"Is that a banana in your pocket...?"

"...or are you just happy to see me?"

Is this the ONLY thing people can think to say when they see you putting a banana in your pocket?

The other night, I was about to leave work and dropped a banana in my jersey pocket for the ride home. (Yes, my jersey pocket, meaning the banana was ON MY BACK.)

So, as I leave my desk, a co-worker calls out, "Hey, is that a banana in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?"
I turned and said, "I am happy to see you, but if this is the result, (pointing to my back) something has gone seriously, seriously wrong."

When you hear that stupid line, why don't you just split (like a banana).

Two wheels good. Four wheels bad.
