//I like how at the beginning of the banana vs. olive sketch, you think it’s going to be a nice little lecture about acceptance and respecting other people’s opinions, when actually, it turns out just to be about the horribleness of olives.

And how great bananas are.

Yep. He just really, really, *really* hates olives. Like all right-thinking people everywhere.

//*shy voice* I like olives!

Forget olives, EVERYONE loves bananas, that’s the important part.

EVERYONE

My mum’s allergic to bananas.

Ah but that’s not the same as disliking the flavour!

(Also I’m very sorry for your mum)

True, true. She does eat dried banana, so I suppose I’d have to agree with your assertion that everyone likes bananas.

I used to not like banana, but I’ve seen the error of my ways now.

Everyone likes bananas. Even allergic people.

In the end, we all convert to the Banana.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN?! (x)

Aah! I’m surprised he didn’t delete this. You need to post all the confused responses to his tweet as well; people were absolutely determined to find some inner meaning, when it transpires he probably just sat on his phone by mistake.

It feels like a tweet to be deleted but then - John has now learned it’s no use deleting them - they are ALL saved somewhere somehow.

Some of the reactions are absolutely brilliant.

//I like how at the beginning of the banana vs. olive sketch, you…

I don’t like bananas, they were ruined by the “banana flavoured” antibiotics I had to have every time I went to the doctor until I was 12 :/ Still not over that nearly 20 years later. 

Ow no :( ok but that’s a weird exception to the rule, you’d love bananas otherwise :)

Does it just confuse matters if I qualify my position by declaring that I only like bananas when they are underripe and still slightly green? I don’t like them when they get that weird metallic smell and go all squishy.

Ah! But you DO like bananas, in some form or another! This totally counts on my list of EVERYONE LIKES BANANAS

//I just really love what John Finnemore did with the character of Carolyn Knapp-Shappey.

Like, sod off, she’s not just any little old woman, MJN revolves around her and this is her story, even if you probably don’t realise it.

Yes, she’s old, but she’s never going to be anyone’s loving, nurturing Grandma or mother. She can be all of those things, but it’s not the point of her.

Yes, she’s old, sod it all, I’m going to give her a love interest despite her age, and it’s one of the most authentic, heartwarming relationships in the series, without making Carolyn anything she hasn’t been before she met Herc.

Yes, she’s a businesswoman, but no, she’s not perfect at it.

Yes, she’s tough, but she depends on others, because she’s only human.

Yes, she cares, but she can see the difference between things that are important and things that aren’t.

No, she’s neither evil nor grandmotherly, despite being old.

Yes, she’s a single mother who lives with her thirty-year old son, and no, she doesn’t bloody need anyone to help her handle Arthur.

Yes, she’s the Alpha Dog, and yes, she calls male pilots out on their sexism, because whyever not?

She’s cold, but sweet, tough, but weak, proud, but childish, clever, but doesn’t always make the right decisions, she’s an old lady, but she will kick your arse.

She was never supposed to be perfect, and that’s what makes her so wonderful.

I don’t like bananas, not even the smell. The same is true for olives.

But have you tried a banana. Maybe it was an olive.
