Embarcadero La Pavona. To go to Tortuguero we had to board in one of these boats

Arrest that banana!

Paula T. Calhoun

The European Union Parliament
enacted law with intent to ensure
no unwitting citizen of their continent
would be sold bananas of "abnormal curvature."

Imagine botanists, mathematicians
conferring to determine the norm,
the arc and acceptable positions
of a legal banana's form!

#8 cracked me up.... I like your sense of humor!  What a gorgeous table in #7 bet it needs a crane to lift it. My husband is in the battery business, looking at the photo in #6 made him chuckle. Thank goodness for automotive batteries smile

#5 Love that photo. That story about the banana's never was true, it is a famous EU myth. Wonderful place to go on a vacation though even if there are snakes.

The story about the bananas is very much true, alas:   https://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=CELEX:31994R2257:EN:HTML smile

And no doubt available in 23 languages too, like their vaccine plan. The ordinary people of the EU need to wake up and I say that as a previous supporter.

I will never look at a banana the same way

Well, I know that for a native English speaker it's normal that legislation is in English, but as a native Dutch speaker I do find it no more than normal that the legislation is at least translated in my language too. After all: nobody would accept it if it were vice versa ... As for the vaccines, anybody can plan whatever they want, I'm not taking that vaccine.
