Bananas – the Silent Killer

Posted by Arthur St John Bodysnatcher on December 1, 2009

Deadly Bananas

Bananas are the new weapon of choice for criminal gangs

Bananas are the world’s deadliest fruit.

The lethal fruit is favoured by Brazilian street gangs who use it to stab their victims, and its use has recently begun to spread across the world. The banana is popular not only for its lethal sharp ends and ergonomic nature, but also because  eating the banana often destroys all evidence of a crime, while the slippery skin can be used to slow down persuading law-enforcement officers.

Several attempts have been made to outlaw the sale of bananas, but only in Britain – where the fruit is illegal to sell to under 18’s and where the carrying of concealed bananas can result in three years in prison – has this been at all successful, thanks to a vocal and politically powerful Banana lobby.

William Shatner, Chilli Champion

William Shatner Loves Hot Chilli Peppers

The 38th chilli was one too far for Shatner

Actor William Shatner holds the world Chilli Pepper Eating Record, having consumed 37 brutally hot Red Savina peppers in just one minute during a 1966 contest organised by TV producer Gene Rodenberry.  It was this remarkable stamina that ultimately gained him the role of Captain Kirk in Star Trek; his predecessor, Jeffrey Hunter, had managed a measly four peppers before giving up, casting doubts on his ability to play the sort of man who would have sex with a different alien species every week.
