    Someone couldn’t stop spelling ‘banananana’ and got tired of wasting signs.

  2. Novel says:

    There’s only part of a picture here. What is the rest?

  3. Rally says:

    So how much for the curved green vegetable?

  4. Seibee says:

    You saw no bananas here. No bananas. Move along.

  5. Jimmy says:

    I hear they are the evolutionist’s nightmare.

  6. Blackrock★Scooter says:

    This looks like a shop. I can tell from the fact that there are products being sold.

  7. Robbie says:

    Somebody’s planning to get out of shelf-stacking by taking a night-school course in creative writing.

  8. kvweber says:

    If it IS ‘shopped, then it’s done quite well as all of the compression is consistent throughout both the background image, foreground and the “shopped” area in question. In yellow and brown pixels it’s very easy to see the compression obviously caused by a JPG file format.

    Also, I agree with John Sergent’s idea- I do that all the time “banananana…crap”.

  9. Saria says:

    The curved brown fruit are cheaper.

  10. KevDog says:

    Vague? Unless they are referring to a slightly stooped, Asian homosexual, I think everyone gets the point.

    A second possibility, Microsoft trademarked “banana” for their new OS and are sending cease and desist orders to grocery stores.

  11. Demetri Martin says:

    And you all thought the bananana thing was just a joke!

  12. eriC says:

    Content ripoff much?

    There’s a fruit store on our street
    It’s run by a Greek.
    And he keeps good things to eat
    But you should hear him speak!
    When you ask him anything, he never answers “no”.
    He just “yes”es you to death, and as he takes your dough
    He tells you
    “Yes, we have no bananas
    We have-a no bananas today.
    We’ve string beans, and onions
    Cabbageses, and scallions,
    And all sorts of fruit and say
    We have an old fashioned to-mah-to
    A Long Island po-tah-to
    But yes, we have no bananas.
    We have no bananas today.”

    Business got so good for him that he wrote home today,
    “Send me Pete and Nick and Jim; I need help right away.”
    When he got them in the store, there was fun, you bet.
    Someone asked for “sparrow grass” and then the whole quartet
    All answered
    “Yes, we have no bananas
    We have-a no bananas today.
    Just try those coconuts
    Those walnuts and doughnuts
    There ain’t many nuts like they.
    We’ll sell you two kinds of red herring,
    Dark brown, and ball-bearing.
    But yes, we have no bananas
    We have no bananas today.”

    Yes, we are very sorry to inform you
    That we are entirely out of the fruit in question
    The afore-mentioned vegetable
    Bearing the cognomen “Banana”.
    We might induce you to accept a substitute less desirable,
    But that is not the policy at this internationally famous green
    grocery.
    I should say not. No no no no no no no.
    But may we suggest that you sample our five o’clock tea
    Which we feel certain will tempt your pallet?
    However we regret that after a diligent search
    Of the premises
    By our entire staff
    We can positively affirm without fear of contradiction
    That our raspberries are delicious; really delicious
    Very delicious
    But we have no bananas today.

    Yes, we gotta no banana
    No banana
    We gotta no banana today.
    I sella you no banana.
    Hey, Marianna, you gotta no banana?
    Why this man, he no believe-a what I say.
    Now whatta you want mister?
    You wanna buy twelve for a quarter?
    No? well, just a oneofadozen?
    I’m-a gonna calla my daughter.
    Hey, Marianna
    You gotta piana
    Yes, banana, no
    No, yes, no bananas today
    We gotta no bananas.
    Yes, we gotta no bananas today.

  15. the cat says:

  16. angiesparkles says:

  17. Spewella says:

  18. ceemoy says:

    I’m sure those are apples. Sure of it.

  19. foxmaiden says:

    Public school children… 18 years into the future.

  20. oh_dear says:

    Always bring a banana to a party.

    every public schooler know how to spell bananas, the learned from Gwen Stefani- This s*** is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S

  21. BluesDog says:

    Ring ring ring ring ring ring ring… BANANAPHONE! Maybe they just didn’t want customers picking up the fruit and singing Raffi songs.

    I can just hear that pile of fruit scream “I am a banana!” (Don Hertzfeldt’s “Rejected” anyone?)

  22. FRUITATIA says:

    whatever… around here they sell for 69 cents !

  23. azazel says:

    Yes! We Have No Bananas

  24. Sophyra says:

    Who knows, maybe the word ‘bananas’ offends some people so they’re just being politically correct lol (made me smile)

  25. Sheepdog says:

    Now now, dont be racist, not all curved yellow fruit has to be a banana. It can be whatever it wants 🙂 Kumbya and all that.

  26. Kaida says:

    Could be plantains…. can’t get them for false advertising then…..

  27. Tarc says:

    As for it being photoshopped…: Someone commented the compression is visible. I say, it doesn’t take much time and effort to modify a pic, and save it again so jpeg compression screws up the whole pic (with the altering in it too)

  28. CopyCat says:

    …Yes, those are definitely papayas. Now, I must say tha-IMA FIRIN MAI LAZOR BLAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  29. Chrizzy says:

    I will NEVER call them bananas again

  30. RoseRodent says:

    I think this is potentially from a time when there was discussion that the European Union was considering a maximum curve on bananas and that they were going to have to be straight otherwise could not legally be described as bananas. Where that bizarre rumour ever came from is anyone’s guess, but if it was snapped in the EU I’d guess it dates from that period where people were trying to make a point of protest against these sorts of silly rules.

  31. astro says:

    Round red fruit is over there…

  32. Boingie says:

    Because Bananas are copyright. (Just kidding)

  33. Delilah says:

    curved is the new straight!

  34. Jessica says:

    Just found this. Is absolutely not shopped. It was in a Store 24 near my house a few years ago. I took a picture of it too!

  35. OneWithRussia says:

    @Delilah: Then I’m glad to be straight AND have curves. xD

  36. Mimmi says:

    Acctually, the banana isn’t a fruit, it’s a berry. And the banana tree is a herb.. 😉

  37. Vesane Vates says:

    The guy at our local fruit store always spruiks “Yellow Bent Bananas”

  38. Sam says:

    “Elongated Curvy Lemons for Sale….. I think”

  39. themeister226 says:
