The Banana Peel Challenge Is Taking Over The Internet, And It's Ridiculous


I officially don't understand kids.

I kind of understood the appeal of planking. I sort of get why hoverboards are cool. "Damn, Daniel" I was OK with. Over the past year, I have even developed an appreciation for the Kardashians that borders on a love of the whole family.

What I'm trying to say is I get Internet trends. I see why this stuff is cool, and normally I'm right there with the crowd appreciating it all. I know that makes me sound like the oldest person in the world, but screw it. I'm on fleek, Felicia LOL. Sorry.

Why did I tell you this? Because, for the life of me, I cannot wrap my brain around why the #BananaPeelChallenge is a trending Internet thing kids are doing.

Don't hurt yourself trying to figure out if #BananaPeelChallenge is code for anything else. It isn't. It's just kids filming themselves slipping on banana peels.

Like this.



Your grandparents didn't want this life for you.

You don't need to do this.

WHERE ARE ALL THE PARENTS?!?! This dumb trend is going to wipe out a generation if we all don't stop it.
