There should be a 'maybe' button with a qualifying box to give reasons!

For myself, my immediate thought was maybe...i.e. if it was also with ham and peach or with sultanas and roasted peanuts (sounds odder than the original question doesn't it!?)

I might make a banana and peanut butter sandwich, but I just can't imagine banana with mayo. Yuck!

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

Um, just plain no. Since I too like PB&B sandwiches, I might try PB and maduros. These are ripe (skin is either completely or mostly black), sweet plantains which get pan fried and salted.
If you're gonna make a Key Lime pie, you have to use real Key Limes!

My wife eats this sandwich all the time. I think it might be a southern thing?

I voted yes, although I can't say it would purely be mayo / bananas.

Mayo and peanut butter is good.
Mayo, peanut butter with bacon is better.
Add bananas and it would probably be terrific.

I would probably add a squirt of lemon juice or zest to the mayo with bananas. Or maybe a touch of ground cardamom.

Bananas and mayo by itself, not so much.

I'd have an issue with the texture. Bananas and mayo are both, um, slimy IMHO.

My thoughts exactly Dawg...."gushy" is another thought.
There are few things I really dislike, two are bananas and peanut anything.
Mayo is a keeper though.
