       A Banana Peeler is a personal assistant.

       For all those who think grape scissors are also a valuable, much-needed invention.

       I'll buy one if it will cover the banana in chocolate while it peels the skin off.   

       <aside - anyone recall a character named 'Nana Peel? It popped into my brain when I read this but I can't find a link showing where it comes from.>

       I used to peel bananas from the stalk end. Then after 30 years I found that it is far easier to do it from the other end. Obviously the package labelling needs improvement. I propose that bananas be genetically engineered to grow a pigmented arrangement that reads "open at other end".

       Canuck: Unless you're thinking of Emma Peel of the Avengers - have you ever had something to do with school or community theater? There's a play called "The Great Ice Cream Scheme"; in it, the ice cream store's manager is named "Nana Peel".

       What [DrCurry] said. That anno will actually work in *any* situation.

       [Canuck] My first guess would have been the bananaman comics, but that's just a guess.

       Bananas are easy to peel...what we need is a plantain peeler.
