Declaration of Independence of the Banana Republic


We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all bananas are created equal, that they are endowed by Nature with certain unalienable rights, that among these are homo rights, freedumb and the pursuit of dumbocracy. That to secure these rights, we shall institute a government of bananas, for bananas and by bananas.


Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! Amen!

They look like they eat a healthy amount of beef every week, not just bananas. I think I want to emigrate to the Banana Republic.

I thought you're a citizen of the French version of the Banana Republic: liberté, égalité, fraternité.
