I can‘t remember who posted the #AllTheBooks Banana Pants T-shirt , but I got my tank! I love it! From Tee Fury I believe, and they‘ve got it in lots of t and tank styles and colors. Yay #BananaPants 🍌👖!

(Pretty sure this was created by the All The Books podcast folks)

Melissa_J I‘m pretty sure it was @britt_brooke who posted about the shirt. She has lots of cool tops. 5mo

Linear Mental image of what a banana would have looked like should they have their own banana, is the following book cover. 2y

Day 14 of the #RiotGrams challenge: cookbook/food-themed book! Here is THE BOOK in all its horrible glory, home of the infamous Banana Candle recipe.

I love that the author is listed as the Banana Control Board. You can't control bananas! They are young! Heartache to heartache they stand! Er, wait, no, that's something else.

Anyway, here's my thots on the banana candle: http://bookriot.com/2011/11/30/when-used-books-attack-banana-edition/ 🍌

In the interest of honesty, I had to Google this one. It's amazing how many goofy books there are out there. What on earth did we do before Google?! (Just so you know I searched through all my books. Love them all- even the boring ones!)

EvieBee Too funny! Be Bold with Bananas sounds like a great title for a graduation speech. 2y
Zelma Be Bold With Bananas is a classic bad book! In particular, the candle salad is epic. 2y

It's not the famous Banana Candle, but it's close. And in its own way, a little worse. Seriously, SLICES of bananas would have been just fine @Liberty

8little_paws Ooohhh I just can't with this lol 3y
Hooked_on_books I'm finding this a little pervy 😂 3y
Lola @8little_paws @Hooked__on__books I mean, who in the kitchen thought this was good idea?! 😂😂The rest of the meal was fine. Bold even. But in a normal foodie way 😛 3y
