Banana Hammock Documentary!

My all time favourite. A gold camouflage banana hammock. On a quad to boot! What a sight!

I just uploaded my pictures and I got 4 hits and they all went bananas. Now I have 8 new entries for Banana Hammocks. Oh Lord! I have to fix it and people keep hitting on the site and its causing some problems. Give me a break... for all the times to have glitches. Now I am really embarrassed!

 

Okay, after all the whining about the PowerPoint I am going to put up a blog on the Banana Hammocks. It is only because of the many complaints and sniveling that I am succumbing to pressure. Goodness gracious and I thought we were respectful people.

 

 

Marble sacks, Speedos, Budgie Smugglers (Australian term), Weiner slings,  and Banana Hammocks.

This marble sack even has the strings. Remember our real marble bags, the purple "Crown Royal" with the gold cords. This guy has white cords.
..

 

Alright here goes… Throughout my Greek travels I have encountered many different men. Some local and some from far off places. Which of these men come from Greece or South America, we will never know. I didn’t actually have the nerve to interview all of them but some of them I did ask a question or two.

 

An English fellow told me he liked to wear his “Banana Hammock” because it is so much more comfortable than the full length trunks. You see when men swim, the trunks fill with water and bubbles come popping out. That makes women think they are passing gas. So the English like to wear a swim suit that does not allow air to gather and release. Go figure! As if men really care about that.

No body fat on this puppy. I am moving my lounge chair where the white towel is. I am sure they won't mind.
Most think they are so clever when they let one go. I guess not the English. They can be a bit stuffy sometimes.

 

Now I talked to a Greek man. He said that he liked the looks and so did the women. You think? Does he actually think I am asking him because it looks good or because I am mocking him? Okay, there is that confidence thing again. He likes it for the looks.

 

A gay fellow with his partner said they liked it because it enhanced things. Oh give me a break! If you are with someone why do you need enhancement? But anyway, that was his feelings and I have to respect them.

 

That is as much as the interview process went.

All different shapes and sizes!
That was hard enough and I can tell you I did not go to them at a beach with a microphone in hand. It was always after a glass of wine and we were already talking about different things. Actually the English fellow was on the boat back from Turkey and so there was no wine involved in that conversation

 

I want everyone to know how challenging this task has been. I have had to take my camera out at the most inopportune moments and focus on something that is not necessarily a scene that would be deemed photogenic. So I am busy trying to pretend I am taking a picture of the view and I change my angle and snap. Sometimes I get what I want and sometimes I get a lot of leg hairs. Sometimes I get just a blur because I am moving too fast. So I hope you all appreciate the hard work that I have had to do to get the shots I have. Now in hindsight, all I had to do was wait until Super Paradise and I would have had hundreds of buff guys in the smallest of small marble sacks you have ever seen. But I had no idea so I have the wonderful views from every island I have visited. Enjoy and again I apologize to all the gentlemen in the pictures. It was done in fun and my friends back home need a life. I guess I do too, as the ruins, the history, the museums, the architecture, the wars and the political unrest didn’t interest me, Banana Hammocks were my mission. I think that speaks for itself. What a Greek trip to celebrate turning 50. My mum would be so proud!!!!!! Actually she would be there snapping the photos with me and we would be howling.
