Fruit, with amusing connotations

There's always something "funny" about the banana. Whereas Apple gets companies named after it, and Orange gets mobile phones named after it, and Apricot gets computers named after it, BANANA seems too easy to slip up on.

Bananas grow wild in tropical places such as Belize and Panama. Fresh locally-grown bananas taste individually slightly different from each other.

Other notes:

* Bananas in the diet help to swing your sodium/potassium balance towards potassium. Just the thing if you are too far towards the sodium end through eating too much salt!

* Bananas are a source of ethylene gas. This is the same gas which it has been said helped the Oracle of Delphi to reach a state of mystical trance. This suggests a possible experiment could be conducted to see if bananas (in sufficient quantity) could be used for prophesy.

* A person who is insane may be said to have "gone bananas". This is one of many terms for madness
