Banana at Large After Attacking Gorilla in Strongsville
Fox8 ^ | July 7, 2011 | Melissa Reid

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.

SNIP

Police were unable to locate the banana.

The cops had their eyes peeled but he slipped away.

Apparently he covered himself in chocolate and whipped cream and the cops didn’t notice him.

I have nothing to say until I know the statute of limitations has expired.

After doing that, did the banana split because he was too yellow to hang around? :-)))))))))

““Police were unable to locate the banana.””

After the banana peeled outta there, he gave them the slip.
