macho banana

Last night we went to the store to do some grocery shopping. We went over to the produce section. While I was busy looking through some oranges or something I hear Jorge say, "Look at this!". I looked up to find this.

(This is a normal size gallon of milk, for comparison.)

(This weights .825 kg = 1.81 lbs. That is one macho banana.)

I immediately wanted to get out the iPhone and take a picture of it. I didn't have my iPhone with me. Unlike a large bottle of tequila, I could easily afford this item. An instant after realizing I didn't have the iPhone, I said I wanted to buy it. Jorge said, "Why, so you can take a picture of it and show your friends?". OF COURSE! Who wouldn't be amused to see such a large banana?

Even laying in bed last night I kept laughing silently thinking about how obscenely big it is. Where did this banana come from? Did it get dug up along with that dinosaur chicken egg? Is there some place in Mexico where giants live? That could definitely be a road trip!

Holy Cow!! Seriously, I sat here at my computer and said, "Whooaaa!" out loud. I didn't really grasp how big it was until I saw the girls holding it. Too funny.

Oh my gosh, that's hilarious. I've NEVER seen a banana that big, and that last picture of your little girl cracks me up. Her little grin is priceless. :)

This may be one of the funniest things I have ever seen! I'm with you on the Giants-living-in-Mexico idea!
