What I learned tonight is a banana is a fruit of an herb. Let me start by saying, this is not a common fact, but it might be now to some of you. Because if you read something and understand that something it can become a common fact. First I will show you two pictures

Picture A is a common herb, basil.

Picture B is an un common herb, banana tree.

Now picture B is not really a banana tree, but a banana herb. Bananas are really good for you so it would make sense that it is a herb. Well that might not make sense but it does make sense that it is a herb because well they look the same. They both are green. Ever heard of herb grass, yeah it is green. The issue I have with many people is they are to critical about bananas, I love bananas and think they are underappreciated. They grow from a tall herb, most herbs are short, but not the banana herb. The facts are that it is harder to grow from a tall herb than a small herb*. Herbivores are plant eating animals. So if a monkey is eating a banana than it is a herb eating herbivore. Say that 5 times really fast. Fun, huh? Now stick your tongue out and say that 5 times really fast, more fun, huh?  You may eat a banana a day to keep the doctor away but that won’t work, that only works for apples. The real story is humans average 28 pounds of bananas eaten a year. I suggest we get that average up! By 2011 I want to see the human peoples eat 29 pound per year! Together we can do this for the tall herbs. The herbs forgotten, the herbs lost, and for the herbs called trees, the banana trees. Find a banana herb and eat away my friends, I am counting on you.
