Banana Phone

Banana Man has recently been listed on Amazon Prime, and when we were watching it last week (for the kids you understand) I noticed Banana Man’s far out phone, a Banana Phone!

Hello . . . can you here me?

A phone and a snack, very useful. Are there any other methods of communication that involve eating the communication device? Here are some ideas, some of which have actually been used in fictitious works. Can you guess which?

  • Semaphore Flags made of Rice Paper
  • Roasted Carrier Pigeon
  • A message written on a flatbread using ketchup.

The “real” example used above is of course the roasted carrier pigeon in Blackadder called speckled jim! Video below of court trial:
