Harry Chapin's 30,000 Pounds of Bananas

I always knew the song was based on fact. I even remember putting it on a cassette so I could listen to it as we drove through Scranton PA on our vacation one year.

But I never, ever, ever thought I would see this!



"30,000 pounds of smashed bananas"

Awesome! I guess you really can find anything on the Internet!!

Heck I lived in Scranton for four years and never saw a picture. The internet is truly amazing!

It's great (the internet). We could all see the picture in which a man's life was trivialized by a goofy song. I am sure his family is happy.

You say trivialized, I say immortalized!

I am pleased they will write songs about me when I am gone... goofy or otherwise.

Thanks for posting this (I realize it was quite a while ago that you did, but it popped up on Facebook today).

I'm originally from Scranton and this song comes up in conversation fairly often (as does the quote "I drove through Scranton once"):
