Let's face it. There's not much you can do with a banana, or a can of soup, or Marilyn Monroe, or Mickey Mouse. Isn't that right Mr Warhol? As a teaser for an upcoming "Noah's Ark: Monkeys" post, here is a small collection of "bananas" I consider important, different or well skinned... err... peeled... err... done.
First up, is what has to be, in my opinion, the album cover world's sexiest banana, courtesy of The Dandy Warhols, The cover of their fourth album is a tribute to The Velvet Underground's debut album (see last image) and an homage to Andy Warhol. But oh my, that is one nice looking zipper, skintight jumpsuit, unblemished flesh, and great curves... the Liz Hurley of bananas!

Cris Rea flaunts no banana, just a banana skin, and the members of James chow into some (an average Cavendish banana is around 90 to 100 calories). And a Velvet Underground compilation album which, like Welcome to the Monkey House, pays tribute to their debut album.
