"The story of the hotdog and the banana"
“The story of the hotdog and the banana”
Once upon a time there was a hotdog and the banana.
One day they had argued.
One said to the other: “you are not healthy”
The other said: “you are not tasty. I have a delicious coat of mayonnaise, ketchup, sometimes a little of mustard and a juicy bun”.
One said: “children want to eat me because I’m full of vitamins and minerals, that make you very big and strong.”
They couldn’t figure it out. The hotdog was worried that the children didn’t like hem anymore and the banana was of course very happy with that because he loves children and really wants them to be very strong and healthy.
Who is right? What is healthy now?…..
