Question of the Day, December 2, 2010



Some UK game retailers are selling Donkey Kong Country Returns in return for bananas [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/105772-Retailer-Goes-Bananas-Exchanges-Videogames-for-Fruit]. If you could pay for any game with a fruit, what fruit would it be?

Apples, I can get a boatload of 'em cheap and don't really like them. Hmm, I wonder if I don't like apples because of Apple, or Apple because of apples.

I would suggest another fruit beyond all of those; durians.

Seriously, they don't get enough love. They only game I've seen them in is Super Mario Sunshine, back in the GCN days. Additionally, they're available in the international market in a neighboring city that's within driving distance, so it'd be a unique experience getting them, as well.

I'm a massive fruit fan, so if it was anything else I'd end up munching it all hrrrr.

Besides. We need to think practicality here!

Grapes, when you have leftover change, just pop it into your mouth, no peeling or half-eaten fruit leftover.

Durians! That way all the people without decent senses of smell will naturally become the worlds greatest money brokers!

(If you've never smelled a durian I have friends who can attest that you're missing the sensation of a lifetime!)

Durians?! Those are munitions!

No no no, we're safer with using raspberries. So long as no one has a 16-ton weight or tiger handy, that is...

Bananas are the cheapest fruits on this list to stock up on. Unless exchange rates start getting to be too crazy, like if 10 Bananas is only worth 3 Fuji Apples.
