This post is written in conjunction with the 30 Days of Writing, a blog challenge devised by Nicky and Mike at “We Work For Cheese.” I’ll be participating throughout the month of June. If interested, you can see my post with the details of the challenge.
Please note that some of these posts will be serious, some will be normal, and some will be an attempt at humor. This one is an attempt at humor!
The banana is one of the best fruits out there.
It has a great taste, is healthy for you and is filling.
Instead of celebrating how great bananas are, however, Nicky and Mike have decided we need to talk about the awkwardness of the common banana. I’m sure the hope is a lot of giggles and silly posts about the phallic shape of the banana.
Nope, not me.
I can’t see how people would make fun of this wonderful fruit.
You see, a banana is a great thing. It can help you with cramps and such. It’s tasty and can be mixed with many things. Other fruits. Jellys. Spreads, such as peanut butter.
Or, heck, you can just peel the banana and eat it that way!
Seriously. It’s the way to go. I could eat five or six of them at a time because they are so damned good!
But I seriously ask you… what is so awkward about the shape?
Take a peek:
Now, I ask you, what is wrong with that banana? It’s long, soft and ready to devour?
Oh for heaven’s sake, get your minds out of the gutter, people!
It’s a freakin’ banana!
Let’s take a peek at some benefits of bananas:
Bananas have potassium, which helps with decreasing the risk of high blood pressure and stroke! They also help you increase strength and reduce stress.
This lovely fruit also is high in starch (carbs) and 100 grams of a banana is equal to about 90-100 calories.
Yeah, all this stuff is really awkward.
Did you know that bananas also contain Vitamin B6 and Vitamin C?
Oh and go back to that potassium, which makes bananas totally awesome when playing sports! Remember the cramps thing? Exactly.
And they taste divine!
You know how else they taste well?
With peanut butter! Oh hell yes!
But I know how everyone else is going to look at this wonderful fruit during this challenge. Then people will be giggling and such like we were still in school.
Shame on you all!
It’s a banana.
And if you really have issues with the awkwardness of a banana, just go all chop-happy on the banana and enjoy it that way.
