is there any other way into them, without having to bite the peel? i hate doing that
i'm a bit anal when it comes to bananas.
would hit it for six even though you asked them not to.
It'll all become clear.
It's a once-in-a-lifetime thing. Like going on the London Eye. The Meths Eye.
pistachio you just have to let it go. You could end up peeling your nail off.
just adapt it "open Pistachio"
don't shut your mouth until your can put some water in it though otherwise you get that horrible peel residue.
i hate doing it.
it just bends in.
and i like my bananas quite ripe, so its fairly soft.
also, why do supermarkets only sell green bananas?
It is ripe.
so they can be transported without risk of bruising (y)
i can just split it open and spread the peel, cos i'm an expert
Why are you all being stupid?! IT'S NOT RIPE.
it might be just ripe to the point where the top is too bendy for you to break.
as a consumer of only the finest bananas (organic, naturally) i have found this to be the case also, even in the most ripe of situations.
I put it to you, zapsta, that most modern breeds of banana have been GENETICALLY ENGINEERED to be more peel-able. this is an actual fact.
and i had a choice: organic or fairtrade. fairtrade was 10p more expensive though so i thought fuck the workers, i'm paying too much for these bananas cos i'm buying them in m&s anyway, i'm not letting you take another 10p.
though it's not just any bag...
It also feels like you're eating two small bananas, which is brilliant.
they do that in zoos
Just hold both end and snap it downwards, with the bend.
then push it down while stamping.
forming the quintessential peeled banana shape (four peeled strands) then squeezing the bottom so it flies into my mouth like in the jungle book, i think.
in a very commanding voice
i'm not sure
what's wrong with you? bitch, are you retarded?
Am I your friend?
the only fruit you've ever eaten is Juicy Fruit by wrigleys
I ate one yesterday, in fact.
fisher price press at that.
then I fell asleep and was woken up by a man shouting "OI! CARDIFF!" at me.
I don't just wake up stroking a banana
Will that help?
i've never eaten one before. should i live blog my findings?
thank god your here Ant
get that little brown bit at the 'bottom' of the banana between your thumb and forefinger and squeeze the fucker. it'll split open nicely and peel from there. you'll be eating the banana upside down as an added bonus
what is wrong with you?
spit out bitter black bit
