Ho! True enough, Mr H. Shows you how much they know! Nevertheless....good point, could cause confusion and unrest, particularly amongst the more militant botanists. Could reword the question along the lines of 'name the song that could be found in a fruit and veg shop'...
Did we not also have a brazilian cucumber?

Great idea. Any others in a similar vein, like:

Which song could be found in a Chemist's shop?

We certainly did, so a related question might be "Who might be sniffing the produce of a Greengrocer's?"
Boldly going.......

(Twitch, Fumble, Feeling of Restlessness....) There could be two (arguably three) answers to this, depending on the chemist....

More....How about:

Why is 'A Sad Song' listed under G?

How come the link to George's site is still out of date?

What did Tweke hear for the first time the other day?

I'm stuck on four, Nick. After all, they did use to introduce it as 'The Vegetable Song'...

Banana is the common name for various herbaceous plants of the genus Musa. My belief is that they are vegetables, even though conventional botanists will try to tell you that the yellow Cavendish banana is strictly a fruit. Anyway, bananas will outlive the Cavendish which is currently as you know self-destructing.  However, the Cavendish is a tiny part of existing banana germplasm. The much more diverse plantain and even banana hearts are both vegetables used as staples by large numbers of people in tropical countries....

Go for it, Saint!

Right, I'm on a roll. In more ways than one. How about:

How many times has Deke taken the easy way out?

Complete this song title: 'Hard Way To ?'

My favourite so far is definitely "Who shot Micky?"

The evidence is not conclusive...we see a man with a gun, not a man shooting...picky pick pick...

Easy....it's DL (or should that be RL?). What's in his right hand?

For all those of us who used to be in U.N.C.L.E.

Who was it going on about Blue/black potatoes the other day? I thought StEvil, but can't see the message.
I had some the other day, peculiar things. Not like your purple carrots, or purple podded peas that go to a "normal" colour when cooked (orange and green). These tates stay a bluey-purpley-black colour, all the way through, and retain the colour on the plate. Taste like potatoes, but don't look like them.. Came from Norway, where they're suposed to grow best in the long cool summer days.. 
Virgin places don't mean a thing to people who never bring their hearts along.

in high school i used to get a ride early in the morning with my dad before he went to work.there was this other strange artistic kid who used to get there early too.well one time he brought some banana peels to school.we went out to the woods and well we "smoked up".but the results were nebulous at best.maybe there is a certain way to prepare them that im not aware of.i can't remember all the details.i think he tried to dry them out first or something.that kid was a strange bird and yes it takes one to know one (although i think he eclipsed me in that department) but he could really draw,very artistic ...

That's easy, Martin: The one shooting Micky yelled "FREEEEZE!!!" some ten minutes before. Malcolm surely didn't want to get shot.
