Talking Too funny (or sad) not to share

We have talked about it here on the forum many times that nurseries sell mis-labeled plants.
Today I found a similar example (funny or sad, you decide) on Craigslist. Someone selling a banana plant which clearly is not. Bird of Paradise, maybe. My friend actually contacted the seller and asked if it had fruited yet. The sellers response was that this is the bushy kind of banana plant that does not produce any fruits.

OMG, why is it that in all these years on bananas.org I have not seen any posts about this bushy banana variety that does not produce any fruits?
And yes, it must be so rare that the price of $50 is justified (only if you dig it out yourself, otherwise who knows how expensive it might get).

Yes that's like my apartment complex did a whole landscape overhaul and said they were going to put banana plants all around the pool areas. I was SO excited! Of course what they put were ugly Giant White Bird of Paradise!

Even palms aren't what they used to be

Yes, I noticed they did after I had pointed it out in a response to their add. At least they were willing to correct the mistake and I appreciate that with a good Craig's List seller.
