HOW TO PEEL A BANANA

Odds are you've been peeling bananas
the wrong way most of your adult life!
(HINT: Open other end.)

Here's a much easier way to peel a banana:

A banana has two ends.
One end has a stem (see photo),
where most people start to try to peel the banana.
This end works, but it is often times difficult
to get started, and hard to puncture the peel.

Turn the banana upside down, and start at
the other end, or the tip of the banana.
Pinch the tip between your thumb and forefinger.
This pinching causes the top seams
of the banana to split open.
Now you can easily peel away the skin.
It's as simple as that, and easy too.

By the way,
this is exactly how monkeys peel their bananas.

If you already knew this,
you're smarter than a monkey.
If not . . .

(Oh well, nevermind!)
