BIGGEST BANANA EVER
NEWS MAN SHOWS OFF FRANKENFRUIT
MILWAUKEE A local television news anchor declared his piece of fruit, "the biggest banana ever," this morning.
Today's TMJ4 anchor Vince Vitrano eats a banana daily. "And an apple," the morning news man declared in an interview.
"I mean I guess it's not that big of a deal, but seriously is this the biggest banana you've ever seen?"
Others in the news room seemed to agree, although they did not share Vitrano's enthusiasm.
"I mean sure, it's a big banana," admitted Live at Daybreak Producer Diane Znamierowski. "It's the biggest banana I've seen, yes. So what?"
Meteorologist Craig Koplien offered, "Vitrano's hyperbole is laughable."
Told of Koplien's comments, Vitrano fired back, "I am not hyper. I'm energetic. Plus, what's that got to do with the size of this banana?"
Vitrano considered attempting to preserve the large hunk of fruit so that it could be examined by scientists and/or the Guinness Book of World Records staff.
Instead, he ate it, indicating that it indeed made him more full than most common sized bananas.
