There’s only one rule every person should follow when eating a banana in front of other human beings: never, ever look someone in the eye.
It’s weird and a little uncomfortable because bananas have a very… sexual shape… and it’s hard not to imagine the banana as ~~something else~~ when it’s making its way into someone’s mouth.
Of course, all this nonsense aside, people really should be able to eat a banana however and whenever they damn well please.
Unless, it seems, you live in Egypt, where it’s recommended you just don’t eat a banana EVER, if you don’t want to get arrested and sentenced to prison.
In a story that’s hard to believe took place in 2017. A 25-year-old Egyptian singer has been sentenced to two years behind bars after she released a music video featuring her peeling and suggestively eating a banana in front of a room full of men.
