33rd Place - 5th Annual Interactive Fiction Competition (1999)
A silly little in-joke game that denizens of the IFmud may understand, though others won't. You're in a room with a monkey, a robot, and a giant flaming head, and you pass bananas back and forth. Has some amusing references to IF that aren't only accessible to people who live on the MUD, but otherwise there's not much there.

Ooooo-kaaaaay. This must be what Sins Against Mimesis felt like to people who hadn't read the IF newsgroups. Pass the Banana, near as I can tell, is a little collection of in-jokes originating on ifMUD... I'm not a very frequent visitor to the MUD, though, so my associations with these things are very tenuous indeed.

there's nothing to it, but what's there works
Other games in this year's competition might have more plot, more puzzles, or more elaborate settings, but none have more bananas.

This game is apparently a big in-joke about ifmud, an online forum/interactive multiplayer world that many IF authors and players once used.
In ifmud, there were many monkey jokes, and people would pass 'bananas' made from text to each other. It includes a parser that allows people to play games together known as Floyd, modeled on the robot in Planetfall. It's main area is an adventurers lounge, with maps and a trophy case.
This game takes those elements and makes a tiny game out of it. That's really all there is to it.
