Peanut Butter Jelly Time
10. It's Peanut Butter Jelly Time
OK, fine, it was cute once: ridiculously wacky online animations that appeared to have been created under the heavy influence of mind-altering substances. And it was sort of fun to send them to all your friends over instant message.
But if I have to hear "It's peanut butter jelly time!" chanted over and over again, I might barf. The video of a dancing banana, created by two guys with too much spare time, emerged on the Offtopic.com forums sometime in 2002 and grew mainstream enough for references on network TV shows "Ed" and "Family Guy." It also may or may not have been behind why it seems like more people go through the humiliation of putting on banana costumes at Halloween these days.
