Banana Coup is a humorous account of the coup and seeks to destabilize all military coups and authoritarian systems into cauldron of postmodern humor.

 

In the curfew ridden Mandala City, patrolling office Mendez Gomez reads the popular mirror: “Banana coup deflated heroically. Conspirators of the banana coup arrested and their Eco -friendly uniforms confiscated. Democratic loyalists also get imprisoned. Supporting middle men and women taken into preventive custody.

Leader of the Banana Coup Middle Deuce flees the scene of the crime, camouflaged by environment friendly uniform, being concealed in the gigantic human- beard hedge of the hotel Oriental Peninsula.

City Mandala placed under curfew.” The remote, handled by the lone cop on duty, opened the television effortlessly to the interview on Banana Coup hosted by the TV channel Musk Citadel.

Ms Moses Hillary Lake-view interviews the prominent political scientist Dr. Prometheus Bacon. Ms. Moses Hillary Lake view: “Well Dr. Prometheus Bacon, why would the coup be characterized as a Banana Coup? The term I remember was media-padded into frosted lexicon after its reference became associated with the cult text on Political Scientology. Dr. Prometheus Bacon grins into a traditional Lexi-university smile and then balloons his ample squeaky cheeks into a guffaw. The few hairs on his hair challenged head rise up rhapsodically. Then in his husky baritone he intoned:” The Banana Coup is named after a cocktail of events which cajoled to a resurrection in political circuits. The following elements within the coup make it a Banana Coup. (a) Zero bloodiness or survival carnival. (b) Media-pulation (c) Machiavellian- blockbustering.” Ms. Moses Hillary Lake view’s face blooms to a surprising consternation with a widespread egalitarian smile, and she chirps in:” Dr. Prometheus Bacon you are a maverick of media suitability. By all means expand these nano-political interjections and inflate them with content-elastic and detailed enlightenment.” Dr. Prometheus Bacon: “Ms. Moses Hillary Lake view, you are a fair weather troubadour of persuasive-olotry. Let the keyhole terms be transmuted into hoodwinking figs. Zero bloodiness or nonviolent carnival resembled the coupists. The coupists wearing Eco-freindly uniform were Govt. conscious and dizzydent conscious. Only a single tank was used to eject the dizzydent coupists who were merely hide-and seeking in hotel Oriental Peninsula. The tank that rammed into the wall of the Oriental peninsula damaged only a portion of it and thus created an exquisite architecture of post modernism whose use to thwart and capture the coupists will be iconized into the annals of historical monuments. Thus in the process of deflating the coup, a minimalism of rubble and fragments became visible illuminations of a great historical spectacle. Ms. Moses Hillary Lake view, ” By all means this has created a political structure, one of defused politics where the plot itself underwent a series of captivated suspense with each moment becoming a saga of reality. Saying this she smiles slyly at Dr. Prometheus bacon and remarks: “Please enunciate your reminder term: Media-pulation.”, Dr. Prometheus expounds, ” Media-pulation within the Banana Coup has attained the heights of permissive sanction. Each stage of the coup was media-reminded to the live audience having only a civilian conscience. Media-pulation worked as an extrasensory apparatus, translating the intentions of the not so sure coupists who at each stage were anticipating dizzydent mass support. The Govt. conscious loyalists were also waiting to show their loyalties in either ways. Thus I proclaim Media-Pulation as a buzz word” and motions a slap into the air. A scared mosquito escapes deliriously. Ms. Moses Hillary Lake view gives a sly wink and smiley frown and pauses and then gushes melodiously: ” You are right there. Media-pulation will find its glasnost of working in many actions similar to the Banana Coup. You are a word snatcher, you notorious. Prometheus Bacon. And may I ask you what is meant by Machiavellian blockbustering?” Dr. Prometheus Bacon makes a whizzing sound and then rumbles, ” At every stage of the Banana Coup, the coupists and the coup thwarters were anticipating the reaction of the public in terms of exercising profound loyalties. By Media-pulation they created a series of glasnost plots depending on whose side the public would take. Media-Pulated discourse of public silence swung the Eco-friendly loyalists to thwart the coup staged by the Eco-friendly dizzydents. Ms. Moses Hillary Lake view shouts suddenly: “Our time is up.” She does a somersault and Prometheus Bacon is taken aback. She removes her impeccable tweeds and reveals an Eco-friendly uniform. She says to Dr. Prometheus Bacon: ” You have disproved your loyalties to the Banana Coupists. Here take this, you! She starts pummeling him with an over sized Banana. Dr. Prometheus Bacon is utterly shocked and is at a loss to understand why the identity of Middle Deuce turned out to be Ms. Moses Hillary Lake view. Dr. Prometheus Bacon falls flat on the lawn grass in front of the studio. The curtains close and the TV scrawls in italics: “You have been watching a Banana Coup.
