THIS BUNCH IS FOR REAL AND YOU CAN BE A PART OF IT!

T.B. Ken conducting the Banana Club Games

The BANANA CLUB was conceived and founded by Ken Bannister, T.B. (Top Banana) back in 1972.  It all started at a professional photographic trade show in Atlanta, GA. Ken simply started handing out Chiquita Banana stickers (a 10,000 count roll given to him by his secretary / her husband unloaded bananas at the Long Beach, CA docks) to photographers to affix to their I.D. badges at professional photographic trade shows.  It caught on and served as an attention getter all over the U.S. and Europe.  People just assumed it was a club, so be it...The membership card provided anyone a way to get discounts on merchandise, upgrades in hotels, and special favors if they simply asked with a smile on their face and made reference to the Banana Club (by simply showing the membership card!)   Anyone with a banana sticker or card would get special treatment by manufactures and trade show participants at the photo trade shows or anywhere they showed it! 

The Incentive to send tasteful banana related items to the International Banana Club or to Ken the "Banana Man - Top Banana" is how B.M's (Banana Merits) are earned and the Degrees in Bananistry are earned.  You can get the M.B. "Master of Bananistry and the PHB "Doctorite of Bananistry"!  It takes 100 B.M.'s for the M.B. and 500 for the PHB.  Merits are earned by mail or given verbally by the T.B. (Top Banana). Nothing lude, crude or lascivious is accepted or demerits may be given if items are not tasteful.  The result was the International Banana Club Museum! "Woddis"  is our password and means whatever you want it to mean .. depends on the tone of your voice and the expression on your face!  :)  People do business with people who are pleasant and display good positive attitudes!

The Banana Club membership card works!  The backside explains to anyone you show it to why they should give you a discount on anything!  It sometimes gets you upgrades at hotels for no charge and could even get you out of a traffic ticket!  No kidding!  It's the card!  Go to the services page for information to become a member of this positive, fun bunch and get your very own title of your choice if you just ask!  There are NO RULES,NO REGULATIONS, and no junk mail from us!

Occasional Banana Club picnics and games have been and are conducted.  Promotions at business sites and major malls have employed the T.B. and Banana Club to attract customers, build sales and entertain the public.
