I noticed some stories circulating about Charlie Chaplin's movie The Circus that claim a time traveler is in a short clip of the film as shown below.
My theory is that no time traveler is shown here, just a woman talking to a banana. To back up my idea I typed "talking to a banana" as the criterial for a Google image search and came up with many examples of people talking to bananas and page one of the search is shown below. I think the banana in the vintage Chaplin film had turned brown as we know bananas will do when they are way too ripe and that accounts for the dark color leading some to believe it was a cell phone. (I should add that another theory in the article suggests this is a hearing aid, but who would have a hearing aid in a Charlie Chaplin movie--afterall weren't they silent movies???)
