You're Most Digestible, My Friend

Okay, pure silliness. I work with newsletters in Mailchimp a lot, and just before you press Send or Schedule the Mailchimp Monkey says "Your moment of glory!" That's very cool. Then when you click it, in addition to the "Done and done!" notice, there's a link to a 1940s Chiquita Banana commercial. I always play it and end up singing this song for the rest of the day :-)

Cute, & do you do the little dance around the office too Dan ? Lol. It's rather catchy.

Indeed I do. I danced my way over to the counter where there was ONE brown-flecked banana. Yum!

that's one thin banana. now it makes me wonder if anyone back then knew what a banana was. that was a little more educational than your typical banana commercial.

Does this count as one serving of fruit for me, today? Just wonderin'. :))

Gee, thanks, Dan. Now I have TWO different songs running through my mind. More importantly - I didn't know they were coming out with a second Despicable Me. Loved the first one.

@Claude - two servings if you watched both.

I'll have you know, Dan, that I've watched that Banana and Potato Song video no fewer than 6 times today. Thanks a lot. :P LOL

Yes, this has no bananas, but it's a cute song by Paul Williams for the TV cartoon "Dexter's Laboratory":

IIRC the bananas we get today are not the same species we were importing at the time that commercial was made. The old species was, I think I read, tastier and traveled better than the species we get now, but it was wiped out by fungus or something - and the currently imported species is in danger of having the same thing happen soon.
