The advantage to being a teacher is a bit more time in the summer, so here is an extra midweek special bit of silliness, especially for my pal Phil, at Boot Bananas. It can be hard to tell a friend they have an odour problem, especially if you’re too busy retching every time they take their boots off. If you have a climbing buddy who’s footwear breaches local public health by-laws and presents a danger to small children and wildlife, try subtly sharing this cartoon with them. If that doesn’t work, tag them in it or photoshop their face into it. Encouraging them to increase their fruit and veg in the ‘banana department’ could save a friendship and the obvious difficulties likely to arise from being arrested when you finally set fire to their boots for the good of the planet.
