Inspector Subramaniam – Banana Cop



This intrepid, if goofy-looking Indian policeman can turn even the humble Chiquita Costa Rica banana into a lethal weapon. Criminals of India, pray to God this cop never gets his hands on a star fruit!

#30YearsofGIFs – 2


Our second #30YearsofGIFs post introduces the ‘Dancing Banana’. This little yellow fellow was another Internet GIF pioneer. Appearing in the early 2000s, this fruit derived from a cult Flash video “Peanut Butter Jelly Time” made by Ryan Gancenia Etrata and Kevin Flynn (with the song “Peanut Butter Jelly Time” by The Buckwheat Boyz). Just like the Dancing Baby, the banana achieved celebrity status, appearing in a 2005 episode of Family Guy.

The Dancing Banana became so well-known that some forum owners set the word banana to show a dancing banana emoticon GIF.

Drawing and splitting bananas

Today at work I ‘swung’ by my friend/colleague Aveer’s desk to chat about life, ladies and stuff. He had a banana on his desk which he tried offering me half of. I declined. Then I drew on his banana. Thankfully said banana complied, unlike the fruit being chased by the baby chimp above.
