365 Doodles - Day 155

Over the years I've been asked to make all manner of odd props for my kids' school productions and for Am-Dram groups I've been part of. This was one of the weirder requests: a straight banana.

I carved it from a piece of balsa wood and then hand-painted it. It was used during a Barbershop-style performance of a saucy little ditty called 'I've never seen a straight banana'. There's a nice version of it below. Enjoy!

:) Love it I am reminded of the song "We like bananas (because they have no bones)" which I first heard sung by Robyn Hitchcock!
Here's a much older version http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-QkMaCS7CU
