Banana Peel Trucker Hat (for bananas)

       Artist Brock Davis' kids were a bit grumpy recently due to the apparent dorkiness of their breakfast. Thanks to a little quick thinking and an x-acto knife, their bananas were suddenly stylish enough to sit with the cool kids.

Brock's art reminded me of one of my favorite breakfast transformations - giving the Land O' Lakes butter lady boobs! Thanks, Dad, for showing me this awesome trick a long, long time ago.

"My kids were grumpy at breakfast this morning, so I had this idea to make a quick banana peel trucker hat for the banana to wear using the peel of the banana. This cheered them up and it made the banana look relatively hip."
-Brock Davis

How to make:
"Banana: Take 1 or 2 bananas. One to make the hat, one to model the hat. This could also be made using one banana. Carve the shape of the hat using an x-acto knife. Leave one of the banana peel sides longer, to make the rim of the hat. Most bananas come with a little sticker. Use this sticker to serve as the logo on the hat, if you want your hat to have a logo.
Simple project, takes about 5 minutes yet the memories will last a lifetime."
-Brock Davis

Boobs: Take 1 box of Land O' Lakes butter. Cut the label off at the knees. Cut off the knees leaving a little space around them. Cut a flap in the part of the box where the lady is holding the butter on three sides (left, right, and bottom) with an x-acto knife. Tape the knees to the back of the box.  Lift flap and blow your third grade buddy's minds!
