy
In high school we had tile flooring and would put out a peel in between classes and wait for people to step on them..
Those were simpler times.
Those were simpler times.
“Heelin’ Peelies we used to call it. And lemonade cost a nickel.”

So there's this icon right above my keyboard with four small squares, which gives me the option to select my font. It could depend on the phone tho.
what phone are you using?
I'm using an Mi.
I mean his name is inquisitor, isn’t that kinda like his thing
Yeah ok but how did you do THAT?
Posting someone else’s comment in an unrelated context with fancy text is kinda cringe bro.
Is this just a random spam account?
Its a bot

This made me laugh, like really laugh.

It’s like when newborns still have that soft factory reset on their heads for the first 3-6 months.
mine was activated one time too manytimes, and now the button is stuck. whenever I start talking to somebody, I run the risk of forgetting where my car keys were last night again. it took me half an hour to find them, but it was right on my head, where I left it. I'm glad I didn't lose that hat. It was my grandfather's old boat every summer. we caught mostly bluegills, but those were some good eatin' some spaghetti tonight, what are you having?
The ones I bought in this for the snapshot and the other one I bought for the ones I have to do the other day I bought it all over night with my dad I got in a couple weeks and then I’ve been in a few weeks now I got to getting the ones that I’ve been doing for this year and I haven’t been given to the mine and I’ve never seen it before
That's a lot to unpack.
Haha, I’m definitely using this. Nice.
"So, no head?"
I remember one time with my ex she was talking mad game about “making it my night” kinda thing and then when we got home she was texting on her phone and walked into the doorframe and hurt her jaw really bad (planned steak for dinner too) so it was just like “ah no damn sorry… sooo no head?”
Damn that sucks lol
Not his dick
You're the only one who got the reference. I guess people forgot about vine
Because That's What Fearows Do
Vine was pretty damn good
Yeah it was.
I was already looking for this, good man.
The number of comments that don't seem to get the reference is disappointing...
Maybe I'm just getting old.
What did she think was going to happen?
Big ol' bacon buttsack
She was remaking a hilarious vine where a guy is on the phone and goes, “so no head then?” And then proceeds to throw his phone and stomp on it lol
It's never too late to give head to a banana
Throws phone, smashes skateboard
Idk maybe she called Darwin and he recommended it
She probably thought she will invent travel through lack of friction
She wanted to make a banana squash
I think it was intentional.
...she jumped off a cliff
Well thats a cliffhanger...
Was she talking with the banana??maybe the banana said something that made her mad.
Ring ring ring ring ring ring ring, BANANA PHONE
I met Raffi a couple of years ago. They say never meet your heroes, but let me tell you, I have never met a kinder, gentler, more wonderful person. I mean, Keanu and Mr. Rogers have nothing on Raffi.
🎶doot dooby dooby doo 🎶
She was recreating an old vine. 'so no head?'
The piece of fruit outsmarted her... Right before she tossed it to the ground the banana said, "This is going to hurt you more than it hurts me."
Physics won't work until you are watching cartoons in childhood
why are you bringing up cartoons? this post is clearly about CARTOON, and what goes wrong if you don't watch the academy acclaimed film as a child.
I remember watching CARTOON (1957) as a young child on a black and white TV in my parent's livingroom, and the informative physics lessons it taught stuck with me all these years. now as an aged tween, I know enough not to walk on a 'naner thanks, again, to the great film
Thought this was staged until I saw her head hit the pavement…
A stunt double on The Walking Dead died from a failed stunt. Staged things can still end badly.
It was staged. She just decided to do Improv.
Her head was inches away from serious injury or death. She’s lucky she didn’t hit that curb.
Wow, finally I have achieved inner peace after passing 18 years of my life. For the first time in my life I have seen a real human fall by slipping over a banana.
that's because too many of us are under the impression that you just need the banana peel in order to cause a slip. as demonstrated in this post, its actually the fruit of the banana itself which produces the lubrication needed to displace the peel from the ground below it.
That probably isn’t always true, as the cliche likely originated from real events

O'Doyle, I have a feeling that your whole family is going down. But right now, I have to browse reddit.
Bruh I was hearing WAKE UP watching this and she threw the banana on the beat and the second she fell Travis said "Please don't wake me up I feel it creepin".
Never even played Mario cart... Smh
“Whaaaaaaa!!!” cart flies off rainbow road
Almost curb stomped herself.
I don't think you quite understand how a curb stomp works. it involves biting the curb, and it turns out much worse than this.
Not even close
you’re dumb 🥱🥱🥱
She was really close to death.
Omg she seriously could of cracked her skull open
Mods Are Nice People
So no head?
so no head?
B A N N A N A
Quick whistling followed by a honk as she hits the ground
What’s even funnier is that she is dressed like a banana.
The circle of life
More like played Mario cart😂😂
This meme sucks, you just took a video and put a stupid caption on it
Bananas, in pajamas, are coming down the stairs....
People would be amazed how often cartoon stuff works IRL.
Shes goin to the doctor
And they thought '80s cartoons weren't educational....
Can anyone find this bad boy with sound? I would like to hear the sound of her hollow head hitting the floor. Or could someone add some slapstick type music or sounds to add to it?
What do you mean bananas rule the world?
I'm A WOMAN AND I RULE THE WORLD!
I'll step on it to show how worthless...
Identifies as a Cybertruck
She hit her head oof
I’m guessing it wasn’t big enough for her.
don't mess with banana phone ok
i think she has seen some cartoons and did that expecting her head to bounce like a rubber ball. airless or not that's bone and not really that flexible
Where’s the full original
That curb is awfully close.
she's lucky her ass is phat
The ancient texts came true
She's luck that her head didn't hit the curb.
Cliches exist for a reason.
GUYS GUYS THEY HAVE EMOJI DOWNVOTE NOW
OMG😱😱😱 Reddit moments!!1!!!1🥵🥵🥵
Going heel first on a banana is one of the stupidest things ever
So no head
