This wall made from 7200 bananas is on display at NYC’s Deitch gallery until Feb 23. It’s part of artist Stefan Sagmeister’s exhibition “Things I Have Learned In My Life So Far.”
Can you guess that it’s kind of a slow afternoon here in Perth?
UPDATE: The same bloggers covering this NYC Art Exhibition are also covering the 2008 NYC Toy Fair. Now that looks like it’d be more up my alley!

Here ya’ go, Spot.
You mash up the beenanas and I’ll grind the peanuts…peanut butter and banana sandwich. Can’t beat it.

Peanut butter and banana? Are you nuts Tizona?! Everyone knows it’s peanut butter and Vegemite!

No Ash…the peaNUT is the “nut”. One can tell by the word “nut” tagged onto the pea.
And from what the vegemite sounds like…I shall have to be plenty drunk to down it. Mainly because in that condition, I can barf easily…LOL.

Vegemite’s delicious Tizona. Don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it!

I have a little sandwich toaster and I regularly make toasted peanut butter and banana sandwiches! But I don’t mash the bananas, I slice them thinly and set them on a good thick spread of PB. Mmmmm!
And I guess there’d be a few of them bananas left over for banana splits, as well.

I saw that picture and was immediately overwhelmed by an olfactory hallucination of banana smell. And normally I like bananas fine. I just imagine that wall turning mushy brown.
The toy fair link was cool, though!

Exactly as I make mine, Spot…Just do NOT fry them…Those helped kill Elvis…lol
