Mystery of the porcelain banana

Yesterday I was doing laundry and when I opened the cabinet in the laundry room to get the detergent, on the shelf next to the bleach was a porcelain banana.

I was taken aback for a moment, wondering who in the world (or in my life) would place a porcelain banana in our laundry room cabinet. The possibilities began to trickle into my mind...

Was it Spouse's nephews? They love to play jokes on people and do silly, unexpected things. But a porcelain banana just didn't seem like their style. Beside, it didn't seem likely that they'd have access to a porcelain banana or that they'd even think one was that funny.

Was it Anne Marie? She told me the story of the traveling shirt that is being mailed to bloggers who then wear the shirt and post photos of themselves in it on their blog. But there didn't seem to be any connection between the traveling shirt and a porcelain banana, nor had I seen any mention of a traveling porcelain banana on any blogs I frequent.

So it remains a mystery, the mystery of the porcelain banana!

Is it anything like the hidden pickle ornament on a christmas tree?
