    Even now, 30 years after KISS faded into cultural obscurity, Gene Simmons has an estimated worth of $400 million.

    I wonder how those kids who got Banana Jrs are doing?

    Has the Banana Computer kept up with the new tech? A Banana Phone and Banana Tablet?

    This ad looks like it could have come straight from the pages of National Lampoon.

    One of my favorite Bloom County strips. Second only to “Can’t stop! Got Rock and Roll in my soul!”

    I think this commercial could still work today, if marketed to grandparents.

    Forget Gene Simmons. They need to sign Bananarama to a promotional contract.

    I remember the original computer ad on TV that engendered this take-off. It was cloyingly, flagrantly manipulative, even by advertising standards.

    Did Gene ever go on record with a comment on this?

    This is a RIOT! Do NOT let Microsoft or Apple ad people see this! They WILL “appropriate” it!

    Sometimes a banana is just a banana.

    Don’t forget the BananaWatch. Not only will it make you exercise, it will shut off all those pesky other devices that keep you from exercising.

    I wonder how much big Banana Corp. paid Gene Simmons for this ringing “endorsement”?

    I am of the opinion this is the strip that really put Bloom County on the map in terms of awareness within pop culture.

    Chaim Witz was born in ’49. The state of the art when he was “a child” was the IBM 7000 series – the first IBM computers built with transistors instead of vacuum tubes.
