    Went to the grocery yesterday and bananas have gone from 49 cents a lb last week to 70 cents.

    What are you paying?

    Yes, we have no bananas
    We have no bananas today
    Just try those coconuts
    Those wall-nuts and doughnuts
    There ain't many nuts like they.
    We'll sell you two kinds of red herring,
    Dark brown, and ball-bearing.
    But yes, we have no bananas
    We have no bananas today.


    And I'm not going to have bananas if they cost $0.70 per pound. [​IMG] I love bananas.

    Don't expect the price to come down any time soon. I think all bananas are imported, so we pay for shipping and trucking costs with our delicious bananas.

    $1.29/pound - cheapest produce in the store. I won't even tell you what tomatoes go for.
