asativum commented on the word banana splits
The time intervals between the four stages of slipping on a banana peel: loss of friction, hang-time, spit-take, and of course the thud, or finish. World-class competitors aim for a clean, quick start, symmetrical and full -- but not prolonged -- follow-through in the middle splits, and as short a thud as possible. Banana Splitting, or BS, is being considered as a demonstration sport for the 2016 summer Olympics. The USOC's training facility, in Split, Croatia, is known among athletes as Splitsville.
