This silly fad may be the fruit of all evil.

Okay, that's a little harsh, but considering the chance of sustaining injury, then, yes, this may indeed be bad news.

The #bananapeelchallenge, in which -- just as the name indicates -- people slip on a banana peel -- has taken off.

Twitter user Jason Oakes appears to have started the trend this past weekend.

You can see Oakes' video resonated with people who decided to try it for themselves.

What do you think? Is this funny or just a really dumb way to hurt yourself for no good reason?
