Well you know how goood it feels to write on a banana with a biro - well why dont they make a special paper from this banana skin, making it the slickest paper in the world to write with. It would be biodegradable and could come in `organic` flavours too. smooth organic slick efficient writing paper with style... mmm.

Provided it is banana. On topic though, an old uni friend of mine tried to post me a banana across the UK. He wrote the address on the (still pretty green) nin-nan, put £1 worth of stamps on it and popped it in the letter box. Guess what?. The bugger never showed. Must have got to the sorting office at about 11 a.m.
I couldn't believe it.

       You have to copy over all these notes again before they turn black. +

       there is probably a law against sticking the queen's head on a banana. its a wonder that you are not ensconced in the tower, or perhaps you are.

       I don't believe I've ever written on a banana before. Hard to imagine the circumstance under which this would occur.

       writing on a pineapple is a pain.

       I Know what you mean [po] - Heads on Spikes!.
He also tried sending me a 7" Based Pyramid as well. Sadly, that went the same way - Except maybe it wasn't eaten.

       This [Oliiii] is clearly a lover of life, to savor this small pleasure. I look forward to future ideas. And also here's some precrumbs for you.

       The phrase "I will eat my own words" never made more sense.

       Okay, so people write on bananas. Who knew...   

       I have no bananas at the moment or I'd go join the banana writing club right now. In lieu of that, I wonder, is it anything like writing on rubber? Particularly light coloured rubber or soft latex, that grips the ballpoint and creates a satisfying writing experience. Is this the kind of thing you're going for? That I have done.   

       I wonder, is it possible to make the ball in ballpoint pens out of rubber?

       If you drop a piece of this on the floor, everyone will slip on the paper? No more paper cuts, now we will have Banana Paper fractures. Gets my vote.

       BritUSA, you have to make sense. understand?
po, Dec 07 2003
  

       Write on a banana with this [link] and double your pleasure.   

       (Po) I may not make sense, but I make a lot of "cents" here. Teletubbies rule however.
BritUSA, Dec 08 2003
  

       How about someone halfbaking some fruit roll-up paper. Sure it would be sticky and sweet, but no more wincing as you chew the 'evidence' to dispose of it.

       hhmmmmm! a teletubby lover with money <thinks I'm well in here> :)

       Is that a pad of paper in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me? (WTAGIPBAN)

       Oliii’s banana papers are goood and smooooth. All those extra vowels... mmm... consonants too.

A plus if I can have a banana skin keyboard.

       This banana skin paper is great, but I hate that little sticker they put on every page.
AO, Dec 09 2003
  

       Great idea ... except paper is already being made from Banana's - not from the skin, but from the trunk which has long, strong fibers. More info on our website www.papyrusinternational.org and yes. The paper is NOT slippery, but it does keep its strength when wet, and is resistant to grease and flame.

       Couldn't banana peel be an invisible writing, or communication channel? You write by pressing on the peel, when the banana ripens it shows up as black marks. Imagine prisoners of FARC in Colombia smuggling out bananas of their whereabouts, or, a twitter-like service from picker to consumer.
