Going bananas at KPRC 2: We aren’t masking our mistake

Things are a little BANANAS here at KPRC 2 | HOUSTON LIFE

HOUSTON – KPRC 2 made a mistake on a graphic about face coverings Wednesday and the internet is having fun with it.

Instead of writing that one could use homemade masks, scarves or a bandannas, someone wrote “scarfs” and “bananas,” but it was the “bananas” that really got the internet talking.

Making bananas foster

As we say, when life gives you bananas, make bananas foster! The KPRC thinktank has come up with a great idea.

We’re making a banana-inspired facemask that you can buy and all the proceeds will go to the Houston Food Bank.

Here’s how you do it: Text “feedhou” to 41444, and put the codeword “banana” in the notes section of the donation page. With your donation of $20 or more, we will mail you a banana face mask. More information here.
