There’s always something to howl about

The Look of Success

This was sent to me today. When I see something this important I want to share it with the world.

Anna Bananna Realty

You can see the original article on AZCentral. This is a Realtor named Anna Kruchten who has a company named Anna Banana Realty.

This has already given me an idea that is going to make a huge difference in how people see me.

      Russell,

      Thanks for sharing. I was really wanting to be the first one to dress our company up like a banana, but someone beat me to it. Hope nobody has taken grapes, or apples ….

      No sour grapes here: Russell Shaw is the top banana!

      LOL. I can just picture Russell standing on a corner, dressed like a big giant banana, waving at people.

      I don’t know if that image is funny, or disturbing.

      Disturbing Jay – Russell in a banana suit *shutter* I know Anna pretty well – she and her gang are just the best… she’s been pulling the Anna Banana tag for quite a few years.

      OMG! Too funny.

      I want to know this- the article uses the word “success”. Is she?

      I suddenly find you much more a-peeling. Want to know something funny (and this is TRUE)? I was the banana last year. I had a home on Broker Caravan on Halloween, and actually wore the banana during the two hour open house. It was difficult to get my head into the car, but I am a professional, after all.

      “I was the banana last year”

      Someone, somewhere has a photo of that….

      LOL…The things Folks will do for publicity…

      However, Russ, I think you look great! I haven’t seen ANYONE look as great as you in a banana suit since the “Late, Great” Charles Nelson Reiley… Remember this ad?

      Oh, well…

      Wow, I always wondered what it would be like to see a Viking banana. I guess now I know.

      Russell, is this in honor of Halloween…?

      Banana nana fo fana

      Thanks for answering my lifelong question of “What happened to the Banana Guy” every time I saw a fruit of the loom commercial. Of course you gave up underwear for real estate.

      Now thats funny! Go banana Russell! Dance in front of your listings, that will sell them! ha!

    12. [...] There was no accompanying message. Just the above cited Subject line…and of course, the picture. I looked at it for at least one full minute trying to figure out what it was. Could this be blackmail of some sort? Something looked familiar but I couldn’t quite place it. Subconsciously, 3000 pixels were streaming through my head trying to find some order.  I wanted to call my wife over to the screen for a look but one of the men in the photo appeared to be wearing a red party dress so I thought better of it.  I put aside the hard stuff many years ago but as Russell Shaw can attest, a picture alone can be worth at least a thousand words let alone as many explanations.  I zoomed in for a closer look trying to recall if I ever purposely tried on womens couture, sober or otherwise.  I counted at least three kegs of beer in the frame. I recognized a face… [...]

      Bananas are good for a juice/smoothy company, kinda quirky for a Real Estate company. But hey if that helps her differentiate, then…You Go Girl! I have to go make me a banana shake.

      I must say, Russel looks good as a banana, not to mention, great branding for Anna Banana!
