doglover: STOP IT WITH THE MONOCULTURE ALREADY!

Those morons already killed the "golden" banana. Y'know the one that was actually good to eat? Yeah, it died. Then we got the modern "banana" which is really just a soft plantain and tastes it.

Now, they went all monoculture again and lo and behold growing the same damn thing all the same damn time leaves you vulnerable to disease. This is why British accents are hot and you don't know why. Your body craves new and varied DNA for your offspring so they'll be the most resilient. We need a variety of banana species on each farm so no one fungus can wipe them out. Plus, maybe they'll interbreed and the seedlings will develop a fungal immunity.

Banana S'more

what is that magical concoction?! I demand a recipe

I think the picture is the recipe.


The logistics, man! What of the logistics? It's like getting a box of legos with no instructions! I see the pieces, I see the picture, but the road tween them, she is covered in a fog!

VOCSL5: I remember when bananas had prominent black seeds in the center - like kiwi-fruit.  I havne't seen any that look like that since I was a kid.... probably around 1990.


That's right... a banana slice used to look like a cat's asshole.

He was a young driver,
just out on his second job.
And he was carrying the next day's pasty fruits
for everyone in that coal-scarred city
where children play without despair
in backyard slag-piles and folks manage to eat each day
about thirty thousand pounds of bananas.

Are we talking about your sexuality or is this a round about way of saying you've gotten fat?

Being able to suck your own cawk would be like dividing by zero, I mean everything you do in this world withwork and hobbies and stuff is little more than an elaborate rouse to get someone else to suck your cawk for you.


Sucking your own cock is terrible feeling. Your brain doesn't recognize the feeling of a mouth on your dick, it registers the feeling of a dick in your mouth.

Both I guess. I was as flexible as a Chinese contortionist in high school. No one else offered to suck my dick, so ...

I think I'm beginning to understand you. I couldn't exist in a world where a pretty young thing doesn't ask to have my cock in her mouth. I'll even hold off on my usual 3d printing quips.


Oh yeah? OH YEAH!? Well your MOM was a 3d printer!!!!
