STRONGSVILLE, Ohio There is a banana at large in Strongsville.
Police say that someone dressed up as a banana and attacked the Wireless Center's mascot, a gorilla, last week.
"I noticed a kid in the bushes. Then he just emerged, dressed up as a banana, and sprinted as fast as he could at our gorilla," said Brandon Parham, the manager. "The kid just speared our gorilla."
Parham and another employee witnessed the attack.
"The kid was in mid-air, flying. He just looked like a Spartan from that movie '300,' except he was a banana," added Parham.
The Wireless Center uses the gorilla as an advertising tool on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays.
"After he got tackled, the gorilla just got back up and adjusted his head. He kept on waving his sign around," said Parham.
Police say the person dressed up as a banana split and headed south on Pearl Road.

Someone had fun writing that story... ;-)
Ya can’t make this sh*t up - ceptin’ if you got a bong and some good weed ...
I bet this was a staged publicity stunt to get the free media coverage.
"Tonight we dine in the produce department."
“The kid was in mid-air, flying. He just looked like a Spartan from that movie ‘300,’ except he was a banana,” added Parham.
THIS IS BANANA!!!!!
Meanwhile in Weaksville someone dressed as a Pink Flamingo attached a feather.
Well if this were Iowa or New Hampshire and the Gorilla and Banana were working for Gingrich and Romney... I might understand...
“There’s no such thing as bad publicity.”
It worked - well LOL.
I’m not sure how many folks will sprint over to get a cell phone based on this, though.
...he got into his car and peeled out.
Pictures or it didn’t happen.
This is in your neck of the woods. Any updates? ;)
