Me having a Mango fall from a tree limb that was about 20-30ft above me (will leave that typo in) head. Clocked me right on top of my helmet. Thank God i was wearing one (i wear one if i go over 2 miles one way from my house. The video of the mango attack would be hilarious. "Death by Mango". Thank God it wasn't a coconut.

That would be a great video.....a mango in your "coconut" actually.

Mangos always seemed more friendly than that. I'm envious....dream of some day living with a mango tree in the yard. Apples are so...pedestrian. Yawn emoticon

I hate you! Okay, just kidding. Envy all around. Remember looking out a window in Mexico and seeing a mango tree absolutely full of fruit. Thought I was in heaven. Wha? emoticon

Ha, Judy, your Hawaiian alter ego wouldn't be Princess Poo-Poo-Ly, would it?

As a dangerously bad ukulele player, I'm intimately familiar with the 1940 Harry Owens/Hilo Hattie hapa haole hit "Princess Poo-Poo-Ly has Plenty Papaya (And She Loves to Give It Away)."

The weirdest shit I saw today was when I saw a North Carolina newspaper front page shown on local TV news (here in New Zealand).

The headline was carrying the tragic news of the church shooting in N.C .....but what was weird ....was a gun shop had stuck a sticker advertising a gun sale right over the headline at the top of the front page.

The sticker was a quick way for these opportunistic bastards to take advantage of the fears of people after yet another gun tragedy.

This goes beyond weird. Its a fucking indictment!

I cant believe how people accept this crap and allow it to perpetuate in their society.

Truly SNAFU U.S.A

My sympathy to those affected.

Oh, me likes! Used to die for mangos, but papaya has caught up IMHO. Have to say I'm partial to Mexican ones, but they're easier to get here, and I have some loyalty to Mrs. f's birth country.

SilverStreak, is that just me, or is there some naughtiness in that song? Wha? emoticon "Papaya" in Latin America can get people in trouble...even Mitt Romney.

Heh, no... it's not just you. Much double entendre there.

I'm pretty sure the alternate meaning of "papayas" in this hapa-Hawaiian song was relating to a different part of the female anatomy, though.

Death by Tray might be worse but fruit is dangerous too.

While checking out of our hotel room yesterday, the guy in the room next door came out. Talking to apparently no one. Until we noticed the bird on his shoulder.

The bird. With underwear. Flora print underwear. "She" was evidently a "very good girl" though we were mystified as to why he let her go out topless!

Caused a bit of a flap (see what I did there?!) in the lobby when another guest's dog spotted her. Guessing the owner was grateful for her underwear then...
