Who can forget the banana slicer that gave way to some of the most knee-slapping, hilarious reviews ever to be posted in the whole of Amazon's history? Well, it looks like it's got some company.

Some of us remember the Egg Wave and its sidekick, the Bacon Wave. Stahp.

Plus, if I'm feelinglazy, I'll just buy a bag of pre-shredded cabbage and keep my fingers, thanks.
