Have you ever slipped on a banana?
well?... have you?
I think you should, if not for the experience of slipping on a banana but for the right to say "hey, I slipped on a bananan once"
ask people around you if they slipped on a bananana, you'll see its quite a normal thing, there's no shame in slipping on a bananana, infact I think most people will say its quite a feat

I'd feel sorry for you if you have never slipped on a banana, I dont know how anyone would function in society knowing they were such an oddball to never have slipped on a banana, I'd die from embarrassment from all the people staring
but you know what? you do you, if you want to the be an enigma that has never slipped on a bananaa then I guess its just something you have to live with
dont feel too shameful about it

Nope, because who the hell throws their banana peels on the ground? That's so trashy.

I've legit wondered a lot about why/how the banana peel became such a symbol of slipperiness, as they don't tend to be that slippery. Did the bananas of old have a different texture entirely? Were banana peels simply a such common occurrence that no matter how difficult they were to slip on people managed this rare feat regardless enough times that it become so known? What is the secret and history to this deepening mystery?!

And no I've never slipped on a banana. Or peel.

To truly slip on banana one must become a banana.

Please don't burn me like a witch.

Hasn't there been a Myth Busters episode about slipping on a banana peel? I've never seen anyone slip on it, except for classic cartoon characters.

Banana peels are pretty common on the ground on the side of the road, because many people will eat a banana for breakfast then pitch the peel out of the window because it's biodegradable.

I've slipped on one riding a bike, but I didn't fall.

If you set a banana peel on the ground white side down and step on it, it can be pretty slippery.

I stepped on one once and landed my ass on solid concrete. The pain was numbed out by the ridiculousness of it all. "Holy shit.. this is just like the cartoons!"

Either the white side has to touch the floor, or two peels' white sides are touching each other and then you step on top of that.

Let me add to that question

have you ever slipped and accidentally done the splits and given yourself groin and leg pain?

So it is possible! XD Well then, there is truth to the myth... thanks for shedding light on the unknown/sharing!

I guess there must've been a time when people consumed a lot of bananas for it to have become so commonly known though.

I don't see a reason why you should expect someone living in a civilised society to have slipped on a banana.
The chance of accidentally stepping on cow poop when hiking is far greater.

wouldn't say I did the splits, but it was like I tried to, and it wasn't excruciating, just more the shock of falling and then hurting yourself

Have you by any chance stepped on cow poop whilst hiking?

Tried to do the splits but... fell and hurt yourself instead? XD Man that sounds...painful, but entertaining to see.
