Seriously though, a linguist thought it was a combination of 'cherry' and 'banana' which is pretty cool.

3. When he wanted a banana and he got a nut instead, he would SPEAK UP ABOUT IT.

Occasionally, he would go as far as throw the nut AT the researcher and then request a banana again.

5. When a researcher acted upset, Alex would apologize to calm them down.

6. When he was bored, he would let you know.
