Thank you for all thsoe wonderful comments - I say worship your banana and nobody will be able to tell you that what you are doing is wrong - the religion of bananaism is open to all people and treats all people equal - before you ask - Yes - women can be Ministers within the Church of bananaism and if you want to cover your face with a veil that is your business
alternate poet - I live in Europe - we have very clear rules about the size and shape of Bananas - I worship the slight bend rather than the more exaggerated bend - so I could be said to be of the mild bend sect - medium sized and wonderfully yellow
I cannot find anything of worth in your banana dogma! It is empty of thought or love. My inner peach has the whole mystery and completes me! The peach is love. Follow the peach and you will no longer suffer and your heart will find peace. The peach IS peace! plus it is way juicier than your banana!
cucumberism? too hard to pronounce - I can't get my tongue around it! and if I had a gourd inside me I would look like a pregnant slut! No. I must stay faithful to the doctrine of the holy peach, the goddess peach fulfills me and will ever be my guide and angel through this perilous life. may the peach abide within and peace I shall find as a contemplate her juicy peach flesh.
do you know of any all night produce stands? geez I'm hungry!
Alternate - you have entered the temple of the slightly bent banana and you have kicked over the tables of those of us who trade with the slightly bending banana in the temple of bananaism - let yee take up your bed and walk
the banana jahaadists have really wrecked the world - give yourself (and your money) to the House of the Peach wherefrom doth come all rest, peace and plenitude! Those bananas make me sick with their platitudes - everyone knows that there is no justice from a banana life. Better they should stick to their smoothies!
I don't know what your banana god thinks about people who don't believe in him, but I know that the peach goddess is very sad when she hears that people don't believe in her, and she has been going to therapy with a fairy who knows all about how to get people to really believe - and believe me, it takes a lot more than some hand clapping!
I was, many years ago, a devout follower of Bananaism, but once I was told of how this religion is designed to bend our minds, I switched to Cucumberism. The God of Cucumberism is called Marrow, and has many angels called Zucchini. Bananaism is just crazy, but Cucumberism is THE TRUTH. Bananaists actually eat bananas. A Cucumberist would never, ever eat the holy Cucumber.
It did, but more and more people are realising how banana Bananaism actually is. Bananas don't even have seeds - how boring is that? We Cucumberists decorate our bodies with jewelery made from seeds of the Holy Pumpkin (closely related to Marrow), and our homes with colourful Holy Gourds in praise of the Holy Cucumber and Marrow.
EmpressFelicity - High Priestess of Cucumberism. Sorry, I forgot. It was in 251 AC (After Cucumber) that the written word of Marrow forbade us to refer to the Holy Pumpkin. It is, indeed, the Great Pumpkin.
I thought it was a sin to name that holy fruit which is both large, orange and full of seeds. The fruit or vegetable depending on your denomination ( the great schism of 1502 divided the followers of the aforementioned all seeing orange entity,) has henceforth been referred to as the Great Seed Container on pain of being turned into a pillar of slugs.
With only a pip, berries are nearly as boring as bananas. I mean, how many berries do you need until you have enough pips to make a whole necklace? A lot - right? In Cucumberism, you only need one Pumpkin to make earrings, a necklace, a few bracelets, a belly chain, and ankle chains. Cucumberism IS the way.
You realise you are all going to blend in smoothie hell don't you ! and just to reinforce this message I am going to BURN your cookbooks ! BANANA BANANA BANANA the only true way with spiritual sh@t thrown in.
As a worshipper of the great Banana and the religion of bananaism - I slipped up when I dropped the outer core of my banana Just be aware that bananaism has its faults and I dont want to give the view that bananaism wont leave you flat on your back
Well, I really don't see where the substance in Peachism is. I once searched for my inner Peach, and found only a stone that made me feel very poorly. Find the Gourd in yourself! Open yourself to Cucumberism!
I did once give peas a chance, but a Holy Zucchini came to me and said, 'When thou shalt giveth peas a chance, thou shalt be led into the perilous depths of solanaceous dungeons.' So please, never give peas a chance.
I ma hearing the case for peas - can we take peaism seriously - surely those who have previously worshipped peaism - found that they could easily slip into podism - two peas in one pod - where do we go
Peaism! Peas are a legume. How can you worship a legume? Besides, masturbation is a sin according to the written word of Marrow, and I don't want to be sent to the potatoes. I'm sticking to Cucumberism.
Hush! (whispers) yes, I heard Globe! Can you believe it?
