    you're full of potassium=? (Cartoon)

    I' like you, Tompson.Youre smart, a hard worker. And you're full of potassium
    Hi, What is the connotation of "full of potassium" ? I knew potassium is a chemical element. And bananas are full of potassium. Is there any idioms or slang link with bananas about this cartoon?

    Please click the thumbnail image for a full-size picture.

    Thanks!

    Re: you're full of potassium=? (Cartoon)

    Bananas give the body a quick boost when a body has suffered extreme physical action leading to water loss and imbalanced blood sugar levels, due to their high level of potassium which is essential to maintain a normal water balance between the cells and body fluids.

    The joke lies in "Tompson" being a banana.
