Thousands of Bananas on Dutch Shores

Thousands of bananas washed up on a Dutch shore when a container fell off a cargo ship and burst open during a storm!

If that's not weird enough, apparently the island's residents were used to things washing up on their shores:

Terschelling residents are no strangers to stuff turning up on their beach; a year ago thousands of tennis shoes, aluminum briefcases and children's toys washed ashore, drawing crowds of treasure-hunting residents. Some 20 years ago it was a load of sweaters.

Plenty of beachcombers came early Wednesday for a look, said Buren, "but not as many as when we had the sneakers."
