How many sides does a banana have?
According to those who know, a banana has five sides.
And I bet you don't know that there's real debate about the way you should peel bananas.
Some say we should follow the example of monkeys and peel it from the bottom up. It's supposed to be easier and apparently those long stringy bits stay in the skin.
Finally, another piece of irrelevant trivia, bananas are berries, and don't ring up to debate this, because that's all we're going to say on the subject!
Some other banana trivia:
* According to an old wives' tale, the inside of a banana peel makes a great shoe polish for patent leather shoes (although we haven't tested this).
* Banana's are apparantly sleep enhancers, so eating one before bed can help kids sleep.
* There are more than 200 varieties of bananas in the world , from finger fruits to purple plantains."
