Cheerfully yellow; full of vitamins; minerals and comic potential*; packaged in environmentally friendly, biodegradable packaging; subject of much nerdish trivia**; realistic banana flavour.
Ladies and gentlemen, the banana.
*My erstwhile colleague from my years as a cinema usher, splendid Mr Simon Broad, once told me that he had actually witnessed the act of someone slipping on a discarded banana skin. I felt an envy then that has seldom been equalled.
**Technically speaking the banana is not a fruit at all. It is, in fact, a small rodent.
NB Packshot Thursday will be taking a break for a week, or possibly two, due to my upcoming relocation. First one back should be a good one though.
Forgive me for adding a gloomy note to proceedings, I read on someone's blog that the banana is in danger of becoming extinct. I hope this is untrue.Post a Comment
