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"
Well, this was a treat--I was partial to the captions you were last week!
For this week? Let's start things off with....
"Mid-life crisis" inasmuch as they will shortly turn brown absent consumption by the rest of us.
Forgot "via Michelle."
The making of a Republic.. Michele says hi.
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.
two pairs of yellow slippers
"Stop leaning on me. You're going to leave a bruise"
think of the banana splits those will make!
Little. Yellow. Tasty.
I know I know! Four yellow bananas. No need to thank me :o)
Again thanks for the menschen!
Bananas are exceptionally goof for you. :) Well, not just you... all of us. That would be really weird if they were just good for you.
I don't think I can top Sage's caption. lol
Michele says hello!
(Hi from Michele's - good 2 c u)
(remember that song? Btw, increasing my view absolutely never occurred to me. I mean, why should it? The world revolves around ME, not the other way around!)
Hi Carmi, I'll try again: Banana split ends.
(wow, I hadn't even seen Lissa's caption....I swear... creepy - LOL)
Fruit-y is skin deep
"All we need now is a cup of flour, baking soda, sugar, an egg, baking powder and a hot oven."
"Don't for get the pan, Murray, you always forget the pan."
And back again...
"Yellow slick road"
have a good week, friend
Did you know the technical term for a bunch of bananas is a "hand"? Which leads to the following thoughts:
How did my fingers get this color?
and of course...
Where on earth did my pet tarantula get to?
What a great bunch we are.
They call me mellow yellow.
What did one banana say to the other?
Time flies like the wind,
fruit flies like bananas.
With a sight like this first thing inthe morning you know it is gonna be a good dayo. Daaa-yo! Daylight come and ...
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!
i eat soooooo many bananas in a week. and i love banana bread, too.
"We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his peel with me
Shall be my brother"-
Shakespeare, tweaked by Carli
I was going to suggest Bananarama La Bamba!, but I think they look more like Banana Fingers.
All I can think of is Fa la la, lalala, fa la la lala lala la, thanks SHG for the words
ps - it only took tech support a day to figure out the problem with the crackberry, next time i'm coming to you...
Yellow, yellow! Is anyone there?
I love your bananas. Congrats on being number 1 at WW.
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!"
