Listen to the bananas

I saw this life-hack about how you can lightly trace notes on banana skins with toothpicks and then the next day the notes will show up like magic.

The person writing the tip suggested writing sweet notes for your kids on their bananas.  I promptly went and traced notes on all of our bananas and then immediately forgot about it, until the next day when I heard Victor screaming about how the bananas were talking to him.

I acted like he was insane and like I couldn’t see any notes on the bananas, and asked if maybe he needed to go lay down and rest, but then he was all “I recognize your handwriting, dumb-ass.  Why are you writing threatening letters on the bananas?” and I was like “Because we were out of post-its?”  But then I finally admitted that I was just practicing, because I thought it would be funny to write paranoid demands on bananas at the grocery store, so that when people get them home they’ll be all “What the fuck?  Are these bananas talking to me?  WHAT DOES IT MEAN?”  Then Victor just shook his head and walked out of the room.  Probably because he couldn’t stand how awesome I am.

PS.  I suppose you could also write sweet, complimentary things on anonymous bananas, like “You’re so beautiful” and junk, but honestly I think having a banana hitting on me would be way creepier than one telling me to “Act natural.  You’ll be contacted soon.”  It’s probably just me.

PPS.  I can only think of about 6 things to write on stranger’s bananas so if you have any suggestions, please leave them.

  12. Howsabout “This banana will self-destruct 30 seconds after eating it.”

  13. If you were magic, then you could write on the inside of the banana skin, to only be seen after it’s completely consumed, “Oh, I forgot to tell you, I have a rash.” OMG rampant banana STDs!!

    I found out the other day that my 21-month old nephew loves bananas to the extent that, from half a store away he spotted them and started screaming, “BANANAS! Bananas bananas! Want BANANAS!” I should tell my sister to scratch “Time to go night-night” in the skins. It might save her a few migraines.

  20. Don’t turn around!

    Yours should have said , Hi, Victor

  21. I once scratched “Don’t kid yourself. You know you did it.” on a banana and my ex told me he cheated on me with his favorite barista at Starbucks. I still can’t believe he confessed because of accusatory fruit. Also, I haven’t had Starbucks since.

    Amy recently posted Inspiration, Motivation or Whatever.

  22. Should I be worried that I was eating a banana when I came across this post? Now I’m afraid of what the rest of the bunch will have to say tomorrow.

    Don’t Panic!

    Or “Wolverines!”

  31. “I’m really a plantain”

    “Banana hammock”
    “Eat more grapes”
    “How YOU doin?”
    “Bruises hurt”
    “I can’t stand this bunch I’m with”
    “I taste like chicken”
    Of course, you must either write really small, or find some really long bananas for some of mine. I’m wordy.

  59. I shouldn’t be telling you this, but you can also use a needle to poke holes in the skins every 1/2 inch or so down the banana. when you have the needle inserted you move it back and forth. Then, when the person opens the banana it falls apart in slices.

    I say, hit victor with both.

    And maybe “Happy Breakfast, Motherfucker”

  60. “Eat me and I will take your soul.”

    “I’m what death tastes like.”

  69. Oh my goodness, this was the perfect thing for first thing Monday morning. My mind also goes immediately to threatening messages, because they’re so much more fun when they mysteriously appear. Too bad my husband doesn’t like bananas . . . Oh well, random acts of insanity right?
    I’m thinking:

    You’re being followed. NO! Don’t look!
    Don’t even blink
    It’s heeeeeeeeeeeeere.
    Are you the gatekeeper?
    I am the keymaster
    There’s something on your back

    Also, I think it would be awesome to write a different message each day “5 days” “4 days” “3 days” “2 days” “1 day . . .” so it looks like the apocolypse is being spelled out in bananas, but you might want to do that one at home because I have a feeling it would cause a terrorist alert if you did it in the grocery store.

  70. Since my bananas are only seen and eaten by me, unless I develop intermittent amnesia, writing messages on the ones at home is a waste of time. The grocery store, however …

    Have to consider writing some of these interesting suggestions, except she’ll know it’s me doing the writing. Hm.

