If you’ve ever thrown a banana in your backpack and retrieved it later, bruised and abused, you can see how a hard banana carrying case could be a good investment. Groupon’s Banana Bunkers, however, are clear. Clear banana carrying cases look like banana condoms.

Groupon’s Facebook fans also think the plastic cases resemble dildos and are commenting with some amazing sex jokes. The best part is that Groupon is responding to every single one.

FWIW, Groupon sold more than 570 three-packs of the Banana Bunkers ($8.99) and they are now sold out. That’s a social media strategy done right.
