My wife suffered a little foot in mouth today!

Now before I tell you what happened, I'd like to say that my wife and I are in no way racist, and here's what happened. We were in the city supermarket doing our shopping, and as the bananas at our local covenience store were overpriced and overripe, I pointed out the lovely yellow bananas and asked if she'd like some. She responded with 'Yes, at least they are not black'. She looked up to see a huge black man standing there, and quickly added ' or split and squashy!' The man didn't say anything, so we assume he knew we meant the bananas! Have you ever had to do some quick thinking to get out of a spot?

hahahahaha If anyone would find that racist, they are over-sensitive people. Of course she was talking about the bananas. I'm glad that she was quick enough to confirm that she was talking about the bananas, which DO turn black when they're too mature to eat.

that's really funny muscare! well, bananas also refer to chinese / asians who are yellow on the outside but white (americanised) on the inside! anyway, over-ripe black bananas are also good for this local dish called goreng pisang, or deep fried bananas in batter!
