Lunchtime Conversations… Blackberry=Tamagotchi, KTV is dirty and Karaoke is not, and stress free pigs

It was a big Banana group (9 bananas altogether) – it was the usual Friday get wild Banana Lunch time party and we decided to head out in 2 banana cars. Destination? Japanaese good food.

The place that we were headed was known for it’s tonkatsu, amongst other things. And the pork they use is not just any pork, mind you. Supposedly, the pork comes from pigs that are stress free, and they come from a particular breed of pigs (the Black Pig). The following is taken from the restaurant’s web page.


“Naturally Tastier.

Berkshire matures into delicious, juicy cuts and steaks.

Numbering from the 100’s on the low end to the 1,000’s on the high end—worldwide-the breed is quite rare. Yet thanks to the efforts of farmers loyal to the Berkshire’s strong reputation for superior quality, the population is growing.

We ensure a stress-free lifestyle—imagine if we were to tell Lord Rannoch (our prized Highland breeding steer) that the daily massage is off the menu! [Are you serious? Do you know how much we Bananas have to pay to get our massages??? Seriously though, I wonder if these pigs can get like Shoulder and Neck Massages, or maybe opt for Shiatsu massages, or the Swedish kinds… Although the hot stones massage treatment will probably mean something very different for them :)]

But the food was good – the tonkatsu that I had was juicy and tender.

Chief Banana Concludes – massages indeed make for very delicious pork. Bananas on the other hand, don’t like to be massaged… It would be a very messy affair.

KTV is Dirty, Karaoke is not

For some reason, Burnt Banana Girl 1 had the impression that KTV (vs Karaoke places, but they actually refer to the same place) referred to Karaoke places that were “dirty” [meaning that there were women available at those places as “personal hostess” and there was probably more touching than there was singing]. Therefore, to her, places like “Party World KTV” was not suitable for wholesome singing fun, but “Kbox Karaoke” is – (Chief Banana: that is absolutely not true, and Chief Banana has gone his way to correct Burnt Banana’s Girl impressions.. He cannot vouch for KTV places with names like “Lulu’s KTV”, or “Candy KTV Bar”…

Blackberry = Tamagotchi

One of the Banana Friends noticed that Short Banana was pretty much addicted to his Blackberry. Short Banana was asked if he also used his Blackberry in the elevator, because “he probably just like, checked his email in the office just seconds before he left his cubicle… and you need to check your email again???” Chief Banana, who was one of those that does exactly that, offered his defence of that action

Chief Banana: It’s necessary to be productive, even when you’re just waiting for the lift. Besides, it’s an excellent way to look busy and important. Plus, it’s a great accessory to avoid ackward silences when you’re in the lift (going down 36 floors) with someone that you vaguely know but not enough to strike a conversation

 The bunch of Bananas around Chief Banana also made the observation that Blackberrys was like playing your tamagotchis… just like the tamagotchis need attention, you need to quickly attend to your Blackberry whenver the red light indicator (that an email has arrived) lights up. Nothing else on earth warrants attention so much so like the Blackberry e.g. whenever a fire alarm sounds in the office, any banana would “continue on this call until some seconds later and they will think to themselves  “so noisy – someone please turn it off”  as opposed to “Ï gotta haul my banana ass out of here fast!” But with a blackberry, the slightest vibration and a bit of red flashes, and the hand flashes out and starts fondling the blackberry with the most intense focus that a person could offer! 

Another Banana friend gets named

Another Banana friend gets named… BaXX [snazzier version of Banana XX which has simply no meaning whatsoever]
