  • Me too prolagus! All of us nipple-less men should get together over a glass of banana flavored wine & support one another.

    Interestingly I'm half-Italian prolagus (on my father's side).

    April 28, 2008

  • Probably, c_b, 'cause we have nearly every other, but we haven't banana.

    April 28, 2008

  • Sorry, this comment was deleted because I've had enough of miscomprehensions on Wordie. (pardon)

    April 28, 2008

  • Neato, Mollusque! But... but why that word?

    April 28, 2008

  • Ha! I've figured out how to capitalize words in Wordie: see ΒΑ�?Α�?Α.

  • Mmmm...Circus peanuts. Worst food ever. They're great.

    April 24, 2008

  • Yes! That's it, c_b, circus peanuts were what I tried.

    Love that auntie imagery, bilby – it captures that peculiar scent perfectly.

    April 23, 2008

  • I know what frin's talking about, the things the guy at the corner shop used to use to pad out a ten-cent bag of mixed lollies. And they always had that kind of awkard perfumey smell about them, like presents for rarely-seen aunts at Christmas.

    April 23, 2008

  • Frindley, you must be talking about circus peanuts!!! OMG, I can't believe circus peanuts just came up in conversation. *laughing my ass off inside*

    April 23, 2008

  • Yes, yes. Money is the fruit of your labours. The 'love of money' is the root vegetable of all evil.

    April 23, 2008

  • Yuk, frin, I hate those lolly bananas. Our icecream van man used to use them for the mouths of the funny face icecreams and I always picked mine off and threw it away. Yuk.

    I have, however, made that particular ester.

    April 23, 2008

  • No, no, money is a root not a fruit. Root of all evil.

    April 23, 2008

  • Money is a fruit and it doesn't grow on trees. Similarly zucchini.

    April 23, 2008

  • That's what chained bear banana banshee is for. You raise your glass and propose a moist toastmaster's boast of ghost-hosting.

    April 23, 2008

  • Lolly bananas, as I call them, are usually about 5cm long, banana shaped (of course), and an opaque light yellow. They sometimes have a slightly powdery surface as if they've been lightly dusted with cornflour. They are what I'd call a fondant candy, with a texture that ranges from slightly chewy to crisp and crunchy, depending on the degree of freshness. (Some fans insist on them being fresh, others will eat only stale ones.) The flavour has nothing with bananas to do, but comes from an ester that every chemistry teacher gets you to make in high school (isopentyl acetate maybe?).

    I rather like them, but do feel quite sick if allowed to consume a whole bag of the things.

    I looked and looked when I was living in the States and never once found them, although I did once try something that was orange coloured and not banana shaped but which otherwise had the exact same texture and flavour. Can't remember what they were called.

  • Interesting bilby, a vegetable tree that hosts ghosts. Obviously they're vegetarian ghosts, which are probably the least risky type of ghost to host.

    April 23, 2008

  • I think I've seen banana-flavored candies, and they are always opaque and light yellow. And todally barfy.

    April 23, 2008

  • If there were such a thing as a banana-flavored lollipop, would it be translucent or opaque?

    April 23, 2008

  • I like this bit from the Wiki whoopie about Moringa:

    "The tree is said to host ghosts during the night. This combined with the fact that the tree attracts a host of insects make it unattractive for people to grow it in their backyards."

    No way am I having all those unlisted words on my patch, bucko.

    April 23, 2008

  • Yes, banana flowers do not smell like bananas; not like like bananas at all.

    April 23, 2008

  • Although the vegetables and fruits themselves might give you an argument. ;->

    April 23, 2008

  • As far as I know, the distinction between vegetables and fruits is just empirical and has nothing to do with biology...

    April 23, 2008

  • Here you are c_b, a vegetable tree:

    "Moringa oleifera, commonly referred to simply as Moringa, is the most widely cultivated variety of the genus Moringa. It is of the family Moringaceae. It is an exceptionally nutritious vegetable tree with a variety of potential uses." The full article is at this link:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moringa_oleifera

    A Moringa leaf served with bananas would be an epicurean delight.

    April 23, 2008

  • *barf* Not that I mind the thought of eating flowers--I have and do--but banana flowers... Wait. Bilby, do they taste or smell like bananas at all?

    Do any vegetables grow on trees? Or are those all considered fruit? *didn't go to school with plethora*

    April 22, 2008

  • Banana flowers are yummy too. They were the favourite food of my worm farm's residents.

    April 22, 2008

  • Per wikipedia plethora:

    "Although the wild species have fruits with numerous large, hard seeds, virtually all culinary bananas have seedless fruits."

    Bananas are the quintessential fruit.

    April 22, 2008

  • If bananas don't have seeds, does that make them vegetables instead of fruit?? That's how I learned to distinguish between the two as a kid.

    April 22, 2008

  • I applaud your passion, palooka, and your willingness to state it politely and respectfully in a spirit of civic discourse.

