If you grew up in the 50's and 60's in The U.S., you
probably associate the word "chiquita" with bananas. That's the purpose
of advertising, and the irritating jingle, "I'm Chiquita Banana," sure
did what it was supposed to do.
The camera (camara) is really a Brownie Bullet with a Spanish
faceplate. There were also Chiquitas with English faceplates. Odd,
isn't it ?
There were two types of Chiquita Banana ladies. One was sappily happy.
The other was on the slutty side.
The suggestive curve and inviting wink ? Is there something about
bananas I don't know ?
This is the happy Chiquita Banana lady. Is there a connection between
loose morals and happiness ?
Disturbing innuendos. A banana pie and a buck-toothed simpleton.
I don't know.
