image for Canadian art expected to frighten US
It's a bird, it's a plane, no, it's a banana

(Dallas, Texas) César Sáez and other Canadian artists plan to launch a 300m-long inflateable banana into space.

Released from either Baja or Sonora to be carried by weather patterns into Texas, the fruit, the size of a 20 story building, will hover between 30 to 50 km over the Lone Star State using gyroscopes to keep it in position.

From the ground, the object will appear to be approximately 15-20 percent the size of the moon.

Local 911 dispatchers have been notified of the August 2008 launch of the huge yellow fruit-shaped balloon in anticipation of expected UFO reports.

Newspapers and television news programs will advertise the event, but the appearance of the flying object in combination with the low literacy rate of Texans is expected to strike fear in many cowboys.

"We hope no one panics," said a Dallas city councilman. "Texans already have a long history of firing guns indiscriminately into the air."

Police want to remind citizens not to attempt shooting the million dollar work of art.
