Of course the other fun part is that bananas have been genetically engineered by humans over around 10,000 years to their current form - they were much closer in shape to breadfruit originally.

/Also most people open bananas the wrong way - via the "tab"/stem - if you open them from the opposite end it is much easier (especially if they aren't very ripe), and it also usually pulls the stringy bits away, which are usually left if you open from the stem.
