So, to lighten the mood today at work I decided to make my way around the office (during lunch time of course) to start random conversations with the "usual" to pass some time. I've been known to have a dry sense of humor, or so they say - I specifically drummed up the talking points around gun control. Mind you, most people at my office know I like and carry guns, and usually they give me their time even though they do not always agree.

So, to help alleviate my mental load for today, I decided to use the slang term "Banana Clips" at any instance I could. I must have said it 30 times to 10 different people. I actually cracked myself up a couple times thinking.... "What the hell am I saying! [rofl]

Seriously though, have you ever said "Banana Clip"?

By the time I was done with the last co-worker the word "Banana" turned into "Bay-nay-nay Clip"! Shit I'm crackin' up just now typing this crap. HA![rofl]

But seriously, there's something romantic with the phrase Banana Clips. If you haven't spouted the words Banana Clips together I suggest you do.

My goal is to say the word Banana Clips so much that the media picks up on it. I'm awaiting the day Cadillac Deval speaks these two words at the podium. [laugh]

The clincher: Unbeknown to my old man (A Vietnam Vet) about my epic work conversations today he decided to tell me about "Banana Clips" tonight. I nearly dropped the phone.... His actions prompted me to write this thread.

Rant over....

Shits so serious lately.... lighten up and say Banana Clips with me![smile]

Even better, click on the button to insert a video in your post. It says "Insert Video Clip".
