The Proper Way to Peel a Banana

250px-Saimiri_sciureus-1_Luc_Viatour120px-Banana_and_cross_sectionI saw this video today and was struck by the fact that I have been peeling bananas the wrong day for decades. I had to share it for all Turley bloggers to save time on future human v. banana incidents. I have personally tried this technique and had extremely satisfying results in my limited study. Each banana was left intact and unmarred.

This is just one more benefit that you can’t get on other legal sites (I know some of you have been straying). The Turley blog does not just make for better news, it makes you better people. Remember that my potassium-challenged friends every time you peel a banana.

The credit however goes to monkeys who have been peeling bananas this way for centuries before our eyes. Some however are a bit messier than others:

If creationists are looking for proof that man could not have evolved from monkeys, we may have proof in the peeling of a banana. If we are a higher order of evolved life, how come monkeys are starter at peeling bananas?

  1. I just love it when scientists get involved with studying behavior patterns.

    OK…so it was off topic. When you can shoot me. :>)

  2. One of my earliest childhood memories was from when I was about 3 or 4 years old. My aunt had taken us to the Brookfield Zoo in Chicago. One of the chimps was hunched over, going to town on his, er, monkeyhood. Whem I innocently asked my aunt, “What’s that monkey doing with his tail?” my aunt hurriedly rushed me away to go check out the giraffes.

    About 8 years later, alone in my room, just me and my Farah poster, the realization hit me: that was no tail! And I at last discovered why my aunt was so determined to look at the giraffe’s that day instead.

    Thank you for the monkey peeing in his mouth video.
    I am going to have gag reflex dreams for the next two weeks.
    Don’t worry I will share the video with everyone I know, just to spread the pain, and so they can have gag dreams too.

  4. I was at the National zoo when a mother gorilla used her urine to whipe down her baby and her own face. Should have had a video camera. The adults in the crowd reacted less mature than the children. The zoo is a major trip!

  5. Call me fussy, but I for one don’t think we should be taking culinary lessons from an animal that eats its own faeces

  6. commoner, ” I was at the National zoo when a mother gorilla used her urine to whipe down her baby and her own face.”
    I saw a documentary of indigenous people in North Africa, semi-nomadic herders by lifestyle, that used cattle urine for bathing their children. It’s acidic and kills bacteria and drives away many parasites and insects. Pretty smart actually.

    I also like visiting the zoo and the visitors are often the most interesting exhibit.

  8. No, no, there are two ways to open a banana that are just fine.
    You are probably either a big-endian or small-endian regarding soft-boiled eggs, too.
