Banana Island

A banana-islander realizes that people are approaching his habitat. Panicked by the thought of strangers, he starts eating his island of bananas, while the boat comes closer and closer and the people aboard get fewer and fewer. When the islander has eaten himself down to the very last fruit, one remaining traveller arrives at the island, and both of them simultaneously grab for the last banana...
