There’s always money in the banana stand.
Does the whole length light up, or just the tip?
Do ya have to peel it to change out bulbs?
Fruitpunk! Fruitpunk! Fruitpunk!
Is that a banana in your house or are you just happy to see me?

No doubt I’ll be disemvowelled or deleted, because my incisive wit, superior knowledge, and dissenting opinions are just too much for BoingBoing to tolerate! Behold me in my righteous martyrdom!

Also, I for one welcome our new banana overlords.
Was this a one-time possession of Faye Wray? That would explain a lot …..
Has anyone registered to get the price?
big yellow joint!
