If you read the Snope's report on this you'll see they mention Fruit of the Loom underwear as being banned on some boats. The are puzzled as there are no bananas on the label.
There is a story as to why there is no banana on the Fruit of the Loom label.
It seems that a group of executives from Fruit of the Loom went fishing
with Bouncer Smith out of Miami
Beach. Bouncer is a firm believer in No Bananas.
The executives were not having any luck. Bouncer searched the boat for bananas and found none. One of the executives joked that there was a banana on the label of their underwear. Bouncer made them all throw their underwear overboard
. They immediately started catching fish
. When they got back to work, they had the banana removed from the Fruit of the Loom label.
Now remember I said this was a story. I don't know if it is true, but I know Bouncer and I believe he would force people to throw away banana underwear.
If you want to charter
trip out of Miami
, I highly recommend Bouncer.
