You know you want me, baby
You know you want me, baby
Wal-Mart (NYSE: WMT - News), which registered $405 billion in sales last year and is the largest retailer in the world, sold more bananas than any other single item.

This really surprised me. They sold more bananas than any other single item? They sold more bananas than LEGO's, Sham-Wow's, or plastic lawn flamingos?

They must have inflated their numbers a bit on that "Free banana with every purchase of $250 or more!" promotion.

Of course, they do make it easy to get your hands on a fine banana (pause here a moment to let P-Ziddy's hysterics die down a little). At Reasor's, the bananas are hidden. Best Buy won't sell them unless you also purchase an extended warranty. The bananas at Ikea aren't even pre-assembled.

"The Banana Superstore"... that has a nice ring to it. "Banana Boutique"... sounds expensive. "Fatuma's Bana Reserve"... sounds just ethnic enough to be trendy. Might be a good name for a rock n' roll band, too.

Man. Now I'm hungry.

This supports my theory that most Wal-Mart shoppers are simians masquerading as humans.