    The best time to write has to be just before your loved one packs their lunch box. It will freak them out when they know they packed a perfect banana and when they open the box it has writing on it >:-)

  277. This is PRICELESS! I can’t wait to go fuck with my kids…I mean, write them love notes. Ahem. I’m thinking something like “eat more apples” or “maybe next time I’ll peel YOUR skin BWAHAHAHAHAH!” I’m still working on the ominous messages.

  357. If you really want to freak someone out with bananas, use a needle to poke holes along it, wiggling the needle back and forth each time you poke a hole. Do this along the entire length of the banana, and you’ve basically managed to “slice” the banana without opening it. Then when someone opens it, it’s already sliced, and they freak out. I usually just tell people “Oh, it’s the newest thing in fruit, didn’t you know? Already sliced banana. Genetically altered.”

  450. We had some floods through our banana plantations here in Australia so banana’s have gone up from $4 a kilo to about $16

    So I’d either get arrested for writing on bananas – but if I could I’d write ‘at $16 a kilo we’d better takes things slowly – it could be a while before you can afford another!

    Love your blog – just found you and I howl with laughter – you have a wicked sense of humour.

  451. Why stop at words? Draw a subtle Jesus on the banana and then slide into the banana stand at your local wal-mart? Some hick religious nut will make the news and have a life altering experience at wal-mart all because of you. In fact. I’m doing that….tonight.

    “the Smart one.”

  460. Haha! I know I’m bringing up the rear here on comments, but I could totally see the following phrases mysteriously appearing on a banana near you.

    I apologize in advance if by some chance someone else also suggests these. I in no way claim to be the most original, blah, blah, blah…

    “mello yello”
    “I said what?”
    “No, please, save him. Take me!”

  461. 1) Thank you.

    2) My husband is convinced that the old man who used to live in our house, has since passed and is now haunting it.

    3) My husband went came home from the grocery tonight with a bunch of bananas.

    4) I leave at 5am tomorrow for a business trip.

    5) Yup.

  462. Ok I thought of a couple more…

    “These are not the bananas you’re looking for.”

    “Happy Happy Joy Joy”

    “Eat naked”

    “Does not grow on trees. Oh, wait”

  463. yes I had a psychic read my banana.

  464. This is so much better than telling ML to his face that I will stab him if he leaves strawberry tops all over the counters. I wonder if I can fit that on a banana? “Dear ML: I will fucking cut you if I find little strawberry tops all over every goddamn surface. xoxo, JJ”

    Since we’re on the topic of bananas…I have to tell you my banana/zombie dream I had a few years ago. First off, I should tell you that I’m military and at the time I was part of a pre-commissioning crew. We lived, worked, and trained (emphasis on the firefighting portion of training) onboard, of a new destroyer being built in the shipyards. One night I dreamt that the zombie apocalypse had occurred. Zombies were all over the shipyard and trying to come onboard the ship. Everyone was freaking out, trying to figure out what to do. Then, all of the sudden, an idea hits me!

    EVERYONE ELSE: “Oh SPIT man! What are we gonna do?!”
    ME: “You know how when you get a leg cramp and people tell you to eat a banana because your body needs potassium? Well…maybe that’s the reason why zombies moan and shuffle around. They don’t really need blood and brains; they need potassium and they just don’t know how to get it. So let’s feed them bananas!” (I know…you’re thinking “Sure, give the shambling zombies potassium so they’ll be able to run at you faster. But hey this is my dream; it doesn’t have to make SENSE.)

    People run down and grab all the boxes of bananas in the food storage area, drag them back topside and start chucking bananas at the zombies, and watching as the undead scrambled after the bananas on the ground and sat down to eat them. But pretty soon we ran out and the panic started again.

    EE: “Oh SPIT man! We’re out of bananas. What are we gonna do now?!”
    ME: “Uhhhh…PKP!* PKP has potassium in it lets hose them down with PKP!”

    So we grabbed all of the PKP bottles and started hosing down zombies and watched while the zombies rolled around in the powder. Then I woke up. I love my dreams, lol!

    *PKP (potassium bicarbonate) is a dry purple powder fire extinguisher used in fighting flammable liquid fires. Firefighting had been drilled into all of our brains, lol, quite well apparently and for a good reason…when you’re out on the ocean and something catches on fire, you can’t call 9-1-1…you’re on your own.

  542. Hilarious! I’m totally doing this to freak out my husband.

    Your blog makes me laugh every time I check in to see what you’ve been up to.

  543. Personally, I thought harry potter and put “Kill the Spare” on one banana and left it out for my fiancee. He was so amused he took a picture and put it on facebook.

  544. I just discovered your blog last week from the “Happiness Project” blog and I quickly sent a link to all of my friends and family because I think you are so freaken funny. I love your sense of humor! My eyes well up with every entry. Thanks…so happy to have found you.

  545. I lived in Russia for a while (having graduated with a degree in Russian) and one of my all-time favorite stories was from a friend who grew up, like all kids at that period, being forced to volunteer at a collective farm. He and his hooligan friends made a practice of lightly carving (similarly to your banana trick) obscenities into the rinds of tiny watermelons . By the time they were fully-grown, the words would be splayed across the otherwise perfectly good fruit. I’m sorry if any sweet, kind babushki were offended at the market, but it’s one of those things that kinda make one giggle.

    I would write “Yes, you were adopted” and/or “Don’t go home”

  555. Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana. Might be too long, though!

  556. So, after some thought on this, I’ve decided to use this trick to my advantage when my son starts school.

    “Eat the crust”
    “Stop talking in class”
    “Be nice to your teacher”
    “Paste is not for eating”
    “You’re too good for her. She reads at a 2nd grade level.”
    “Do NOT call your teacher that.”
    “Stop wiping your boogers under your desk.”
    “Get your revenge during kickball.”

  558. So I bought a bunch and wrote bossy sayings on them, like “clean your room,” and “tell mom you love her, with flowers.”
    Kids laughed and told me that was my handwriting, and to DREAM ON.

  564. you have to write, Please no teeth!!!!

  565. this is brilliant.
    i like the idea of using the banana to convey otherwise life-changing comments to one’s significant other or close relative.
    “there’s someone else…”
    “you’re not the father…”
    “You were adopted…”

    all joking, of course 🙂

    and for someone at the grocery store, im thinking i would send them on a mad grocery scavenger hunt with something like this:

  567. Could this be combines with the needle-and-thread trick of slicing the banana while it’s still in the peel? Could Copernicus command it so? Would that be overkill, haunted monkey-wise?

    I did it tonight. Hit and run banana messaging. I went into my local grocery, picked up a bunch of nanners, hid behind the tomato display, and etched two messages on the same bunch. Then I said to my son (who was totally in on it and thought it was brilliant), Y’know, we already have bananas at home, so I’ll just put these back, replaced them, and went on my merry.

    I’ll be giggling and wetting myself with glee in bed tonight because of the audacity of my own wit. I’m already mapping out the groceries all over my new hometown for my next victims. And believe when I say I truly have nothing better to do.

  571. I just purchased a bunch of bananas and am going to write notes, except I’m the only one who eats them, so I’ll just be writing them to myself. I think instead of anything threatening, I’ll write stuff like, “Go get ’em, tiger!” and “You’re the top banana!”

    But for other people, I would write, “Please stop hurting me.”

  576. I was tempted to write on the bananas at my work. But I work at a psych ER, and that would probably be a BAD idea. Unless I put therapeutic things on them, like “You’re OK, and this banana is good for you.” And that is just boring.

    All I can think of is banana guerrilla tactics at the grocery store. (which is funny because this is the kind of thing I was thinking at 4:30 this morning). The bananas could serve purpose as a political platform to educate (or scare the shit out of) other shoppers. Sure you’d be arrested, but maybe for a good cause. I was thinking it might be ok since I’ve never been arrested and once probably would be ok.

  590. go bananas

    I’m not a dildo

    Tell me you love me

    Do you know how fun it would be to freak people out like that? Especially in uber-conservative Switzerland? Except I’d probably get thrown in jail. You can’t even flip people off here, imagine what they’d do to a banana defacer.

    Things like “How you doin?”, “Maybe you should reconsider that top”, “Its been awhile for me too”, “Don’t forget to swallow”

    Scratched “Help me. He’s crazy.” on one my BF’s bananas. He failed to notice this until one of the guys he works with says, “WTF is that on your banana dude?” then proceeded to pass it around the room for all the other guys to look at. He calls and says, “Uh babe…. did you write something on my banana today?” Naturally my response was, “That’s stupid. Why would I write something on your banana?” *snicker snicker*
