Thais go lottery bananas over unusual fruit tree!

For years it has been known that Thai people are crazy about playing the lottery. 

 

Now it seems that they are officially bananas!

 

Daily News reporters went to see two unusual banana trees growing in front of a shop in Klong 4 Pathum Thani.

 

The trees did not have blossom and on one plant two bananas were pointing skywards - on another there was a whole bunch pointing to the heavens.

There was a steady stream of the faithful lighting incense, praying and rubbing powder on the trees to get lottery numbers. 

 

One group thought 542 was the path to riches. 

 

Surachai, 53, said the trees had been growing for a few months. He'd never seen the like of it before.

An unnamed agricultural expert suggested that there was probably something wrong with them - the trees not the locals. 

 

Thaivisa notes that lottery numbers are often sought when strange or untoward items are discovered or events occur in the kingdom. 

 

Trees and malformed animals are a favorite source of riches as are numbers of houses and vehicles involved in events where people experience "miracle" escapes from danger.

I don't think there crazy as such more like pure desperation and willing to use anything as a reason to play .

Maybe planted near a septic tank.

More likely a buried toxic chemical
