Goin' Bananas

Welcome to another edition of Wacky Wednesday courtesy of my old friend Denise. When we were kids we used to enjoy thangs like banana bread and banana splits on a hot summer day. Heck in 6th grade our talented friend Mindy made banana milkshakes for everybody and presented them to the class to that catchy little tune, "I'm Chiquita banana and I've come to say, Bananas have to ripen in a certain way, When they are fleck'd with brown and have a golden hue, Bananas taste the best and are best for you". Then as we matured we listened to those cool Bananarama 80's tunes and went bananas lookin' at HOT dudes wearin' banana hammocks. But times, they are a changin'!
 It's so yesterday folks to choose between ribbed, flavored, studded, ticklers or even lambskin to protect your banana from all sorts of heebie jeebies caused by those nasty fruit flies. Pfffffttttt, the revolutionary new Banana Bunker protects this delicate fruit from bruising and keeps it safe until you are ready for your snack attack. Plus, this handy dandy tool is expandable to fit all shapes and sizes. No need to worry about whether those magnums will slip off if a banana is not very well endowed. With 5 transparent colors to choose from you can still get a full frontal view of that delicious treat. Rumor has it this hot ticket item is on sale for a limited time at Banana Republic.

  1. I won't be impressed until they invent one that vibrates when you plug it in.

  8. Uh, when I saw that picture my mind went somewhere completely different. I'm sure I'm not the only one. I don't think I'll be able to look at the banana I was about to eat this morning quite the same...

  10. Hahahahaha! I let out another belt of LAUGHTER on this one.

    Rather phallic symbol-ish of the banana industry, don't ya thunk? I mean, where have they been all this time? Personally I'm leaning toward the lavender style.

    Have a great 4th of July, Deb!

  11. I was surprised when I recently learned that store bananas are sterile. They've been developed to not have seeds so if you plant one in the ground they won't grow.

  12. I think my eyes fell out... because that couldn't be right.
    Seriously?
    I want to work there.

  14. When I seen the banana proctector my mind slipped far past the depths of the gutter and straight to the sewer. It just looks like something used instead of the banana in the hammock, rather than to protect a banana. The orange one just looks sick and not in a good way. I'll just shut up now.

  15. Expandable?
    Do they grow when you rub them?
