But Please Don’t Bruise It
This Is Part 1 of a 2-Part Post on Banana Safety

I always thought that bananas came with their own holders: banana peels. Little did I know that banana peels need sheathing in order for the delicate banana inside to be considered properly prepared for transport. All this time, I’ve been so careless with my banana, just shoving it into whatever pocket seemed convenient, without the proper protection.

Introducing the Banana Holder

If you’re interested in keeping your banana safe – and who isn’t –  there are several products that offer more than adequate protection. Let’s start with this: the plastic Banana Holder. The plastic Banana Holder will give your banana ample protection, while still allowing it to breathe.

Now and then, you probably want to slip your banana into something soft and comfortable. And for that, there’s the Banana Cozy.

The cozy offers minimal support, with maximum soothing comfort.  It’s the perfect reward at the end of a long, hard day.

With a banana holder, a flexible protector, and a banana cozy, you’d think you’d be ready for anything. Well, what if you’re not wearing any pants, and thus have no pockets? What if you’re wearing bike shorts? It’s hard enough to fit what God gave you – let alone a banana – into those skintight bastards, with or without protection. What can a guy do?
