    I just learned the banana peel thing was propaganda because poor people kept throwing them all over NYC back in the day. haha

  2. ha ha…yup haven’t seen all this happen in real!

  3. And on the flip side, things that happen in real life that are rarely if ever shown in films: awkward sex, going to the toilet, getting huge blisters because of stupid shoes, getting caught by charity people in the street, pins and needles, people who aren’t skinny or overweight but just normal… The list can go on!

    Hahaha! This really made my day!
    You are right: I never saw someone slip on a banana peel, but yesterday I did learn how to open a banana properly. This might seem irrelevant, but it isn’t.

    That last one is hilarious! Right on with the second too.

  6. Indeed. Other things; alien invasions. Never happened. Actually, people being punched and it makes that sort of “DUUUSSHHH!!!!!” sound. This does not happen in the real world. People seem to pass out very easily in films through slaps, punches, and other such guff… and, of course, have you ever seen the way a sleeping character wakes up in a film? They’re awake and out of bed and on their way in about 10 seconds.

    Haha! I love the last one!

  8. I love the 2nd one and I HATE it when movies play that card.

  9. hahah! This is brilliant! I love the last one – Good work !

  10. The Cutter says:

    My wife and I really hated each other for awhile, so it does happen sometimes.

  11. a2dave says:

    One time I saw a banana peel lying on a patch of ice right outside the doorway to a building. I thought, “Man. That’s just asking for trouble.”

  12. Haha found these pretty funny because I actually slipped on a Banana peel in Kindergarten and started bleeding profusely after slamming my head against the edge of a table (Ok its not so much HA HA funny as war story funny ; p) – Plus in College I actually used to think my girlfriend was a total bitch before we dated for like a year ; p

    I suppose the Ihate you turned into love scenario is about as common as love at first sight. But at least the latter one includes people knowing each other before they love each other… 😛

  14. And when people are having sex in movies and the woman ALWAYS has a really pretty bra on!
    p.s. Love these!

  15. toxictimes says:

    This is perfect! Might I add, getting stranded somewhere like an elevator or airport with a drop dead gorgeous companion. How unfortunate!

  16. pynkkashmere says:

    If you want to see awkward sex, watch Girls on HBO. Agree a million times on the waking up. Hell, it takes me 15 minutes to throw the covers off of me.

  17. Solveig says:

    I don’t get it, what are you guys talking about?! ALL of these things happen to me ALL THE TIME!!!

  18. Crazy Goblin says:

    Well, this certainly puts movies in a different perspective 😉

  19. Nope, I’ve never seen those things in real life either! Great post!

  20. Sophie Naz says:

    Slipping on a banana peel can be taken further! What about slipping on anything remotely rotund in shape… like marbles or gumdrops. In one film someone slipped over LEGOS! LEGOS I SAY! You don’t slip over those. You break down and cradle your foot weeping.

  21. godtisx says:

    LOLOL. No. None of that happens to the extremes we see in movies… haha. Least from what I’ve experienced.

  22. Bahaha. I just caught this before I ventured off to bed. SO funny! 🙂

    This blog is going up on my front page 🙂

  23. Ah, so true. If only a kid’s poorly planned out attempts to resolve a conflict brewing since before he was born was enough to settle years of resentment and dissatisfaction then I think the divorce rate would be restricted to those couples who don’t have such sensitive children.

    Reblogged this on .

    I HAVE actually seen someone slip on a banana peel…unfortunately, I was alone at the time and no one believed me when I told them (sidenote: It was HILARIOUS). Thanks for checking out my blog – your cartoons are great!

  26. Fantastic – that one really made me laugh! 😀

  27. Siddhartha says:

    In india you do find banana peels and people do slip to em..! Alot..! 😀

  28. K. Lee Ellis says:

    haha so true! How about the fact that no one ever says “goodbye” on the phone in movies, but if you just hung up on people in real life they’d call you a bitch!

    P.S. Thanks for following my blog. I love yours- unique and (obviously) funny

  29. Jennwith2ns says:

    Okay so . . . oddly enough, I HAVE seen the boy-meets-girl, hate-love scenario, AND the kid feeling responsible for parents’ divorce (but not the second half of that equation). I was actually IN the first one for a while. Many years ago. Although it didn’t amount to much . . .
