Jane Jago’s Daily Drabble – Two Hundred and Sixty-Eight

It started out as a serious experiment, there was very little doubt of that. The funding came from a concerned group of multi-billionaires with an interest in hydroponics.

All was going well until somebody decided they could afford a couple of interns to do the boring work.

They appointed a girl with impressive ‘assets’, and a skinny geek with yellow dreadlocks.

The duo was left to manage the hot greenhouses.

Authority smiled, until the day the board met to be presented with the results of two decades of work and three billion euros.

The world’s first self-slicing banana.
