BANANAS

Right was arguing about this at work earlier.

Is a banana a fruit or a herb?

From "Ask Oxford"

Both. A banana (the yellow thing you peel and eat) is undoubtedly a fruit (containing the seeds of the plant: see answer regarding tomatoes), though since commercially grown banana plants are sterile, the seeds are reduced to little specks. However, the banana plant, though it is called a 'banana-tree' in popular usage, is technically regarded as a herbaceous plant (or 'herb'), not a tree, because the stem does not contain true woody tissue.

Christ, one minute I'm reading about Fuji pixelation and the next it's fcuking bananas.

I think I'll just go and hang myself somewhere quiet.

Duckster, you really need to improve the quality of the arguments you have at work... :roll:

I've just argued with my boss about why we can't hold our team meeting in the pub... (well the sun's over the yard-arm SOMEWHERE in the world right now!) :lol:

And strangely so are pineapples P&B. Any other fruit inspired military equipment out there? Having an apple mac in the office doesnt count
