I saw this sign in a shop window last night. It may be slightly tongue in cheek, but then again:
Such signs used to warn would-be thieves that there was no cash, or no cigarettes, on the premises. But apparently there’s been a banana-related crime wave (now there’s a phrase I didn’t think I’d ever write) since Cyclone Larry wiped out most of the Australian banana crop. Bananas, it appears, have become the luxury good of choice among discerning burglars and I’ve even seen the phrase “banana rustling” being used in newspaper articles.
Isn’t life odd?
