do not slander the banana

the new chiquita banana stickers are out.  finalists were whittled down using criteria that prohibited any writing that was "obscene, hateful, tortuous, or defamatory" to the banana.

as a staunch defender of the banana as one of nature's greatest fruits, i'm pleased by these strict rules.  for non-believers, let me remind you that bananas are mouth-sized, not drippy, and easily identified as ripe or not (in contrast to the orange, the ultimate gamble fruit).  structurally, they come with a handle and their own biodegradable wrapper.  banana, FTW.
