We Love Being Random! Writing Prompt

Posted by at 7:09 am in Writing Prompt | Permalink

Writingprompt_banana If you spend enough time on the Message Boards, you will notice that some of the threads can get a little. . . well, sometimes a lot. . . RANDOM! Personally, I think it's awesome. Yes, here at THE STACKS, we love randomness!

So today's Writing Prompt is taken from a delightfully random thread started by inkheart fan1435 who asks us to seriously think about and come up with. . . (tee hee). . .

. . . ways to avoid an invasion of evil bananas!

It's an important topic, and it's best to be prepared just in case it ever happens — you never know — so please write your answers in the Comments. How do YOU plan to prevent and/or deal with an invasion of evil bananas? As for me, I changed my Avatar glasses and top to yellow, so when the invasion comes, the bananas will think I'm one of them!

And if you have other random Writing Prompts, add those as well. We'd love to read them!

    I would plan to prevent an evil invasion of banana’s by trying to get everyone to eat the bananas.

    Hahahaha okay yeah it is so important to be prepared just in case bananas attack me in my sleep or something…so…
    Throw your “minon” monkeys at the bananas screaming “MONKEY HEAD BANANA HEAD MONKEY HEAD BANANA HEAD” this will either distract them, confuse them, make them think you’re weird, or scare them. ( I mean, come on who wouldn’t be scared of a person throwing monkeys at you and screaming something random?)
    Or…just wait for them to charge at you and pick them off one at a time…then EAT THEM! :)
    Sorry…i love being random!

    I would probably take the banana leader to MY leader, then when he wasn’t looking, take his head and smoosh him on the wall. That would make all the other bananas run for their lives. Or take a flame thrower and make some fried bananas, I’d love to try evil ones!

    To avoid an banana invasion just show those bananas who’s boss and put them in your ear. They won’t dare mess with you then!

    I would run. Then scream then get a giant monkey to eat them all up so I would not have any more problems

    here is what you need to do to avoid the monkeys:
    1. do the chicken dance in front of the neighbor’s house while singing “twinkle twinkle little star”
    2. run around in the sprinklers in a party dress
    3. stand on your balcony and drop bananas, chocolate sauce, cabbage, spaghetti, and sour cream onto the porch.
    4. Hopefully this will have freaked the bananas out by now, and they will go away.
    5. if the bananas don’t go away, roller-skate around the neighborhood wearing a bikini, sunglasses, boots, and a super-man cape.

    I am putting the top ten ways. Here it comes!
    1. Eat them all! Caution: If they have swords, disarm them.
    2. Get a army.
    3. Slice them up.
    4. Crush them.
    5. Make a smoothie with bananas
    6. Become a anti-banana person. Hopefully bananas will stop being grown.
    7. Dress up as a banana. Hopefully bananas don’t attack bananas!
    8. Hide away in a place that banana’s can’t get to.
    9. Peel them. It will embaress them to be naked and they will avoid you.
    10. Monkeys. They can’t eat them all, so make get them to have ravenoous appetites.
    I hope this works! Good luck on warding off those evil banana’s!

    OK. About the bananas. I’m afraid there is only ONE way to avoid the evil bananas. The answer is…A GROUP OF HUNGRY MONKEYS!!! We’ll have to strategically position all the monkeys around the world and we give them walkie talkies! Then when one monkey spots a banana they use their walkie talkies to alert all the monkeys who will eat the bananas!!! Mwah ha ha ha ha!!!
    Now: How would you free a cat frozen in un-meltable ice?

    Well I was going to say “bring out the bumbling feet” how about instead a giant moon catching net parade (bring on the Silverstein in the situation!)because everyone could take home there own evil banana, but then some mad scientist could start doing genetic testing turning the bananas into man eating ice cream sundaes! What would we do then?

