Banana vs. Mosquito

OK, so you know how when you’re a kid you always played with bananas as toy guns? Uh… no? Well I did anyway! I’m very proud to report that I just killed a mosquito with a banana!

A few minutes ago, I spotted a mosquito perched on a cupboard in the kitchen. Naturally (for me anyway), I thought I’d reach over to the fruit plate and pick up a big banana to whack the mosquito! After all, I thought a tissue or something isn’t anywhere near as solid as a good banana (as long as the banana isn’t over-ripe), and so the mosquito could have escaped!

So I took a swing, and… missed! You know, it’s actually quite hard since bananas are kind of narrow. Anyhow I quickly moved to hit it again, and although it had just took flight to attempt an escape, one deftly-executed, wonderfully satisfying thwack! later, the mosquito was officially smooshed and the banana was not. Yay!

Don’t worry, I rinsed the end of the banana under the tap and dried it (as you do) to make sure it was clean again. :D

Banana, 225 mm long
The almighty lethal banana, 22.5 cm long. Naughty mosquitoes, just you wait!
