How to open a banana like a monkey


This is one of the more random posts on Cup of Jo, but this video about opening bananas correctly made me laugh. (Also, love the dude's monkey PJs.)

A perfect split! Will definitely do it next time!

I just learned this a couple of weeks ago from a 7 yr old and she said the same thing "open the banana like a monkey!"

It's just crazy how just the simplest things how there is so many different ways to ackomplish the same goal.

Heather said...

I love this! Can't wait to try it!

Rachel said...

That is so funny! AND when you open it from the other end, the stem can be a little handle for when you get down to the last bite.

Erin said...

That's genius! And now I'll never be able to open a banana again without thinking of this video.

Hahaha... my boyfriend tried to make me peel my banana like a monkey the other day, and I was like, I'm not a monkey! I'll stick to peeling it my way! :D

I posted this video last month on my blog and have been telling everyone about it! I feel like a moron for taking 25 years to learn this!

That made me laugh. Great.

Have a blissful time!:)

that's pretty great, though i'm more a fan of the illogical-yet-totally-works 'banana flick,' where you hold the banana from the stem but upside down, curved toward you, and whip it forward so the weight of the banana splits the skin from the stem. ta-da!(?)

I just want to say that I tried this yesterday and found it to be no more effective than my old method of peeling from the stem. Just saying... =P

a friend showed me this a few years ago and i couldn't believe how much easier it is to open it this way! the stem makes the perfect handle too.

I can totally relate with the challenge of getting a banana open from the stem, but now...my eyes are opened. Thank you for posting this video! :-D

Brilliant!!

Rachael said...

Hehe that's so funny. I'm going to grab a banana right now and try it out.

ohleoluca said...

hahaha! omigod, it never crossed my mind to try the other side of the banana! ps i love your random posts, they are always hilarious.

futurelint said...

I'm so gonna try this tonight! When I was a kid and had trouble with opening a banana at school, the 1st grade teacher would always come around to help - she'd draw a zipper on the banana in pen and the force of the pen drawing on the peel would weaken it in that spot so when you tried to peel it, it would always split right on the zipper! I LOVED it!

EvaForeva said...

Hahaha. My partner and I always argued how to open it up the "right" way and I am seeing I was wrong all along. He always would tell me that monkeys know best...

Bells said...

That is absalutely genius.
I feel like my whole world has just been changed.
