Any remaining readers of this blog who have not yet succumbed to the prevalent fashion for Superlambanana Ennui
may be thrilled to discover that the Liverpool Echo
- in conjuction with Bruntwood - is running a "SuperLOVEbanana" competition.
The prize for the winning entry is a 4 foot high superlambanana model, with two runners-up prizes of a mini lambanana.
To be in with a chance of adorning your own home with a superlambanana, you need to submit your 250-word entry by the closing date of October 3rd. It can be a poem, a song, a story, or a memory.
(I have visions of nascent poets all across Liverpool desperately trying to come up with words that rhyme with superlambanana. Pop and I devised a deeply unpleasant limerick between us. Fortunately, I failed to commit it to memory.)
In no way is this blog entry merely an excuse for me to publish this photograph of a mini lambanana which I took using my mobile phone on the way into work one day last week, and had completely forgotten about until this afternoon.
