Mellow Yellow Jersey

In "honor" of the Tour de France, and associated events, we offer for your viewing (and listening) pleasure "Mellow Yellow," by Donovan:

At the time the song was recorded in 1966, it was reputed that if you scraped out the inside of banana skins, most notably the ribs, dried them in the sun, and smoked them, the result would be akin to smoking marijuana (but legal!). Chalk that up as a failed experiment (Wikipedia confirms my first-hand observations).

Perhaps if we had tested its performance-enhancing capabilities... ;-)
