‘The Great Banana Shortage’ by Paul Brians

Paul Brians’s latest blog post is titled “The Great Banana Shortage”.

Paul says, “Sometimes the allusions in Common Errors in English are very indirect. In the entry for “any where/anywhere” on page 19, the line “We do not sell bananas any more” is an allusion to 1923 hit song performed by Eddie Cantor, “Yes, We Have No Bananas.””
