The latest teen trend sweeping the web is intentionally slipping on a banana peel, which raises a very important question: "WHY?!" The #BananaPeelChallenge began with Twitter user Jason Oakes, who wanted to see if the old cartoon clichè of people slipping on banana peels had any basis in reality. It did.

If you're wondering whether you've perhaps lost your edge and just don't "get" what "cool" is anymore, fret not: this is as dumb as it looks. Hospitals may soon be filled with teens who slipped and smashed their heads open, because the trend has blown up.
