Diana’s Bananas

Posted by


One banana, two banana, three banana, four,
Four bananas make a bunch and so do many more.
Over hill and highway the banana buggies go,
Comin’ on to bring you the Banana Splits show! — Mark Barkan and Ritchie Adams, The Tra La La Song (One Banana, Two Banana), 1968

How much would you pay for one banana? Two bananas? Three bananas? Four? I got six for two bucks because I bought in a bundle from the grocery store instead of buying one at a time for a buck apiece from the coffee house!

Who pays a buck for a banana? They must be… some word for someone who’s just a little off in the head if not entirely crazy.

Anyway, I’m hoping that these regular, cheapo bananas will have the same properties as the magical, expensive bananas. If all goes well, they’ll be just as efficacious in treating Diana’s suspected potassium deficiency and cure her midnight charlie horses.

What do you think? Yea or nay?
