Is That a Banana in Your Pocket or Are You Just Playing a Practical Joke?

Ohhh, college. If you don't think this video is funny, it can only be because you're not watching it.



It's from three years ago, in our old college newsroom. Because I had not yet ascended to the ranks of the cool (read: editors), I don't appear in this video (it's a budget meeting - woo!), though one of my best friends, another lowly reporter, does - she's the girl at the end in the striped sweater putting the banana on his shoulder. She brings on the best part of Ben's banana-crazed reaction, anyway.

And yes, he means it - the kid hates bananas. Lots.

Sure, the song is annoying & the videography is blurry, but darn, it's fun - so fun, in fact, that back in the day, a local alt paper wrote about it. I've been a wee bit cranky for the past few days, & I got a little emo last night reading through a bunch of my old Xanga & Myspace posts (don't judge, everyone's gotta start someplace) - but amongst my old posts, I found this amazing piece of Daily Kent Stater history, & I couldn't resist reviving it to share with anyone who's interested in a little bizarro fruit comedy. It made my day & induced the elusive actual LOL.

Also, this just in: Would you judge me if I admitted that I miss college? A lot?
