Comment: Strawberry Banana says THANK YOU!! They appreciate the fan mail and hope Nopo will enjoy their new single "GO GO BANANA (gimme gimme now)". Nanners can be a bit of a diva - so I (Neon) will say thank you for the letter and the extras! They got very excited for everything and will probably hide it and chin it and get very angry when I have to put it away before bed. ;)
