    I'm sure if he could get Snoop Lion to sign the Banana he could make his life savings back through eBay.

    I could have sworn I saw this before, but I guess it was on another site.

    Anyway, 4chan was trying to buy the banana off him for $2600, kind o the same thing they did with those beyblade kids that destroyed a bathtub, and had to sell them on ebay. Not sure where the thread for that is though, and I'm not going to search 4chan for it.

    I didn't think a banana plush could look stoned, but...that photo proves me wrong.

    ERROR!
    While $2600 is a lot of money (on a giant rasta banana no less), writing "life savings" make it sound a lot more dramatic, it's not like he's homeless or anything now.

    Wait USN? It's not even a slow news week...

    I'd much rather have a giant banana than a Kinect.

    Not to sound like a snob or anything, but did anyone else laugh at the "he went home to get the rest of his savings" part?

    I find the banana prize quite ironic in this situation. He truly went bananas.

    Someone must have seen this man coming, I mean you cant be too bright if you are willing to loose $2600 on a $100 item xD

    But! I may have worked it out... The person at the Carnival running the game may have been a chick... which could explain it as he was thinking with his "Banana"
