Well, okay, they kind of feel sorry for the guy, too. So they set a goal. If their post about the man received 26,000 Faceboook likes, they would offer to buy the banana for $2,600. If it got 30,000 likes, they would buy the man’s family an Xbox. In this scenario, everyone wins, they noted:
Henry gets his money back, we get to look like good Samaritans when really we just want a giant stuffed banana with dreads sitting in our office, commenters can be like “How Stoopid waz this guy SMH”, etc., so everybody wins!
Not to mention, thirty thousand people post about CollegeHumor on their Facebook walls when they hit that “Like” button. That helps. The score just passed 30,000 likes while I was writing this post, so congratulations to the man for having his terrible decisions validated, and to CollegeHumor on their new acquisition.
My colleagues here at Consumerist’s Albany bureau and I took up a collection, and the best counter-offer we can make for the banana is $10 in cash and a half-chewed rawhide bone. (My colleagues are dogs.) More power to you, CollegeHumor.
