I am a straight banana, originally uploaded by benaston.

Not many bananas are straight, and they’re all the poorer for being so.

After enjoying a straight banana, I tried to get to the bottom of what made it so enjoyable. And so, here it is, a definitive explanation of why straight bananas are the thing for 2009.

1) They peel more evenly – you don’t get that pesky outside edge being longer than the inside curve
2) They tessellate more efficiently – definitely one for the mentalists(enviro), it means you can fit more bananas in a box
3) They are easier to eat – none of that pesky wrist strain

That’s it really, all because I got a straight banana.
