PostSubject: Going bananas   Tue Nov 06, 2007 7:48 am

I had a phone call yesterday, and the woman on the line introduced herself as "Chiquita". I was sure it was a prank call at first . . . . I expected her to say "Oh, it's later than I thought - I gotta split!" or some silly thing. But her name really was Chiquita! Then later at the store, I heard a Mother say "Dole! Get back here right now!". ROTFL If I hear someone call their child Del Monte, I'm going to be SURE that I've gone bananas. As for me........I don't really find the names . . . . . "a-peeling". batEyes

Let the punning begin. :Hahaha:

Chiquita? Dole?? Wouldn't surprise me if those people were both fruits. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Cool

Well, Gwyneth Paltrow named her daughter Apple, and I think that's awful coming from someone who has such a beautiful name herself.

Dole, just gross! LOL!

Chiquita? Amazing! In Spanish "Chiquita" means "very little" in its feminine way (in its masculine it should have been "Chiquito")...Here in my country, "Chiquita" could be a nice nickname. We even have a TV show-woman nicknamed "Chiquita Legrand" (she is named Mirtha legrand), that would mean "The Little One Legrand", or something similar.

And it's really hilarious, for this "Little One" is near 80 years old! ROTFL :haha:

But there is a thing I don't understand...In which way "Chiquita" and "Dole" are related to BANANAS? These are kind of bananas? :think: I've never heard about them.

May I slip into the conversation and say that people name their kids some fruity names? Where do they shop for clothes at? Banana Republic?
