Mr. BANANA showing up for work in the morning with his signature John Deere.
Mrs. BANANA going for a joyride on her John Deere.
What follows is the story of the BANANAs. Due to privacy concerns we are calling them the BANANAs. In real life they are BA and NA. They will soon be graduates of the Country Freeloading Academy and receive their Certified Country Freeloader (CCF) certificates.
For their student project they choose to build a massive pole garage with freeloaded labor. They achieved a nearly perfect score on the project needing only an excavator to clear the driveway.
In addition they achieved what no other graduates have yet achieved. For people unfamiliar with the principles of country freeloading, the idea is you get people to contribute to your cause and then give them small premiums (like public TV and radio do) so the supporters feel good and keep giving you more support. The BANANAs were the first students to get supporters to donate the premiums they in turn received back so they could feel good about being contributors.
The BANANAs will soon receive their CCFs as soon as we clear up a minor glitch. The BANANAs thought their tuition for the academy was free also so do not want to pay it. Once this is settled the BANANAs will join the ranks of Certified Country Freelaoders.
Congratulations to the BANANAs!
