Do we need a "Banana" tab?

Asked by janbb (57237points) January 29th, 2015

There seem to be a number of banana questions in recent days. is this a trend? If so, do we need a separate tab for Banana Questions? Maybe our Founders will come out of hiding to add one.

If we were to have a banana tab, it might open the door to such things as a mansion party tab, or a game tab, or a weather event tab…I don’t know.

^^ Come Mistuh Tallyman, tally me bananas!

longgone's avatar

Yes. We clearly do.

It may attract some questionable clientele, though.

New question!

“When was the last time you had your banana tallied?”

and was it only daylight that came?

I will volunteer my services as tallyperson.

Beautiful answer, @Yetanotheruser. Is it time to peal away from this thread?

Bananas are gross.

rojo's avatar

@tinyfaery You may find them more likable if you just eat them a bite at a time, don’t try to stuff the whole thing into your mouth at once, until you have more practice.

that and peel them first

@tinyfaery If bananas are not to your liking may I suggest a kiwi.

These little fruits are the gems of the produce department. Try to get one that is just a little soft when you squeeze it but not mushy. Cut it in half without removing the skin then take your knife and make a vertical slit into the fruit, from navel to bottom, of each half without penetrating the outer layer. If your choice was right and it is soft and juicy, dripping with liquid goodness, you can take your tongue and lick out most of the fleshy sweetmeat although it may require a little nibbling to get it all. Then as an extra treat you can pop the remaining husk into your mouth to finish it off. It is a little fuzzy and sometimes that is hard to wrap your head around but the tartness of the flesh mixed with the sweet nectar of the remaining fruit can be an almost erotic delight.

A monkey walks into a bar and orders a strawberry daiquiri.

The bartender laughs and says “don’t you mean banana?”

The monkey says, no, strawberry is fine, thanks.

janbb's avatar

it is obvious from the enthusiasm that a banana tab is warrented!

jaytkay's avatar

Q; Why can’t Anna Kournikova travel to certain countries?

A: Because they ban Anna.

rojo's avatar

@jaytkay what about
“Banana,
Banana-bana-bo fana
Fee-fi-fo-fana
Me-my-mo-mana
BANANA!”

And there isn’t any word that we can’t rhyme…..

Berserker's avatar

@tinyfaery I agree, bananas suck ass. I hate those bastards.

janbb's avatar

I like bananas up to a certain point. When they get too ripe and smell they disgust me.

canidmajor's avatar

^ ^ ^ Yeah, sister, TESTIFY!!!
too much?

janbb's avatar

I have gone to the mountain and I have seen – BANANAS!!

canidmajor's avatar

janbb's avatar

@canidmajor Frozen chocolate covered bananas on a stick – now that’s penguin porn!

@rojo Please, let me introduce you to an actual kiwi, the national bird of NZ and an endangered species.

Aethelwine's avatar

Bananas give me terrible stomach cramps. Every time I try to eat one I end up curled in a ball on my bed for three hours. I haven’t had one in years.

I’m the same with avacados. I can do without bananas but I’m sad about the avacados.

janbb's avatar

@jonsblond No bananas for you.

“Yes, we have no bananas, we have no bananas today!”

rojo's avatar

@Adagio Well, they are approximately the same shape so I would say you could prep and consumed the same way. i would probably skip eating the skin however, the feathers tickle the back of the throat.

I love Harry Chapin’s 30,000 Pounds of Bananas.

I wish @SQUEEKY was on here, I think he would like the song if he doesn’t know it.

Strauss's avatar

If we don’t get the banana tab, does that mea there’ll be

wait for it

a banana ban!

ucme's avatar

It’s a fucking banana republic.

Earthbound_Misfit's avatar

As a banana bender from Bananaland, I think this is a fine idea. However, I also think this should be our State anthem so perhaps I’m just bananas. Sing minions!

If there was, I would be the most enthusiastic asker of that tag ~

@ucme It is not. It’s a banana democrat.

ucme's avatar

@Dutchess_III You’re essentially saying that donkey’s like a banana more than elephants do, controversial :D

Strauss's avatar

Joe is walking down the street, comes up on Moe, holding a banana in his ear. He says, “Hey Moe, what are you doing with a banana in your ear?”
Moe looks up and replies, “Hey Joe, you’ll have to speak up. I can’t hear you. I have a banana in my ear!”

janbb's avatar

@Yetanotheruser That was always one of my old favorites!

Strauss's avatar

…Then Moe peels the banana, drops it on the ground and Joe slips on the banana peel!

RIM SHOT!

Strauss's avatar

Is that a banana in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me!?

Coloma's avatar

I’ve always enjoyed being slipped a big Banana.

rojo's avatar

@Coloma Do you prefer your banana “peeled” or “unpeeled”?

Coloma's avatar

Unpeeled please. haha

Dutchess_III's avatar

We need to start a Facebook campaign to stop banana circumcision.

Coloma's avatar

Oh wait…retraction. I like my Bananas peeled, as in no Banana condoms, not uncircumcised. lol Then again, I have never tried an uncircumcised Banana. Best Banana has a vasectomy. haha

Tropical_Willie's avatar

I vote to put @Coloma in charge of “Banana Tab” !

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Andd @Dutchess_III second in charge.

rojo's avatar

I don’ know if I having @Coloma and @Dutchess_III handle your banana tab at the same time is a good idea, even if you use a good chocolate sauce.

Berserker's avatar

I need a beer tab.

Coloma's avatar

LMAO…too funny you guys.
I once dipped my ex husbands Banana in Cool Whip and…never mind.

dxs's avatar

I think we’re going a bit bananas here.
