Let's Make It A Rap!

I had to write a hub after reading some comments today about an article dealing with packaging bananas. No, its not big news about the political race or the nuclear arms race for that matter. But, we do have to acknowledge irony when we see it. You can make up your own tune and sing this rap song karaoke style:

"Somethings gone wrong I want you to know. Food’s being wrapped so the insides will show.

Some great brains took the peel off! Now banana’s in plastic and it’s making me scoff.

I thought the wrapper came with the fruit? But gotta use plastic. Let’s all pollute.

Refrain: Making More Trash, Plastic is King. Fill Those Landfills! And we’ll all sing: Something's not right. Yeah, I say, Something's not right. That’s Right!

They’ll peel carrots and strip cucumbers. Throw in a bag In very high numbers.

They just don’t get it. There’s no thought. What food really is they haven’t been taught.

There’s some DEHA, along with the "Bs"-- For Bisphenyl A and Banana, Yummy!

Not to mention, whose handling that food? Big chance of toxins after its chewed.

Repeat Refrain: Making More Trash. Plastic is King. Fill Those Landfills And we’ll all sing: Something's not right. Yeah, I say, Somethings not right. That’s right!


I'm sure this song won't be the theme song for the green movement or recycling. It definitely won't win any award at the 2012 International Songwriter's Competition. However, how asinine is this? This brings up other questions. Have we become so conditioned to technology, that it is a major inconvenience to peel a banana ourselves? Perhaps we are so profit-driven that placing three bananas in a symmetrical pattern will have them flying off the grocery case? Perhaps, we'll never know the reason why.

It still is important to highlight the downsides of the excessive use of plastics in our enviroment as well as the potential health implications. Below are some websites to peruse.