    Ok, I have come up with five fail-proof ways to stop an invasion of bananas
    1. Recruit an army of chimpanzees to eat the bananas
    2. Make an ice cream sundae launcher to make them all banana splits, in which they will split, a term used as leaving
    3. Do the Peanut Butter Jelly Time dance with Brian from Family Guy, forcing them to dance with you. Then, while they are dancing uncontrollably, have a dog eat them, because dogs eat everything!
    4.Lead them into a giant blender, then blend them, making banana smoothies for everyone on the planet for 10 years!
    5. Create a device that will take the Earth off its orbit like Doctor Impossible did in the book “Someday I will be Invincible” (great book by the way just finished it last night) and send the Earth spiraling into the Sun. Hey, we all be toast, but it wasn’t by the banana invasion, was it?

    One way to avoid a banana invasion is to stop people from teaching them to be boomerangs. Without those skills they could never prepare an invasion!

    If an invasion of evil bananas happened. I would throw apples at them and eat them. Then when I am done eating the first half I’ll use the banana peels to make the rest of the evil bananas slip.

    Call the ice cream parlors around your town and buy a bunch of ice cream(for banana splits)and get a bunch of hungry monkeys.Or you could use swords to slice them, then bring them to a food bank and make free banana splits.It would also scare the other bananas if they see others like them being eaten.

    How to avoid banana invasions:
    -bananas hate apples so change EVERYTHING in your town to apples
    - say ” i can haz a chezburger” every time they start to talk
    -listen to Justin Bieber; bananas hate him SO much that they’ll leave
    -use a flashlight to signal random Morse code stuff
    -FOOD FIGHT!!!!
    -do the chicken dance
    -sing the Barney song
    -point a wand at the banana and say “Expelliaramus!!!”

    If bananas appeared on Earth, I would make a peace sign poster and say,”We come in peace.” Then I would put my hands together and bow to the bananas. (Although they might think I’m their servant so no.) Then I would tell them where the space shuttle is and call it a banana store, and then I would press the Launch button and they would be destroyed. Haha on that. :D

    Tee-hee. I laughed SO HARD when I read the list (Which I probably shouldn’t have, because now I can’t think of any good ones), and I just HAD to read it aloud to my mom. I could stop laughing while I was reading it! (Then again, I’m told I have ‘issues’. *cough* TRAVIS! *cough*)
    Either way it’s awesome!
    So, to this prompt… How about “Write a bunch of percent signs in Gothic Calligraphy on printer paper and call them your ‘minons’.”
    (I did it! I swear I did! And their cute-ish-ness will ward off plagerizers and evil bananas! HA HA HA HA MWA!
    For Marytonga’s prompt (Hi!), how about…
    “Every time you hear someone say a word, like ‘hope’ or ‘and’, eat an M&M.” (My family did it on Monday night. It’s awesome-ly fun.)
    Unfortunately, I can only think of one. I can feel ‘Writer’s Block’ coming on. (*shudders*)
    Ooh! Ooh! How about a prompt on random, completely made-up sayings! Like, “This guy is falling! This guy is falling!” (Say it out loud. You’ll get it.)

    I’m afraid there’s only one way to stop those evil bananas, and that is to get in on the inside – double agent style. It’s time to get that old banana costume out because in order to stop them, we’ve got to be one of them. We’ve got to think like one of them. We’ve got to eat them…although that might blow our cover. Man, this is getting intense, right? Well, please excuse me as I go act as James Banana would. Dununununnunununununun! Dee da do de da! (sung to James Bond…I mean James Banana them song… :) Talk to you later my dear bananas!
    P.S. I garuntee you that I am not going bananas, all though I must ask…have you seen my marbles? It appears I’ve lost them. :)

    Make sure we always give bannanas lots of love and attention. Bannanas can get moody, and they do have power. LOTS of it. And Join TOFBLAK, The Orginization For Bannana Love And Kindness!

    LOL. That’s funny! Here’s my idea:
    Find a crew of super cucumbers. They will kick all of the bannanas in the face and pin them to the ground. Then, they will squish them until they explode and get everyone all gooey.
    The end. X)

    one way to get rid of an invasion of evil bananas is to hire ninja carrots.
    short background on ninja carrots:
    “Baby carrots, its time to save your country.” master Salad said
    “okay, master!” they all yelled
    and so the carrots began to fight the bananas!
