THE FRUIT STAND — Do you ever just have a hankering for something but, for one reason or another, you just can't have it?
Maybe you're dying for some chicken wings, but they just ran out at your favorite spot. Or possibly you're craving a Philly cheesesteak, but you just remembered you already had one for lunch and your heart can't take another.
Maybe, just maybe, you are hungry for a banana, but you're wearing arm floaties that make it impossible to get said banana into your mouth. That latter example is exactly what happens in this video.
This is Bub. Back in 2018, he was just a little toddler enjoying a day at the pool, hoping to take a break and enjoy a banana. That turned quest into a bit of a nightmare, however, when Bub couldn't quite get the fruit to his mouth because his arm floaties were acting as a kind of barrier.
I laughed so hard as I watched Bub fruitlessly (literally) try to eat that banana. Then I started to feel bad for him. Then I laughed again. Then I got an email and had to check it (don't worry, I gave that Nigerian prince the money he needed), and then I continued watching the video and laughed some more.
Eventually, Bub gets some help and the banana is fed to him. Suddenly, everything is once again right with the world.
Bub may be on to a new diet trend called Floatie Foodie. Basically you wear giant floaties on your arms that make it impossible to get food from your hand to your mouth, and you can slip them on whenever you're tempted by office doughnuts or that last sleeve of Oreos you've been hiding in the pantry.
