Hallmark Rejects: Happy Fathers' Day

Papaya! They're a lot like fathers, did you know?

  • They're also pronounced "papaw" or "pawpaw" JUST like fathers; 
  • It is native to the tropics of the Americas, perhaps from southern Mexico JUST like some American fathers!;
  • The lower trunk (of the tree) is conspicuously scarred where leaves and fruit were borne JUST like ... well, Mothers, ... but fathers are forever INconspicuously scarred from kids, too.
  • The fruit is ripe when it feels soft JUST like fathers, who get softer as they "ripen."
  • Pests kill papayas, JUST like pestering makes fathers want to kill. 
The most fitting fruit for fathers' day. Happy Fathers' Day Dad!
