Um, "banana republic" isn't a euphemism, subby.  It started out as a fictional term, but less than a decade later, fruit companies carried out a real coup d'etat in Honduras.  Over bananas.

So, this isn't a pun so much as yet another chapter of a horrifying tale that dates back to the beginning of the 20th century.

According to the rules of capitalism more competition is better, yet without government prevention most companies prefer to merge and reduce competition. I wonder why that is.
