In Canada the bananas judge the people. In all other nations it is not so, for everywhere else bananas are eaten, no one asks their opinion on anything. Never is it the other way around, with the fruit of the Musa sapientum in a position of authority. But in this country the banana prevails. It is as the King of Zontar and all live in mortal awe.

No other fruit or vegetable holds such sway over us. Could it be because bananas are not indigenous to this climate? No. For no other tropical fruit has achieved this preponderance of what can only be called ontological hegemony.

Will no one rescue us?
