YOU KNOW HOW JACK BAUER IS ALWAYS TALKING TO CHLOE ON HIS CELLPHONE ABOUT SCHEMATICS WHILE HE'S ENTERING A TERRORIST LAIR OR DISMANTLING A TICKING NUCLEAR BOMB?

Well, wouldn't it be excellent if he was talking to her on this?

Earworm alert*

Ring, ring, ring, ring, ring, ring, ring, ring, banana phone
Ding dong ding dong ding dong ding donanaphone

That site is fabulous! How am I supposed to concentrate on boring work, with that to page through?

*snork* @ noob!

Isn't a ... genuine realistic faux plastic banana ... an oxymoron? Really now, "genuine realistic" and "faux plastic"?

And how's it going to be "hands free"? Strapped to your head with a rubber band!?

"No officer. I wasn't talking on my mobile. I was about to take a bite of this bananannnna."

*munch*

YUCK!

*spark! crackle! crackle!*

'Scuse me, officer ... I couldn't hear your siren ... I've got a banana in my ear ...

banana fana phone fana

The proto-type pineapple phone was to itchy.

pssst..DAve...it's entering....just sayin'

Thanks, Siouxie. I will have judi fired.

Get Smart: Say boss! Can I trade in my shoe phone for this banana phone?

Agent 99: That's a real banana. You just put the banana phone in the blender.

Get Smart: Oh! And I suppose that wasn't the "hold" button either!?

Agent 99: No ... that was "puree".

Get Smart: No wonder this is chunkie.

oh and *SNORK* @ the banana phone!

Ladies...think of the other uses.


what?

The banana needs that traction device to cure the acute curvature.

O/T Thanks for all the good wishes for the new little Hoople O/T

Does it vibrate?

*just realized his first name was Max*

*substitute "Max" for every instance of "Get"*

*reconsiders daytime job*

No need to do that, Dave. Just have her publicly flogged. We do love her.

Mot, Congratulations on your grand baby girl!!!!!

i noticed that they take custom orders - i wonder if i could get a hamster phone?

mud, so long as it doesn't scurry off!

kibby, I blame you for my inability to be productive today. So, I'll just ramble about Agent 86, Maxwell Smart. His sister was Get Smart, short for Bridget [OK, not really].

Well, Siouxie, that would be interesting version of phone $ex, but how do you listen and play at the same time?

Lol, OtU. I don't think I've heard that one for half a century.

They should give it to Twatney to test driive it. She'd be thrilled to know that bananas come in hands.

Mud which end would you talk into? How would you talk with hair on your tongue? What kind of ring would it have? Would it squeak, squeal, or vibrate (Richard Geer edition)

Scene from Get Smart:

Max: Say Boss! Can I trade in my shoe phone for this banana phone?

Agent 86: Max, that's a real banana. You just put the banana phone in the blender.

Max: Oh! And I suppose that wasn't the "hold" button either!?

Agent 86: No ... that was "puree".

Max: No wonder this is chunkie.


*kibby blame the coffee and Al Gore*

Baron, they'd have to invent a dual head (HA!)piece-banana-thingie.

Kibster - sorry, wrong (agent) number.

Is your banana ringing or are you just happy to see me?

Personally, I love the look of this handset..

Lol, kibby. But if you refer to 86 by his first name, you have to do the same for 99.

It's 86 and 99, right??

TAKE THREE!

i'm gonna be singing raffi all day, damnit!

*gives up*

*goes to google*

from another world: ass end. i don't lick my phone now. squeak.

Taken from the Get Smart FAQ web site:

Max: That's all right Susan.
99: It's 99, Max. Susan isn't my real name.

Take 33 1/3rd:

Max: Say Boss! Can I trade in my shoe phone for this banana phone?

99: Max, that's a real banana. You just put the banana phone in the blender.

Max: Oh! Don't tell me that wasn't the "hold" button either!?

99: No ... that was "puree".

Max: I told you not to tell me.

Italics to indicate changed script .... but you knew that.


YAY, kibby!

kibby - as I recall in that era, it was mostly 45rpm. Take 45. Just sayin'

*mumbleumbleumble, everybody's a critic, mumbleumble*

The creator obviously was inspired by this:

Banana in the ear

*mumblemumblemumble, no I'm not, mumblemumble*

"45's" were only singles "33's" were albums. "78's" however were ancient!

*renews pass for geezer bus*

My daughter has a poster-size version of THIS promo for the zoo in Munich hanging in her room.

OK, Stevie ... that time frame (50 years) sounds about right ...

HOWever, your banana fana phone fana is a bit more up-to-century ...

How many other fruits are we gonna see turned into (genuine faux) appliances?

Merely ... wonderin' when to start investments in fruit factorys ...

Munich's "Tier Park" is pretty good! I'm not suprised at their ingenutiy in coming up with that poster.

Sorry Blue, the only photos I have of the place are in my mind.

I have got to get my husband one of these! He'll find it very a-peeling!

My first thought when I saw this was that it really ought to be equipped with Bluetooth instead of the st00pid dangly wire. That would rock.

I bet if Jack actually had this, it would double as a shiv and triple as a boomerang. I do not want to know where he would stick this when questioning someone. *urk*

I get cr@p service where I live, this might put some fun in my connectile dysfunction.

Does Jack know the banana in the tail pipe trick?

Banana in the tailpipe?, New torture technique?

I got a snork. Yay!

Sorry, cg. But if it's (not its) any consolation, I've got the song stuck in my head, too.

Gad' ... it's used as a gag (sight gag, not as a "muffler" that is not attached to the tailpipe) in Beverly Hills Cop ... a "trick" that most/all males of a certain generation have known about since ... whenever ...

Actually, however, when I wuz growin' up, it wuz a potato (not potatoe) in the tailpipe ... we were too poor, and lived too far north, to have bananas ... merely sayin' ...

bananas, potatos, whatever. No produce in my tailpipe.

*looks up spelling for rutabaga*

*guesses that a rutabaga in the GI tract might also contribute to "clogging"*

Yep
