how to entertain yourself with a banana | Flickr – Photo Sharing!

Earlier today I was preparing dinner. Part of my routine is mixing SlimFast with milk and a banana in the blender. Not that I am losing any weight from this. But I do get the feeling that I’m at least getting the necessary daily vitamins and protein.

While preparing the drink I noticed this sticker on the banana.

Years ago I exchanged some comments with a Polish blogger who argued that North Americans were entirely brainwashed by advertising.

I never forgot that guy. And in a sense, he’s right. Ads are actually a part of our culture. Childhood ads bring back warm and funny memories.

Weird but true.

For those who didn’t grow up in the 70s, I’m making a play on the old Monty Python sketch, “How to Defend Yourself Against a Man Armed with a Banana.”

Pop culture forever! 🙂


  1. You realize of course what the problem with mentioning the Monty Pythons is, don’t you? I hopped over to watch the Banana sketch [which I remembered] and before I knew it I was watching one after the other [hard not to]!!!!!!!! 😉
