No bananas? Is that really a thing?

Recommended Posts

Would love to hear how much of this story on fishermen's superstitions actually rings true. 


“As far as bananas and things like that, bring all the bananas you want. That was started from the sailing days when the bananas used to carry a type of spider that used to come and kill the crew. In the sailing days they would get bananas in the Caribbean, or wherever they grow. They would load them in cargo ships and when the crews would go to sleep these poisonous spiders would come out and half the time they would show up with a dead crew. It became the bananas’ fault, when really it was the poisonous spiders.”

Anyone still scared of bananas?
