Off in a well-lit corner of his studio, Doc Bill Ruger examined his work. Earlier that day, Lestiban had called him frantically from the airport. He was on his way to Odessa and Lestiban was both eager and anxious that Doc finish the object.
Doc turned the device over in his hands, admiring his own work. The controls were simple. There was the Hater Rebater pot. The scale went from PRS Forum on the low end, through various levels of Troll Tamer all the way to TGP, the highest yet discovered house of haters. There was the requisite On/Off switch and the Big Red Button that activated the Beam. Doc puzzled at the hastily added last control, the Banana Button. But, he had dutifully added it and the electronic subassembly as specified by Lestiban.
But the rest of the device was all Doc's. It was the culmination of over 7 month's hard work with research aided by PRSh and numerous artists including Carlos, Dave, Davy and surprisingly, a certain D. Gilmour.
Doc attached the gold label with not a little pride:

Lesteban called Doc Ruger from Odessa. He was still wearing his Sebastian period costume, and for some reason, didn't feel all that awkward, though he was getting some strange looks in the hotel lobby.
"Whaddaya got for us, Doc?"
"The Fartz Capacitor is ready, Lesteban," Doc replied. "Tell me, what's the Banana Button for?"
"I'm not really sure," he answered Doc. "I guess we'll find out as the investigation continues. But thanks so much for getting it together...and please thank PRSh for his involvement. Somehow I think it will work with that other thing I brought, you know, The Hammer. Talk soon!"
And with that, Lesteban walked out of the hotel and onto Lanzheronovskaya Street. He had a hunch that he'd find some answers at Odessa's famous Archeological Museum, the oldest in the Black Sea area. The weather in Odessa was mild, and it was a sunny day. Lesteban walked briskly toward the address he'd been given.
But somehow he couldn't shake the feeling that he was being followed. He looked back, and didn't see anything.
"Strange," he muttered to himself.

Doc glanced up at the large Fartzmeter on the far wall. The needle was hovering between uneasy and caution. He knew this to be because of all of the hate and discontent on TGP. Even without logging on, the effects permeated the Earth like a bean burrito long past it's prime.
Doc resolved to make some additional modifications to the Fartz Capacitor. For one, the rare earth magnets inside would need replacing with freshly mined specimens. That meant another trip to Connemara. While "(I Know) I'm Losing You" played in the background for inspiration, Doc placed a call to Clifden, Ireland and Abbeyglen Castle.
OK, Les, Hows is this. Anyone running around hating and blabbing hate is not that smart. Therefore those that are not that smart have monkey brains. Any homosapien with only monkey brains is a little crazy (insert BANANAS). So as you say the bananas are a symbol. Yes they are a symbol of the insanity that drives (feeds) the hate in those with monkey brains.
When I saw the thread title, I thought it pertained to the Dani Alves (soccer player) banana controversy. Yea, I was terribly wrong.
Shhhhh! Don't mention B-n-n-s or you'll draw the attention of the NSA. B-n-n-s are very close to the government, we've invaded foreign countries several times just to protect the yellow fruit.
