    How to Distinguish a Banana from a Yam

    Sweet potatoes are members of the species
    Ipomoea batatas.

    That is not, my good friends,
    Ipomoea bananas.

    A sweet potato is orange in and out,
    except when it is brown outside.
    A banana is yellow out and white in.

    A sweet potato, though,
    is not a true yam, i.e.,

    a member of the family
    Dioscoreaceae.

    There is absolutely no truth
    to the rumor that the banana

    belongs to the yam Diaspora.

    Impressive, a man who knows his batatas from his bananas.

    Well done again Chris
