Someone Is Scratching Creepy Messages Into Banana Peels For People To Find

There is one thing humans are always trying to do and that’s freak each other out. Just look at what we do with clowns. If something innocent and sweet can be turned towards evil ends, we will. Take, for instance, the banana.

Writer and producer Kevin Biegel has introduced a new element of fear to the preferred fruit of toddlers and the potassium-deficient. He takes a harmless, ordinary banana, scratches a haunting message into it. Then…he waits.

At first the message is barely visible:

Kids are already afraid of fruits and vegetables, anyway.

But for the Olds, there’s a new fun game called #90sAnsweringMachineMessages for you. It’s pretty much what it sounds like. What’s a message you would leave or receive on your old message machine? What did people get when they called you and no one answered? A ton of nostalgic references, that’s what.

You may know some of these:

Though some people are sharing more literally what their voicemail message actually was in the 1990s:

Others had a warning from the future:

They also referred to some specific other technologies time forgot:

But my personal favs now are the same as they were then:

If only someone would call…
