I overheard earlier today that a customer inquired about purchasing $6000 worth of Banana Costumes because he’s organizing a big company-wide promotion. This got me wondering what type of company it was and why a banana. Are they going bananas over new low prices? Are they a smoothie shop advertising the fresh fruit in their drinks or maybe an ice cream parlor having a run on banana splits?  And who has to draw the small straw to wear the costume. I can just picture somebody, feeling pretty silly, but nevertheless happy to be employed, standing on a street corner in a banana costume holding up a sign. What the sign says is just as intriguing as the choice of costume.

I have seen gorillas selling furniture, cows selling chicken and chickens selling mattresses but I have yet to see a banana with something to sell.

To do the math, a deluxe banana costume is currently on sale for $29.97. That means that somewhere in the United States there are soon to be 200 banana people out on the streets. So, if you happen to see a guy in a banana suit, let me know.
