Arguments against the banana argument[edit]

Would include eg [1]. 31.49.137.175 (talk) 20:44, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

Only humans use the "tab" on bananas[edit]

It just occurred to me that Ray's "argument" has the "tab" on the wrong side of the banana - monkeys and apes (specifically the natural-banana-eaters with hands) actually open it from the other end, by pinching the "nub" between thumb and index finger - causing it to split.

A quick google will show many videos of the practice in action - and most people agree it's far less likely to "smoosh"[sic] the banana from leverage than the "tab" method is.

It might be worth including this in the article to further point out how ludicrous the "godly" design of the banana is? Feel free to ignore the suggestion though - just thought you folks might find the "bottom-opening bananas" interesting :P 62.7.71.94 (talk) 09:31, 12 July 2017 (UTC)

Reverse bananas[edit]

So what fruit is the "BibleGodBotherers' Nightmare?' (Bananaskinus floorsliponis excluded) Anna Livia (talk) 15:47, 12 September 2017 (UTC)

A better fruit[edit]

Would be the strawberry.

  • Changes colour to show ripeness.
  • At ground level - rather than having to climb up trees.
  • Does not have a wrapper that needs to be disposed of.
  • Some varieties grow wild rather than having to be maintained.

And is the durian a good counter-argument to this 'theory'? Anna Livia (talk) 10:15, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

Where the argument trips up[edit]

Among other reasons this. Anna Livia (talk) 16:39, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
