You can't call yourself a true banana lover unless you're a member of the International Banana Club. Ken Bannister, T.B. ("Top Banana"), real estate agent, and creator of the International Banana Club, started collecting banana-related paraphernalia in 1972. He now has "the world's largest collection devoted to any one fruit," located in Hesperia, California. I want to join the club just so I can whip an International Banana Club Card out of my wallet whenever I feel like it. Watch the video after the jump.
