Caulfield: If banana peels are so slippery, why don't we wipe them on bike chains?
Mrs. Olsen: Go ask Frazz. He's the big bike guy.
Caulfield: That was a pleasant surprise.
Frazz: Are you sure she meant right this instant?
I get the feeling that, like Calvin’s parents, this kid’s parents are glad when the school year begins.
She should answer: “Because the banana juice would quickly dry out and the chain would bind and wear out faster than if oil had been used”.
That’s an excellent question Caulfield – I want you to research that and write a 3-page report, due on my desk on Monday…
On a hard surface under the pressure of a foot, they turn quite squishy and thus slippery.
Close enough Frazz.
Mushy, greasy black peels are good for that. Bonus: they smell bad. Which kids should love, along with flies.
The correct answer would be: “That’s a good question. Have a 1 page report on my desk tomorrow for why they don’t do that.”
