Purple or banana-like.

Two orchids. Which one do you prefer?

Orchid that reminds me of a banana

Purple orchid

That says so much about you.

Me, I have a strong preference. I suppose it's easy to tell.

Magenta.

My guess: you like bananas. Blame it on Freud. (Perhaps that, in itself, says much about me.)

Forgive the anthropomorphic comment here, but: Don't those two plants look like they're laughing and sticking their tongues out at you?

My fear is that they'll grow up to be this.

Hey Tibore, here’s how to make a flower-puppet. Pinch your snapdragon blossom like this and it looks like a dragon opening its jaws. Talk in a funny voice. Kids love it.

I like the purple one. It's stronger, and the shape looks like the head of a snake that's striking while sticking its tongue out.

That's more of a herpetomorphic comment than an antropomorphic one, I guess.

The banana orchid makes for a better photograph.

I like the banana one better because it's original and has a comic edge. The purple one is conventional and takes itself too seriously.

I think the banana one looks more like a giraffe. Like the kind of giraffe mask you'd see in a farce play of the Lion King. I like it.
