The Burning Question*: What colour should a banana be when you eat it?
Let distract you from the ‘serious’ news with one of life’s REAL dilemmas. (*not really)

WE KNOW HOW you feel.

It’s Monday, everything hurts and the whole week looms ahead.

So do like we do here HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing issues.


This week: In the history of fruit, none has ever been as divisive as the humble banana.

There is no doubt that basically anything can be improved by adding a banana, cereal, sandwiches, steaks (maybe not that one), but when should you crack it open?

Green? All yellow? Some black spots? All black? Do you wait until it’s a paste and spread it on sandwiches?

What do you think? What colour should a banana be when you eat it?

Poll Results:

Yellow - bananas are yellow, watch any cartoon (5230)
Yellow with spots - they're sweeter (2879)
Green - freshness matters (1410)
I prefer apples (606)
Can't we all get along? (144)
Black - rotten is a state of mind (114)
