Okay, this story is bananas.

Today, Chrissy Teigen turned to the internet for grocery shopping help and, apparently, the internet was more than happy to oblige.

Chrissy, Twitter's fun neighbor from downstairs, knocked on everyone's virtual door looking for six brown bananas to aid in her in making banana bread. And, of course, people from here to Holland were quick to offer their bananas. Folks were pressed!

I'm not hating. You better believe I jumped in a Lyft and ran up in Trader Joe's screaming "Bring me your most mottled fruit! It's a celebrity emergency."

I am actually impressed by the number of people on the internet who just have brown bananas chilling in their houses at this moment. Is everyone making bread or are we all just too ambitious about how many fruits and veggies we're planning on eating. Normally, I'd force myself to eat anything that's starting to turn but now I'm going to hold on to it all just in case a celebrity needs it. Hey, Armie Hammer, if you need a peach that has seen better days, holla atcha boy.

This Chrissy Teigen banana situation shut down the internet for 30 minutes. It was virtual Let's Make a Deal meets The Secret. This is how the internet is supposed to work. It's like the old adage goes: "If you want something, tell the universe and then send your assistant to Topanga Canyon to get it for you."

It's especially ironic that Chrissy is the one doing this since a little while back she helped McDonald's celebrate the launch of McDelivery. She is well aware that you can log on to any number of sites to get pretty much anything brought to your doorstep.

I guess brown bananas are a little bit more specific than a Big Mac and large fries, though, so I'll allow it. Of course, three pop-up shops exclusively offering past-it's-prime fruit for the celebrity on the go will probably open in L.A.

Chrissy, God bless her, has been taking this banana stand for a few days now. It started with a more philosophical query:

Then came today's request. Followed by modifications that could best be described as a kidnapper's demands:

And finally, the happy ending all of America has been waiting for.

There are bananas in the Teigen-Legend house today and bread in the oven. Carb crisis averted! Take us off of Red Alert, Admiral Grapes. We'll all sleep a little bit better tonight.
