Do you mean the cow? I was never that great with literary motifs. The theme is definitely self-interest.

More about situational morals and double standards in my loose translation "Kali steal somebody cow is good, somebody steal Kali cow is bad"

I see - Kiepski in a cartoon. :)

As for that banana, it is to smile widely. So, I have never heard it before. I prefer to dry the teeth.

As for "mieć banana na twarzy", I guess it's possible that there was a period of time when it was more popular than these days... I don't know when it originated - maybe when bananas started to be commonly available in shops in Poland ;) 🍌

It means 1990s. And I have never heard it from my students. Amazing.
