No more bananas for you...

Ah ha...you're bananas, lady

I can waste time like a cat on a hot Sunday afternoon. I swear to all that is holy, I have just spent three hours reading this damn blog looking for my post on bananas. (I'm lying, of course. I gave up after about five minutes, but that doesn't change the fact that it was an incredible waste of my time.)

I couldn't find it! 

I swear (if I may be so bold as to do so, after proving that I'm a liar and a half) I wrote a post about bananas and chocolate and the dwindling supply. It might have been two posts, one for chocolate and one for bananas, in which case I'm missing two instead of one! I'm either nuts, or bananas, or I'm recalling some other blog from long ago, now rotting somewhere on the Tubes in that wasteland of the Internet.

Anyway...

Bananas have this fungus that's killing them and, if I recall, people started planting a different breed of banana--one that could withstand the fungus. But the fungus mutated, or evolved, or became Super Fungus--as we all knew it would! I predicted it! I watch The Science Channel, you know.

This article explains it all: Get ready for the banana pandemic to destroy your favorite fruit

No more bananas for you!

No more banana pudding, banana bread, peanut butter covered bananas, frozen chocolate covered bananas, and...well, that's all, isn't it? I mean, we don't do that much with them, after all.

Hmm. Maybe I panicked for nothing. Which means I wasted all that time searching and now all this time writing this post for NOTHING!

Damn bananas.
