"There's always money in the Banana Stand."*

If you happen to be at Provo's Farmers Market on a summer Saturday, and you also happen to have a hankering for a chocolate-dipped frozen banana, well then you are in luck, my friend! "The Banana Stand" is open for business this summer, and it will make all of your chocolate banana dreams come true! If you do stop by, this is what you might see:

The awesome homemade sign.

The products, brought to you in three mouthwatering varieties.**

The help, wearing awesome banana aprons.**

A little girl with glasses, earning the bananas her mom eats.

Some of us just sit around and eat sandwiches because we're grumpy.

Others dance in the rain wearing awesome banana skirts.

Some of us are smokin' hot and model Banana Stand tie-dyed t-shirts.

While others found a "Secret Sauce" booth with steak Shish Kabobs...

...and can't stop eating them.

Seriously, help me, because I'm addicted.

That is one satisfied customer (of the bananas, not the meat, cuz I'm not sharing, are you crazy?!)

So stop on by and if you say, "Hailey sent me here to get my banana on," I'm pretty sure you could get a dollar off! I don't know if that's true, but wouldn't it be funny if you went there and said that? I would totally give you a discount...

*If you know what unparalleled television comedy this line comes from, it would be worth a frozen banana, on me!

It's 10:30 p.m. and I could seriously go for one of those right now - steak, banana - doesn't matter!

I don't know much TV trivia, but I know that there was a banana stand on Arrested Development! :) Those bananas look tasty! And, your kids are looking so cute and grown up. We miss you guys!

I've made a huge mistake.

Free bananas for Erin, Azucar, and j! Although, Erin, yours might thaw out on the way to LV.

The thing about AD is, I can never stick with one person I love the most. "It's definitely GOB, no, actually Buster, no, now George Michael, oh wait, definitely Tobias!" I'm the same way with SYTYCD.

Gotta be Arrested Development!

Katie D. said...

Love Arrested Development. I'm the same as you....can't decide which character I love the most. Gob, Buster, and Tobias are definitely my front-runners though (and not necessarily in that order).

dapper kid said...

YUM the chocolate covered bananas sound soooo good!! Haha, and loving the aprons :)

The Bakers said...

I wish someone would have told me about Arrested Development sooner. Now I have to Hulu.

Molly said...

I might have to take you up on that free banana! i can't believe they canceled that one. You know it is great when you really cannot decide which character is funniest... Tobias... no Buster... no Gob (however he spelled it...it is late)...

i want more.

Molly said...

ok... now i feel stupid after i just read your comment:)

i guess that means we should be friends!
