A handful of bananas. **

Bananas seem to manage to keep themselves in the news - so to be topical here are a few slip-ups, a couple of annoyances, and one or two smiles.

From English Fail Blog - Identification uncertain,



From Woosk - counting Fail.



From Fail Blog - misrepresentation.




From the BBC - EU fails to straighten bendy bananas.


From Youtube - A man called Ray Comfort explains evolution.




A Miliband moment.


"Joke" - Time flies like an arrow, but fruit flies like a banana.


From the BBC - A £340 banana skin.


And finally, light relief from Harry Belafonte and the Muppets.




** Bananas, by the way, grow in clusters, with up to 20 fruit to a tier - called a hand.

Too many bananas can cause psychotic dreams. Like this one:

@ watching - I did forget, haven't a clue why because that was the reason bananas have been in the news. Thanks for remedying it.

@ Leg-iron - Errm, it's certainly different!

Actually, I looked him (Nick Andrews) up, he ended up being big news
