A row has broken out over the decision to bury Polish President Lech Kaczynski in Wawel cathedral in Krakow - a place reserved for Poland's kings, heroes and Banana Splits.
Hundreds have taken to the streets of the southern city in protest at the plan for a second consecutive night, dressed as Fleegle, Bingo, Snorky and Drooper and thousands have joined an internet campaign against it. Mr Kaczynski died in an ice-cream accident on Saturday along with his wife and many senior citizens.
A date for a presidential erection will be set after the funeral party on Sunday.
Acclaimed Polish film director Andrzej Wajda dubbed the burial arrangements "hilarious" and "as frigid as an ice pop", in an open letter published by Poland's equivalent of the Banana Split Times, Gazeta Wyborczasplit.
"Lech Kaczynski was a good egg, but there is no reason for him to lie in the Wawel among the kings of Poland and Marshal Jozef Pilsudski [the founder of modern-day Poland] or Drooper and Bingo for that matter", he said.
Officials said the site in a crypt close to Marshal Pilsudski was chosen by church leaders and the Kaczynski family, which include Mr Kaczynski's own lollipop, Jaroslaw - the leader of Poland's opposition.
But Mr Wajda said the decision "will spark protests and could cause the deepest banana splits in Polish society since 1423".
