Bananas are funny! Since the days of Vaudeville, comedians’ legs have come flying out from under them following contact with this farcical fruit! But surely a star of the silent film era could have slipped on a squishy orange or stumbled over one of those stuffed grape leaves you get at a Greek restaurant, right? Wrong! Treats fit for treading may be numerous indeed, but they still lack the comedic chops of the Banana! Have you ever asked a mango to expound on the role of the absurd in Gogol’s humorous short works like this cuddly Banana can? Could a persimmon rock an open mic stand-up night at your local coffee shop? I doubt it!
