SAVANNAH, GA — Peter Sharpe of Savannah, Georgia yesterday caused in uproar in a local grocery store when he celebrated grabbing the last bushel of bananas in the fruit aisle. Witnesses said Sharpe grabbed the bananas and started yelling and running around the store with this arms out like an airplane.
“I thought something horrible had happened,” said grocer, Barbara Harris, “Like someone had spilled milk on the floor, or gotten into a verbal altercation about avocados. I turned my head and there was this man going crazy.”
Harris said after the airplane celebration, Sharpe removed his shirt and made his way through the frozen foods section, jumping and hugging other customers. “I think at first he terrified some people, I know that a little girl started crying, but once people realized he was just super excited, his energy rubbed off on them. One guy even gave Sharpe an approving nod, and grabbed a bag of pizza rolls that he’d been eyeing down for a few minutes.” said Harris.
Sharpe then made his way to the bread isle where he climbed a shelf and back-flipped off, sending white, wheat and everything bagels tumbling down to the ground. He then headed to the wine section where he uncorked a bottle of champagne and sprayed it in his mouth and on his head.
“I’ve never seen anything like it,” said cheese station employee Ellen Quick, “The guy must really love bananas.”
Sharpe finished his celebration by doing a lap around the produce section and sliding on his knees in front of his shopping cart. In total the celebration lasted around 5-10 minutes and involved upwards of 12-15 customers and employees, all of whom had no idea what was going on. “There are some crazy people out there,” added Harris.
We caught up with Sharpe who just offered up a quick quote, saying, “What can I say? I’m just really passionate about my fruit.”
