He should have kept it in his pocket, now the lad has a criminal record...

He should have ran, before they jumped him, then ate the banana while running, and thrown the banana peel just over his shoulder (you all know what would happen next). Then he would have gotten away!

He must have not watched cartoons when he was a kid.

Reports say this man always has a banana or a rolled up sock in a front pocket of his pants to lure hotties to his store.
