Virender Sehwag’s Hilarious Banana Pun
Bananas without “B” is Pineapple.

In a recent tweet, the famous cricketer posted the following on the micro-blogging website, which just happens to be a perfect platform for such short-formed hilarious content. He said, “Bananas without ‘B’ is pineapple.”
For those reading who did not understand this multi-lingual pun, ‘ananas’ which is what is left if you remove the letter ‘b’ from bananas, means pineapple in Hindi and Marathi. Hence the joke, if you remove the ‘b’ from bananas, what you are left with is pineapple, an entirely different fruit!

This user says that the tweet is so brilliant it could be his academic thesis. We agree, would definitely call him a doctor of puns if we were on the thesis evaluation panel.

Another user tweeted a sardonic GIF of the prime minister of the country saying that India is filled with bright people. The implication is that Sehwag’s tweet is an exhibit of that brightness.

This user took the word game a step further by saying that the same pineapple, ‘ananas,’ without an ‘a,’ is their, presumably maternal, grandfather. If you know, you know.
That same pineapple with “A” is both of my grandfathers.
