Monty Python has an excellent video on Self Defense Against Fresh Fruit.

Don't mess with a banana yielding one.

bet he peeled out of the parking lot.

I hope they discounted that banana. No way it should sell at full price.

Would be robber splits..Ben and Jerry’s newest flavor

Somewhere, John Cleese is smiling.

You can fry 'em, you can slice 'em
Either way you oughta try some .. BANANAS
They are great with coconut or
chocolate sauce or peanut butter .. BANANAS
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 .. BANANAS! (cha-cha-cha)
