We're forgetting the fundamentals of cartoon physics.
It really has nothing to do with the physical weight of the lizard or the bananas. It works on the same principal that keeps a character suspended in space until the second it observes that he's run out of ground, and even then his hat will remain spinning, suspended in the air long after said character has plunged off a cliff into the gorge below.
This principal suggests that "funny" outweighs "awesome" by approximately 3.14 (or pi, preferably banana cream if you've got it).
The equation looks like this:
Weight of Arthur(x), Weight of banana(Y), weight of funny(z), surface tension of the water(a)
(x + 2y) = x2y
x2y x z = 3.14xy
3.14xy / a = Awesome
Same equation but substituting Weight of bananas for weight of lizard(b)
(x + b) = xb
xb x z = 3.14xb
3.14xb / a = Glub
So if one subject outweighs another in funny, (in this case the lizard is clearly more funny than 2 bananas) the principal applies and the result is "Glub".
