It may sound like the beginning of a joke, but it’s a true story.
Last week, the manager of a cell phone store in Ohio called 911 to report a gorilla had been attacked by a banana.
The Wireless Center in Strongsville, near Cleveland, advertises at curbside with a man in a gorilla suit. Manager Brandon Parham says he was watching last week as a kid dressed as a banana emerged from some bushes and took a flying leap at the store mascot. Parham says the attacker looked like a Spartan from the movie “300” — except he was a banana. The gorilla was knocked down but got back up, adjusted his head and went back to work. WJW-TV reports the banana split — running down the street with other teens. Police think it was a prank. They weren’t able to find the offending fruit.
