The Rastafarians were right!

Aside from the juvenile humour of giggling at how a banana is perfectly shaped and sized to fit the human mouth, and how the contents don't squirt in your face, I also have to wonder whether it would completely blow the collective mind of intelligent designers to turn the banana around to face the other way. It is no longer conveniently curved towards the mouth, shock horror.

Then there is that whole "God created the perfect food" argument. Um, no. The banana- the sweet ready to eat fruit as we know it- was cultivated from a mutated plantain tree by a Jamaican dude called Jean Francois Poujot in 1836. Either God created an imperfect fruit that was improved by evolution and selective breeding, or God is Jamaican.
