Overalls and Bananas! Best combination ever! These guys are so fricking hilarious. This just made my hectic day a lot better, somehow. Thanks Burra.

Paul. I can never see that picture and not think of your comment regarding the placement of the banana on the oldest guy's overalls. I believe you described the placement as "for the ladies".

That's me in the middle. The oldest person is Clyde. Clyde made the overalls and he strategically placed the one banana "for the ladies".

And while I'm sure all women everywhere will say that that is not going to work, I also suspect that most women everywhere will have a bit of a laugh and it will totally work at least a little.

Further, I hope women will encourage this sort of humor and creativity in guys rather than encouraging "the bad boys".

So paul, have you literally just never worn clothes if they weren't overalls?!

I'm not wearing pants!


When I worked in the corporate whore world I would wear overalls during the week - except on my last gig (and I started wearing overalls every day - i was ready to leave geeky stuff).


Here's me at digital globe:

Looks like Clyde's banana has competition from an encroaching banana - kind of a "clashing of swords" situation going on there. Or maybe that banana was vanquished so that the superior banana could reign as the "lady's" banana?

And now I have an image of competing bananas doing battle in my head...!! (no, I did not draw that!)