    Of course, I think you're flat-out wrong... ;)

    *sigh* I love this page.

    April 22, 2008

  • I will not sit quietly while bananas are being trashed. Sexless & sterile my foot! Bananas are a highly dynamic fruit potent with important nutrients & other vital life-giving elements.

    Bananas have rightfully been venerated throughout history by most of the world's great cultures.

    In fact, when God Himself is hungry, he peels Himself a great golden banana.

    April 21, 2008

  • My thoughts exactly.

    April 21, 2008

  • Bananas grow from suckers.

    April 21, 2008

  • Reesetee has ways, c_b. ;-)

    April 21, 2008

  • Bananas have seeds, don't they? What are those little brown things in the middle?

    April 20, 2008

  • sionnach, thanks for the link to that article. Very interesting! This was my favorite part:

    "The banana, which is a giant berry plucked from the world's largest herb, is seedless, sexless and sterile. Because banana offspring are genetically identical to their parents, it makes them all the more vulnerable to disease."

    I didn't know that about bananas. How bizarre.

    April 20, 2008

  • *wonders how the hell reesetee knew that*

    April 20, 2008

  • Now this is interesting. I may choose to include a chained_bear pineapple shy in my Travelling Festival of World Oddities, with Fruit.

    April 19, 2008

  • I have it on good authority that c_b brushes her teeth with pineapples.

    April 19, 2008

  • Not bananas.

    April 19, 2008

  • Okay, she flosses with chains. But what does she brush with?

    April 19, 2008

  • Better than having bananas in your mouth, that's for damn sure.

    April 19, 2008

  • Sure. With those big ol' teeth of yours.

    April 19, 2008

  • Think of the chains as dental floss. I certainly do.

    April 19, 2008

  • HAHAHA! This is edutainment, my friends... I had fun and learned two words. I don't ask much more for today.

    April 18, 2008

  • Some of them also tarnish.

    April 18, 2008

  • They make a lovely garnish.

    April 18, 2008

  • Yes, but what about chains?

    April 18, 2008

  • I like bears, banshees and bananas in the same drink. Shaken, not stirred. I do.

    April 18, 2008

  • Sorry, chained_bear. I didn't know you had such good reasons to hate bananas.

    April 16, 2008

  • Palooka, I never met an apple I didn't like.

    Well, that one....

    April 16, 2008

  • I hate all the Berry Corporation members. They are quickly taking control of the whole Fruit community, you know - soon, my friends, we're going to add -berry to any fruit.

    I'm having a coconberry tonight.

    April 16, 2008

  • See pearanoia.

    April 16, 2008

  • They can be schnooks reseetee, which is the flip side of winsome.

    April 16, 2008

  • I find apples winsome.

    April 16, 2008

  • Obviously you're in their thrall.

    April 16, 2008

  • But mephistophelian is one of the best things for a mango to be!! *confused*

    April 16, 2008

  • Mangoes are mephistophelian c_b. Malefic. Be careful!

    April 16, 2008

  • Mangoes rock. They're really not dicks at all.

    April 16, 2008

  • That's strange reesetee, most bananas are very civil towards me. We've had some excellent conversations especially late at night.

    How are you approaching bananas? They're quite intuitive - they can sense fear or arrogance.

    Mangoes can be cruel and sarcastic though.

    April 16, 2008

  • Haha! I don't know about anyone else, Prolagus, but I'm just talking about bananas. Plain ol' bananas. You know, the yellow fruit.

    Oh hell; I give up.

    April 16, 2008

  • Is it a sort of a double-entendre?

    April 15, 2008

  • All Abominations do that, reesetee. It's nothing personal. They're just dicks.

    April 15, 2008

  • I have no clue, bilby. They just don't like me. When I walk by, they call me names. I try to be nice, but they mock me. They're always whispering about me behind my back.

    Bananas are so cruel.

    April 15, 2008

  • I've got a recipe for banana wine around somewhere. Probably several. (Meantime, here's a banana wine recipe from the web. Never tried it.)

    April 15, 2008

  • Why are you disliked by bananas, rt?

    April 15, 2008

  • I'd take the bananas too, c_b, if I could. I like 'em. Unfortunately, they don't like me very much. :-(

    April 15, 2008

  • I've had banana beer - it was, to quote chained_beer, I mean chained_bear, an abomination in the eyes of the lord.

    April 14, 2008

  • I've seen banana beer.

    April 12, 2008

  • Yes, we have no banana flavoured wine today.

    April 12, 2008

  • You can give me the bananas c_b - I love em! I love banana anything. I'd even drink banana flavored wine if I could find it.

    April 12, 2008

  • Oh dear. Oh no. This won't do. I hate hate hate bananas. They're vile. They're a tool of the devil. They're an Abomination in the Eyes of the Lord.

    Though the drink name is teh alsome, palooka. :)
