Caption This 60


Please caption this image

Delray Beach, Florida, December 2007 [Click to embiggen]


I've always been a bit bananas for bananas (or simply bananas, depending on your perspective.) Beyond their nutritional goodness, they have an aesthetic that most fruits can only dream of. They also seem to do well in front of a lens (see here and here for earlier examples of banana fruitography.)

Your turn: Please suggest a caption this image. Family-friendly, profane or not-profane...whatever works for you! I'm a sucker for repeat-visitors and friend/family-referrers. Click the Comment link below to start the fun.

About last week's paint-splattered image: I loved the colors as soon as I saw them. Apparently, you all did, too! Colleen's 52 flavors takes it this week. Other honorable menschens include:
  • Anne: "Brush off"
  • Steve: "When pigments fly"
  • Lissa: "Remains of the day"
  • The teach: "Do you want Mint Chocolate Chip or Caramel Crunch?"
  • Robin: "The start of something beautiful" and "Coats of many color"
  • Omykiss: "Fingered lids"
  • Tiel Aisha Ansari: "Stir crazy"
Submit as many as you wish...and extra kudos go to those who refer new folks into the fold. Have fun!

Well, this was a treat--I was partial to the captions you were last week!

For this week? Let's start things off with....

Monkey business

"Mid-life crisis" inasmuch as they will shortly turn brown absent consumption by the rest of us.

Cheers.

This is actually the first frame of the intro video to one of my favorite soaps!

Picture it: The bananas slowly spin clockwise, the camera slowly zooms out.

An announcer: "And with the softening of this fruit, we shed the peels of our lives."

Meh. I'm on my way to see Hillary. My mind isn't conducive to creativity right about now.

Tiel Aisha Ansari said...

Did you know the technical term for a bunch of bananas is a "hand"? Which leads to the following thoughts:

Hands off!

Five-finger exercise

How did my fingers get this color?

Fancy gloves!

and of course...

Where on earth did my pet tarantula get to?

Marisa said...

What a great bunch we are.

or

They call me mellow yellow.

Mr. Althouse said...

What did one banana say to the other?

Let's split!

Heidi said...

We absolutely LOVE bananas at our house... I think my older son ate three just yesterday. So, the firs tthing that I thought of when I saw this photo today is the noise we make whenever we fetch one of these yummy snacks:

Ooo, oooh, aaah, aaah, aaah!!! (Like a monkey... not much of a caption, but it's just what we do.)

Good day to you, Carmi!

Vesper said...

I was going to suggest Bananarama La Bamba!, but I think they look more like Banana Fingers.

I didn't get a chance to get back here earlier and it's very late, but I thought "Attention Yellow Submarines...hey,you on the right, you're listing, surface, surface!"
