Since childhood I have had my own way of eating an apple. Many people have said I'm weird for doing this.

I start by biting near the core at the distal end. Then I take circumferential bites all around the core. Then I bite a channel down to the proximal (stem) end, around which I bite. I am now left with the juiciest bit of the apple to enjoy in segments.

I know I know, this thread is useless without pictures!

If you want to eat an apple in a situation where it would be inconvenient to have to throw away the core, you can just eat the whole thing.

I'm glad I've always been able to throw away the banana peel.

Oh, but then the apple seed will grow in your tummy and leaves and branches will be coming out of your mouth and ears and....

Oops! I remember now. That doesn't *really* happen. That is just something my big brother told me once when I was little.

I think this thread would have gotten more attention if it read..."The proper way to eat a banana"

I was on vacation...so I missed this one.
Lots of responses popped up in me little head, but for now......I'm going out to $3.99 spaghetti dinner shortly and can't be properly devilish on an empty stomach.
Maybe for dessert...

Ummmm... humans are primates. You should say 'Did you know that the rest of the primate world..."

The classical music...the face on the banana costume got me going, then the monkey tackling it and then dragging it off...I am SO easily amused.
