Fran Dando is so scared of bananas that all it needs is a glimpse of one to make her shake, sweat profusely and even vomit.

Sort of like what happens when normal people see Barry Manilow.

Ring, ring, ring, ring, ring...therapy!

Bananaphobia indeed. She needs to tell herself that they are nutritious. I surely don't understand these ailments that people have. Too funny.

Annie: Any Raffi reference is a good reference.

What a coincidence. I have a phobia against women named Fran who are afraid of bananas. I think it's called Franabananaphobia.

snorkaFranabananaphobia!

banana fanna fo Franna

Sorry.

I FELT THIS HORRIBLE, SLIMY THING UNDERNEATH MY BODY

I've had dates like that.

i saw etc., open for etc.

snorks particularly at siouxie adn annie. i think a good therapist could peel away the layers of her problems. she was probly frightened of a gigantic yellow 'nana while in utero...

If she saw one of those things in utero, her mother needed to upgrade her toys. Just sayin'.

You can fry 'em, you can slice 'em
Either way you oughta try some

Oh, bananas have it all
They make berries seem banal
From Montana to Mobile
Have bananas with your meal
They're the answer, what a deal
All your troubles seem to vanish with

No, I have no idea why I memorized this song.

She must have a split personality...

(orange you glad i didn't say banana??)

I now have a fear of songs memorized by MOTW.

i love that banannanananana song!

*snork* at diva and cindy and everyone else

I understand her totally. I am terrified of Broccoli. And don't get me started on asparagus.
I even get nervous sometimes when I see spinach.

I'm scared of cats that play the bass fiddle. Just sayin' (Andy's Gang reference ftw!)

*snork* at Ken's Midnight reference.

Plunk your magic twnager, Froggy.

I'm in love with this girl!

I hate bananas too, but I don't get sick, I just hate the way they smell and taste!

Sometimes a banana is just a banana.
Or not.

i totally get why motw memorized the song and am reminded why she and i had a brief but torrid silliness contest many years ago...

Reference please, mud?

Her condition certainly isn't a-peeling.

*smooch* mud!
