What? You’ve never seen a one-legged, wide-eyed banana in a “come-hither” pose? Well then. It’s time to get educated.
I always worry when my produce starts making eyes at me. Of all the anthropomorphic veggies I’ve seen, this one is the most tragic. She’s been…peeled. And I really can’t tell if she’s coyly draping one leg over the side of the side of the shelf, or if she’s missing a limb.
On that note, why would a banana be missing a leg? Or whatever that appendage is? Bananas are usually the lest-enlegged vegetable out there. Besides every other vegetable, except for certain deformed carrots. So, rather than worrying about its career in professional football, we should celebrate the partially-legged status of this particular fruit. Even though looks more like the jointed leg of a banana spider, not a healthy limb at all.
I don’t know, maybe it’s a really nice banana leg. Banana-gam? Usually they’re covered with spots.
And joining the banana, we have a piece of corn, wishing it had brought just a little more twine with it this morning.
Poor thing, like the last piece of corn at the dance.
