And the quote of the day is...

From my International Trade Law class readings - from an article titled "Bananas: Differentiating Tariffs According to Social, Environmental and/or Economic Criteria" written on behalf of EUROBAN (European Banana Action Network) by Liz Parker and James Harrison. European Banana Action Network. That's pretty funny in and of itself. But it only gets better:

"Whilst all bananas may be yellow and bendy, the physical characteristics of a product is only one of the criteria specified by past GATT panels."


Bananas are bendy?

Have these authors ever eaten a banana?

Or for that matter stroked a banana?