Of course, you can never always trust that what you see is what you get, but if you look closely, the base of his fingernails are green. This is the mark of the initiated elite of the Cult of the Globe Artichoke.
Why are you descrating the mighty spam ? it is a higher deity than any veg that was once worshipped by stone age man !! Spam in its pinkiness that emulates human flesh with that same slimy feel of a sweaty crotch and a sickly sweet back taste of a weed dead drunk.
nectarines are slick tricksters that masquerade as peaches and have tried to usurp the peach's position at the top of the fruit pyramid! Never listen to those nectarines - once they get you in their slimey clutches they will convince you that their nudity is a good thing - while we all KNOW that without the peach's robe of fuzz they are a poor substitute for goodness and sweet righteousness. AMEN!
I thought we had already established that the cucumber and the peach cannot even hang out in the same part of the garden! Our ways are too different - they cannot and will not mingle or even converse. So what is right for the cucumber is definitely wrong for the peach - and besides, peach fur is technically not fur - it is FUZZ!
Mega1 - Mangoism - I am sick of it - Bananaism has been around for thousands of years and has never caused war or conflict - OK - there was the Banana Milk Shake incident - but generally there has been no violence related to Bananaism
the goddess peach made her peace with the banana cult long ago, and while she does not adhere to the principals of bananaism, and especially the banana's chauvinistic attitude toward fruits with pits - she does not make jahaad against them OR their peels. However, the mango, another slick imitator like the nectarine shall never reach the peach nirvana! And all mangoists and nectarinaistas shall forever be reviled! The great peach has spoken. Since the cucumber and the pumpkin and other mundane squashes are VEGETABLES we peachists do not even consider them in the same garden! The peach comes from a venerable TREE!
FURTHER, it has been gossipped about that there was at one time a rift between the yellow and the white peaches. Specifically, there was a debate about the relative sweetness or flavorfulness - some saying the white peaches, while sweet, were not as flavorful as the noble yellow. That debate has died since most are happy with either and no longer try to separate them, there are even some hybrid (mixed marriage) peaches which can contribute the sweet and flavorful attributes of both sects. We are happy to welcome all peaches - size is definitely not an issue! Peace, peachy peace, to you and your banana heads!
Well, I am a Catholic, when was growing up. But I have doubts, took Philosophy and Sociology in college, then I found out it is much easier to debunk the idea that there is no God, so it was kinda cool teaching college later on about it, took you only one minute to negate the idea of God (religion is a required subject at the University I am teaching). But the inner me always believe in it, so in the end until now I still believe in God,and remains a Catholic, although at times I falter. I end up finding another job.
Maybe I can have my own religion, not a fruit, smile,
Dude! I can totally relate, since, when you get to the real core message in the Church of the Peach you find it hard. But when you reach the center of it there is a nut, bitter and sweet - so similar to most religious teachings! However, I've never met a passionfruit so I can't make any judgement about you and yours! It sounds rather funky, no offense!
yes, I love cucumbers too, and eggplant with egg, boil or grill the whole eggplant the longer ones, not the round ones. Then removed the covering, and flatten it, beat an egg with little bit of salt and dip the eggplant there, then cooked it with little oil, fry..yum yum, you can put onions too --
ask mega she might like it too, everytime I cooked it, my girlfriends here say ti is awesome
I adore eggplant - I make an "ambrosia" spread with roasted garlic, roasted eggplant and roasted red peppers - then puree it all together add some salt and spread on fresh bread or toast or crackers or just eat from a spoon - or add to a sandwich - great with turkey and provolone cheese on french bread - oh oh oh! also great as a topping on pizza! oh yummmmmM! I am so hungry!
The poor, poor Gherkin. The Gherkin is of the same species as the Cucumber, and to be reverred in the same way. Unfortunately, non-Cucumberists have been pickling and enclosing them in jars for centuries; an act of severe cruelty. You may recently have read in the news that Cucumberists have begun campaigning against this by freeing Gherkins from their jars in supermarkets on all corners of the globe. Demonstrations are also planned for the near future.
With so many people believing in their own version of what [God] is or isn't; what [He] should should not represent, the question comes to mind if the average person could be or was [God]: What would your ten commandments be?How would you deal with criminals?Would you allow your olnly child to die...
How do you store Banana fruits for more than 2 days?I am fed up with it. We can't store them in a fridge. And keeping outside also does not work. They get black and begin rotting within 2 days. I have to buy only 6 to 8 each time. That is our 2 days consumption. If I buy more, I have to throw them...
