Banana clips: Does anyone here remember/ like them?

Ok, I know that banana clips are way out of style and are just a thing of the 80's at this point, but for those of you that remember them or are familiar with them, do you honestly think they are ugly and just too old-fashioned looking to the point that they should never come back in style?

I honestly wish they would come back, to be honest. I always thought they look cool, and I still think so. But, I'm sure a lot of people wouldn't agree with me (especially straight-haired people)....at least that's what I'm seeing after searching through forums on yahoo answers. I think that banana clips can compliment curly hair in a beautiful way.

Opinions?

I still use them. I bought some at a store last year.
I wear what I like and don't worry too much about what other people think.

Holy only 80's, I used to wear banana clips in my Jheri Curl. I definitely would wear them again though.

I wouldn't be surprised to see them come back. There are tons of 18 y.o. running around thinking they are so originally fashionable wearing their brightly colored leggings, socks in pumps, leg warmers and such.

I would be the happiest person on earth if they would come back in style. I loved my hair then. THEN.

When I was a kid I tried them, but they never held all my hair and always broke.

I still wear them when I blow dry my hair. I can't get it through my hair when it's curly.

I could never get those things to look right in my hair. Used to be so jealous of women with gorgeous curls who wore them, though.

I LOVED banana clips. They always made your ponytails look longer and fuller. I'd wear one now.

I could never get all my hair in a banana clip. They just weren't big enough. I have a TON of hair. TWO tons maybe. So it wouldn't do me any good if they came back in style.

I saw a lady wearing two the other day like pigtails. It looked a bit odd but they're definitely in stores.

I had something that were wide half ovals with teeth that locked together. Those were the only thing I could wear. The actual banana clips were too wimpy even though I have fine thinnish hair.

I remember being soo jealous of my sister because she used them and they looked soo pretty on her. I was jealous because even though we both have curly hair I am the one with the super thick bushy hair and while she could wear banana clips I couldn't. No lie, within 5 minutes the clip would pop off in my hair. My hair was too thick. Which is when I began my life long love affair with cloth scrunchies.

Sorry no, I would never wear them again.

If a news story breaks and no one on the Internet comments, did it really happen?
I had a few back in the day that I never could keep in my hair. No, I would not wear them again.

If you guys want to go ahead and try for a come-back, go ahead, it would be interesting to see if it works.

OMG I hated those!!!! My adpted mom used to make me wear them all the time, and they would get so unbelievably tangled in my hair. I would get so much hair ripped out trying to get those stupid things off my head.
