Orange You Glad I Didn't Say Banana?

At wacky tacky we're not just interested in sedentary pursuits.  As busy as we are in front of the computer researching and planning our next adventure, so are we in developing new and interesting produce.  You didn't know that we were farmers, did you?  In fact, we are doing our best to enrich our world with not just the fruits of our labor, but with the fruits of our trees.  We cultivate, propagate, and demonstrate our organically-grown oranges.*  As a wacky tacky blog exclusive - and world premiere - we unveil our newest crop, a varietal citrus we like to call The Jimmy Durante Orange.

The Jimmy Durante Orange
Latin name - citrus schnozzolae

The resemblance is uncanny....almost Tropicanny...

Yes, the fruit grows compete with all of the facial features.

Seeds for The Jimmy Durante Orange can be purchased by calling Circle 7-2099.  Eat your heart out Gregor Mendel, ha cha cha cha!

"Young at Heart" - Jimmy Durante

What's My Line - Jimmy Durante
I can't help myself...

Cheers & Good Night Mrs. Calabash - wherever you are!

Mr. Tiny

* To tell the truth, we really just have one orange tree that grew one funky orange.


  1. Orange you glad I didn't say Banana is one of our favorite jokes (running it close the the pirate with the steering wheel in his pants). Great orange post.

  2. Thank LV!!!! I had never heard Pirate/Steering Wheel joke; I looked it up and had a good laugh!!!

  3. I must say that you, and only you, are the only one who can blog about an orange and make it wacky tacky. Love it as always Mr. Tiny!
