They say that the banana may become extinct . I’ve been shocked by the sarcastic nature of some of the reports I have read on the news. Maybe it’s something about the name. Banana. It’s kind of funny.
I’m trying to imagine a world without the banana. If the banana were to became extinct(something that I can’t accept anyway) it would surely be the most widely felt extinction of any life form in modern times. Imagine telling young kids in 10 years or so that their banana flavoured ice cream was actually based on a fruit that no longer existed. No more ‘slipping on the banana skin’ gags. What would happen to B1 and B2? No more banana splits. And then there are the people who actually depend on the banana for food.
