    Re: Which end do you peel your Banana from?

    I have always peeled from the stem. I had a roommate freshman year of college who peeled them the monkey way. I hated that kid so I continue to peel from the stem. Don't care if the other way is easier/better/less like a dumbass.

    Side note, pic of the banana tree blew my mind.

    Peel from the stem. Who cares how monkeys do it, fuck monkeys, they don't have cars and jets and guns. Do it the human way: stem.

    Okay, I see. I've always used the stem, like a civilzed person. I bet anyone who doesn't still eats candy bars with their hands.

    Re: Which end do you peel your Banana from?

    I just ate one peeling it "how monkeys do it" and squished the top worse than would have happened peeling from the stem and still had to deal with strings. It's no better (it's probably worse), and it's not the correct way to do it.

    This is just as mind-blowing as the sit v stand while wiping your asshole poll, for me.

    Had no idea people stood while wiping, had no idea people don't peel from the stem.

    Yea, me too... Although, this hasn't exactly got me thinking that I need to start peeling the banana in a different way.

    Re: Which end do you peel your Banana from?

    Peeled my banana backwards this morning because of this thread. Top got mushed a little and I found it harder to tear the peels apart. Found no strategic value in peeling from the bottom

    Will continue to peel from the stem, since it's a natural peel starter and makes life easier

    There's a right way and a wrong way to peel a banana.


    33 people on these boards don't know how to peel a banana.

    Re: Which end do you peel your Banana from?

    However, the stem is still the correct way to peel one.

    There are essentially zero redeeming qualities about peeling it from the "top". The fruit gets squished just the same because you have to pinch the end to get the skin to split, and you still deal with strings.

    At the very least if you make even a small slit at the stem you literally deal with ZERO squishage.

    No fucking way I'm using a goddamn knife to open a banana.

    Not surprised that a mouth-breather stem-opener would be so inefficient that he would consider using a knife.

    I said at the very least - it's not like it's a common occurrence and really only needs to be done if the banana is too ripe, which is never for me because I don't eat bananas unless they're yellow and just starting to spot.

    If there's one thing Monkey's know about it's bananas, and I will continue to follow their lead.

    I will not however being taking any hygiene tips from them.

    Just because they love eating them it doesn't mean they know what they are doing. I'm not going to start eating carrots directly out of the dirt because thats what rabbits do.
