There's always money in the banana stand.


#3

It wasn't me! I only use a steam-powered blunderbuss, these new-fangled guns scare me.


#4

I found it shocking that the cops actually hassled him over his gun in Texas. Apparently they only cited him for solicitation though.


#5

Just look at this gun-toting banana suit guy. Just look at him.


#6

No one makes fun of this banana - NO ONE !


#7

#8

So they finally caught him, eh? He's been giving them the slip for years.


#9

Yes, standing by the road with a loaded assault rifle will get you ticketed for wearing a banana suit. U!S!A! U!S!A!


#10

Just look at this banana clip! Just look at it!


#11

It wasn't loaded.


#12

The banana or the gun?


#13

Of course the banana was loaded - with Potassium!


#14

Dang, I was hoping for brandy.


#15

I didn't see anything in any of the linked articles about the gun's status re: being loaded or not.

I really liked this quote from one of the articles though:

Police have cited an 18-year-old Beaumont man who riled and worried passing motorists by standing at an intersection dressed as a banana with an assault rifle slung across his back.

Riled and worried!


#16

Move along, people. Nothing to look at here.


#17

I like this one better.


#18

I can't say I'm particularly shocked it was Texas - in terms of dysfunction, it's close to Florida.


#19

Maybe @Mister44 has some... firsthand knowledge? stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye

EDIT: It's probably true that the gun was unloaded, though. Openly carrying a loaded gun is illegal in Texas. He probably would have gotten a citation for that, too, had it been loaded.
