Friday Flash 55.....

.

.

Split, Fried, in a Pudding or Cake
Raw, Dried, in a Bread or Baked
Yellow, Green, sometimes Red
Eat them for Breakfast, or a Snack before bed
Phallic in shape, some are Long, some Shorty
Slightly Radioactive....Isotope Potassium-40
And remember they are grown, near the Equator
So never keep them...In the Refrigerator
.

.
If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55
Please come tell The G-Man!
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment....Then BOOK!!
So from the slipperiest host from coast to coast...
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!

Monkey Man said...

No second banana you, G-Man. Ode to the fruit that comes in its own wrapper and with a handle. Nice.

My 55 is HERE .

Love bananas...never seen a red one, though! I got one up again :)

Prayer Girl said...

I have banana trees in my back yard...nice to look at, but they don't produce anything edible. :(

Loved your rhyme today. Light-hearted is a good thing.

Mmm...tasty 55. I do love bananas. And I make a pretty fine banana bread, if I do say so myself. :)

You are so clever! But don't forget to watch out for the tarantula.

I’m in with a warning shot.

Claudia said...

C.M. Jackson said...

TALON said...

Loved your ode to the banana, G-Man! Chiquita Banana is very proud right about now! :)

My 55 is HERE

Janna said...

I almost bought some bananas earlier this week, until I saw that they were 47 cents a pound.
Ironically, I had no problem paying a dollar a pound for apples, or $1.29 for a cheeseburger that cost only a dollar last year.
Obviously my life makes no sense.

Thanks for another Friday 55!
Mine's here. :)

It's a miracle fruit!

I found your banana rhyme very appealing. ;)

As usual I wrote a 55 word groaner.

Gio said...

First time posting, great to be here!

*******
I dream:
I dream of death
and ways to go
I dream of headless body’s
and missing toes
I dream of corpses
rotting away
I dream of all this
night and day
I dream of all this
and after something grand
I dream but all I’ll get
is fire and burning sand
Yes I dream
*******

Enchanted Oak said...

Well, alrighty then. Everybody needs a banana poem now and then to liven up their lives. I really thought that Shorty/Potassium-40 rhyme was a humdinger.

Well, onward and upward here. My contribution is up early this week. You might want to wear rubbers (boots) when you get there: Doo-Doo Head 55 here

Enchanted Oak said...

And let's not forget the most famous banana quote of all time:

Is that a banana in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

Gold stars for everyone who knows who said it.

A Daft Scots Lass said...

Enjoy Friday and the weekend.

Mine is up too.

anthonynorth said...

HOOTIN' ANNI said...

Phallic indeed...my dear man always arranges them in a bowl with a nice round apple on each side...of course the banana is in the 'upright' position. Figures. LOLOLOL

Great 55.

I have a 'double whammy' 55...two for the price of one today.

The link is HERE I'd love to have you stop by for a visit. Have a super WeekEnd....and G-man, thanks for the wonderful comment you left for me last week. Much appreciated.

forever lost said...

Here we go again! (Happy Friday!)

Just Hell

Susan at Stony River said...

LOL Now I'm singing the Chiquita Banana girl song ALL DAY I know it! I have a pile of them getting too ripe on our table now -- looks like a banana-bread kind of day.

Thanks for hosting, have a wonderful weekend!

SouthLakesMom said...

First time participating, although I've admired many times.

Our parakeet LOVES bananas. When my son pulls the peel back and leaves it hanging inside out, she flies over and delicately mooches off the inside of the skin -- something he can't get to anyway!

Here's mine. http://southlakesmom.blogspot.com/2010/10/flash-55-for-friday.html

hope said...

Which made me laugh as Hubby ate banana bread this morning. :)

Mine's up...have a good weekend!

Millie said...

5thsister said...

Wise advice: Never keep them in the fridge. I hear they shrink when they get cold!

Ahem, well, mine for today is just a simple little 55 that can be found
HERE

I got sidetracked and felt bad I didn't have one planned to go out this week.

G-Man said...

Good one...G

Brian Miller said...

Alice Audrey said...

LOL, G-man. You do remember that Suzie's House is not my 55, right?

clean and crazy said...

RNSANE said...

This was such a cute one, Galen...and I love bananas, especially Bananas Foster at Brennan's in New Orleans, though I don't think I'll make it there this visit.

RNSANE said...

Whoops, I forgot, I'm up at:

Mine is up here.

Have a great friday.

Lulda Casadaga said...

Alice Audrey said...

*mwah* You are such an ass-kicking sweet heart for commenting on both.

Tina said...

katrin said...

Meri said...

I tried a 55 -- it's at meriak.blogspot.com.

secret agent woman said...

I remember that the bananas in Costa Rica were much sweeter than the ones that we get here.

Donnetta Lee said...

When I was sick a few years ago, all I could eat was bananas. I can barely face one today!

Hope all is well in your world. My 55er is up. Best. D

Dianne said...

I LOVE this! It is so funny! Did you know apes eat a banana by splitting it in half like a breadstick? Try it, now that is funny! Kids love that trick. Speaking of tricks, Is that a banana in your pocket?

Mine is up HERE .

Sorry, I'll work on my sense of humor. I lost it somewhere in a bunch of banana news....
