    That first banana looks delicious. The last two would be good for making banana bread.

    Banana bread time!

    I can barely eat bananas that are super yellow. I prefer them a little green over that.

      Back in my high school days, when I worked at the local ice-cream shop, I was inclined to toss out the really nasty black ones, until I got chastised for it. It turns out there was one particular customer who would appear regularly, once a week, and ask for a banana split and specify the nastiest black bananas we had, and someone had developed the habit of saving them for him. He used to say “if you can’t squeeze it out like toothpaste, it’s not ripe enough yet”

    Wow. Comment section is slow… Maybe if these were outdoor bananas, they’d be healthier and people would be more interested in eating them.

      In the meantime here are some banana tidbits for you:

      * I heard that cutting off the stems or wrapping the stems in aluminum foil helps the bananas keep longer.
      * You can take a needle/pin, stick it thru the banana skin and slice the banana from the inside. Then you will have a pre-sliced banana upon peeling.
      * I used to write my kids notes on bananas I would pack in their lunches. Or sometimes I would just draw a picture.
      * Some people claim it is easier to peel a banana from the end opposite of the stem.
      * I think bananas are supposed to help muscles keep from cramping.
      * Although bananas are supposed to be so good for you, I rarely eat them.

      Pre-slicing a banana and not telling someone sounds like a fun idea.

      It’s way way harder than it sounds. I’m actually not sure it’s possible having tried it myself. Maybe if it was REALLY ripe like those gross toothpaste bananas mentioned above?

      I’ve done it before. It was easy and the banana was firm. At least that’s how I remember it. I think I will try again, just to see. :)

      Are you sure it wasn’t firm and the banana easy, pooham? :P

      Bananas have potassium. That’s why they can help with muscle cramps.

      *was fed way too many bananas as a child for “growing pains”*

    Maybe they didn’t pray to their goddess Chiquita Banana hard enough?

    I am Groot!

    Sorry, saw it last week and just – I love Groot. I need more Groot in my life. Especially dancing baby Groot.

    And there’s not much you can say about Passive Aggressive Bananas.

    But bananas come from trees and Groot is a sentient alien tree person so –

    I AM GROOT!!!!!!!!!!!

    Those nasty bananas need to split. We recently discovered that horses like to eat bananas, peels and all.

    That first banana’s night as guest host on Stuart Smalley’s Daily Affirmations was an abysmal failure.

    “That banana shaped object, ain’t no banana, it’s a bright yellow UFO. And it’s coming to get me, here I go…” Ape noises ensue.

    A banana and an “eat me” sign…there’s a joke there somewhere.
