Chiquita Banana was the spokesperson for Dole Bananas from the 1960's through the 1980's. Her singing and dancing helped propel the company to millions in sales and made her a household name.
The retired fruit, however, proved yesterday that "he" really is a retired fruit. "So I messed up and went to the wrong bathroom," said Chiquita, a.k.a. Bruce Potter. "Big deal. I was really trying to score with the Bic Banana back then and thought that cross dressing was my only chance."
"Everyone is coming out of the closet these days anyway. When you find out that Doogie Howser never really wanted in the girl next door's panties, he wanted to wear her panties, and you hear that a Backstreet Boy is really a backdoor boy, and learn that Clay Aiken is singing those love songs to pictures of Matthew McConaughey, and see that Rosie O'Donnell really doesn't want Tom Cruise, just his women, it kind of changes things and your place in the world."
The banana is not worried that this revelation will change his ap-peal to many eaters the world over.
