Who knew the sneakiness of this tropical, yet radioactive, temptation?
Blog reader, Les, took time from the Netflix Wars to send a photo.
He scanned the picture I posted with his machine called Photoshop and shared it with us.
Then we asked Mr. Tallyman, who has handled many famous clients like Chiquita (and who speaks fluent banana) to unpeel a few of the more notorious banana lies:
Bananas cure hangovers
If this were true, I’d be knocking back banana daiquiris right now without any regrets.
If you eat too many bananas the radioactivity will change you, just as it altered Godzilla and the Hulk
Partially true. Bananas live secret lives as stool softeners. So if you gorge on them, you’ll change. You’ll lose some weight, not expand into super monster proportions.
Bananas grow on trees.
No, even though they grow to a 15-25 foot height, those sneaky bananas refuse to put on a woody trunk, in order to maintain their sinless “plant” status.
Note: the grouping that grows on trees is called a “hand.” And a single banana is called a “finger”.
A LIE IF THERE EVER WAS ONE.
Bananas are guileless fruits
A parent worries that a bad influence can affect their child. Right?
Well, in Banana World, these same concerns exist. The yellow-fingered treats can manipulate the younger generation.
Put a mature, experienced ‘naner in a paper bag with some innocent, green bananas, and in just a day, those childlike greenies will transform to yellow gang-member status.
So that brought us to the hard question…
How many bananas does it take to kill you?
Unfortunately…daylight came, and Mr. Tallyman wanted to go home.
From our research it seems that too much potassium can cause heart damage and cardiac arrest. Even the world record effort for banana eating has been scaled back. (no lie)
The reason for the change was to prevent health problems or death from over-eating bananas.
The banana was such a slippery murder suspect no one was able to name the exact number of “fingers” that would be fatal. Depends on how much potassium you already have in your system.
Isn’t that just like a banana to keep you guessing?
