Picture of How to Eat a Banana Like a Monkey
The actual eating isn't too different from humans. The real magic is in how monkeys peel their banana to get at the goodness inside.

Bananas are delicious and work like a charm in pancakes, but odds are you're peeling them the way that you've been taught and never thought about it. So let's do it like the experts: monkeys.

Step 1: Get a banana

This part is easy and open to some choice. This banana is nice and evenly yellow. I like mine to have more brown on the outside while others insist on there being a little green. Hey, it's your banana, I'm just here to tell you about peeling it.

I've been eating bananas that way for years and I always get weird looks.
VINDICATED!!
We humans clearly have a lot to learn from our fellow primates.
Yeah although you could quite convincingly argue that they have a lot more to learn from us.

Like language, writing, network routing...

This is the only way I've ever known to peel a banana...didn't know there was any other way!
guy here in Brazil everyone eats bananas as well without needing any instructable. make this instructable for me was a waste of time because everyone knows eating bananas as well.

Americans haven't been having a problem eating them either. I put this up because most people here eat them by opening from the other end.
oh good. now yes I understand

I read in a magazine I think it was Wierd and that ripe bananas glow under a black light and that the peel can be used to filter water. I don't remember if they said what it filtered out. ??????

This is actually a great way to eat a banana. I have been eating them this way for years. It also doesn't bruise as easily this way!

Some times monkeys open the banana peel with their mouth

You can live on bananas alone.. but you get all fat .. like an American.
Now that was racist.
American is a race?
Some are. Apparently the American Presidents have to race for the White House according to the news. That's why Obama won, he's got longer legs than almost anyone else in America except for those with longer legs than him.
Wow you went there.
In my book.
Especially the way he described us.
It's only offensive because it's true of too many of us . . .and the sooner we realize we need to get of our fat backsides and do some real work the better!
I only actually said it to see if anyone would bite, it wasn't meant to be seriously offensive. Its almost an image portrayed here by the TV press/programs.. wonder how we are portrayed there, some one said toothless with poor dental health care .. is that true?
Not really. At least, not of the ones I've met.
That's the stereotype (Austin Powers), but I've met Brits and their teeth are fine. Although they do speek a different language...
Its called English btw.. not heard of it b4? lol
I speak American by the way...not heard of it before? (laugh to myself quietly)
What did they do with the dictionary on the mayflower anyway! eat it or beat indians over the head with it... perhaps. ;).

Are you 'inventing' more history now? ;) .. next thing we know, Americans will be leading escapes from Colditz, in films. lol

Have another 1/2 pound burger then.
I think this conversation has gone on for long enough... 6 MONTHS?!?! Crazy, I tell you.
you have been sat staring at your pc too long, I only spent a few mins sat at mine on this conversation. Go out side, through the thing they call "door", its really bright, it burns your eyes at first, but you'll get used to it.. its really big out there too, you should see it! ;)
door?
i think i've heard of these "door" things . . .apparently they were used before the internet was invented by al gore
hehe,very good.
I remember that, we phoned someone up with a phone in a cradle and left someone in some university a message on a board, we all crowded round 1 pc in a classroom... if I had known it was him on the other end, I would have posted "Get F*&$%".
...or have a banana !!!
