Default How to open a banana like a monkey!

I stumbled upon this video on Yahoo just now and figured you all might appreciate it. Though I fear that many of you already know this and I'm just an idiot for being ignorant. Oh well....for fear of being heckled, here goes:

Okay, well thanks to everyone so far for not making me feel like an ignorant fool, as expected (sometimes it's menacing bringing things up to discussion to such a smart/knowledgeable group!). I saw someone open a banana like this on a YouTube video once and was like.....?????...why did you just open it like that?

I would think R.I.P. pretty much spells it out! It was a heart attack about a month ago!

Matt, there is a real nice memoriam to him in the 'new member & social anouncements' thread - just below Tiki hut I believe. He died june 16 & his daughter emailed ppl on his email list to tell them the next day. Lorax posted the sad news in a very nice way. I read that thread from start to finish.

A new member designed the banana with a cigar in memory of Tog, so if you see it - you know.

Yeah, that does work pretty well, but only if they're in the right stage of ripeness. If they're starting to get a little brown, they just squash up in the middle and you end up with a big mess LOL. Trust me, I've done it.
