Look what Larry did!!

This is the latest Cyclone Larry email making the rounds. I've been sent this twice, so far. Not sure if it's in really poor taste (as opposed to just average poor taste), but it's the only picture of the devastation that I have. To those who were not aware, about 80% of Australia's banana crops were destroyed in Cyclone Larry.

Not sure if overseas readers are aware of Bananas in Pyjamas - B1 and B2. If not, it may be totally lost on them. I think I heard that the trees still standing will produce again in 8 months. Things certainly grow quickly in the tropics, although not quickly enough if you're waiting to pay your bills.

Yep, don't know about bananas in pajamas...but I feel sorry for them.
Seriously though, that devestation looks horrible. Those poor banana growers.
It's good that things grow fast up there in the tropics. Well, that would be down there, if you're up here..if you know what I mean...since you're down under....um. Never mind. Hope you're having a great day Tanya :)

I also don't know anything about bananas in pajamas, but hope that the banana growers had some kind of insurance to cover their losses.

The dead Bananas in Pyjamas really make that picture. When I was in Aussieland, I had a drink called Bananas in Pyjamas, and couldn't get that stupid song out of my head afterwards. I have a feeling that the song will now be stuck again. :)
