Mushy's Believe it, OR NOT!

Mushroom asks of banana peels - slippery or not??

I've decided to go all myth busting for this piece, cos you know i like to tackle the big issues on this blog. As these lovely little fruit wrappers slippery or not?? Well if you would believe numerous cartoons that have covered the topic in their own light hearted manner you'd say YES! But really, have any of you out there ever known of anyone who has actually tripped on a banana peel? Well i for one havent.
In the interests of science, i purchased an overprived cavendish banana today and attempted to debunk this myth. I placed it on the ground and in my lovely slippery designer shoes attempted to slip and slide on the the peel til i crashed down on my ass. After serveral attempts I can assure you that while banana peels may appear slippery, they are definitely NOT! So there you have it, cutting edge science on a bullshit blog. Bye for now........

  • really, ta! I didnt think it was very good. But that is my usual standard.

  • There are a lot of perverts like you around, Kramer, who specialise in degrading the dignity of the noble banana.
    If you're not busy subjecting them to cruel experiments such as the one you claim to have conducted, you're probably complicit in the systematic abuse of bananas in strip clubs and the adult entertainment industry.

  • NO bananas were hurt during the making of this dramatisation and we here at STIYPASI wholeheartedly support a number of banana's rights programs.

  • That's what all you bananaphiles say; just like that psychotic Bunny Fondler.
    "OH no...we love bananas...we'd never harm them..."
    I bet if we looked in the laneway behind your office, it would be strewn with dead or dying fruit.

  • Including those bananas who want to reclaim their straightness...?
    Hmm, mr 'banana-bender'
    I think this abuse of our yellow friends started at an early age...

  • I have actually slipped on a banana peel. Now I don't know whether that shows you that the peel is indeed slippery or if I am indeed an idiot?
