His Name is Eddie


This friendly banana, who resides at Taylor's Meat and Produce Market, has a talk bubble that says "Hello, my name is Eddie!  How may I help?"  I was very curious about Eddie, the Talking Banana.  But when I asked the guy at the checkout why they had a banana named Eddie, working in the produce department, he said, "You know, I have no idea!"  Well, the mysteries just keep rolling in, folks!

  2. Haha, actually that's adorable - could Eddie visit Princeton for a bit, our produce would love talking company:)

  3. A lover of signs and messages, I think. I can't help notice the 'Take me to school' sign below. Smashing!

  5. Eddie was a mystery to even his closest associates, but even so, he was a smooth operator. He had a thick skin, but was easily bruised. And inside: Eddie was one big softie. He didn't say much, but somehow he spoke to me just the same. Complex, subtle, famous Eddie.

    1. Oh, Buck! I think you have captured the true essence of Eddie. Apparently, like his peel, it had slipped through my fingers (toes?)...

  6. It's no mystery, however, that Taylor's has good quality meat. It's definitely worth a stop.

    1. No mystery, whatsoever. The produce is great, too. Have you had their broccoli?

  7. I thought all bananas had names beginning with B? I've known (and eaten) many Bernis and Buddys and Barts in my time.

    1. Good point. Bob was an especially tasty banana. But, oh dear, Bellis - I hope no one mistakes you for a banana... Maybe Eddie is the King of the Bananas, and got to pick his own, Non-B, name?
