Did you ever wonder why bananas are curved, instead of straight like a carrot or round like an orange? Some say it’s because it’s easier for pretending to use as a phone. Others believe it’s nature’s comma, but that’s just because people are weird sometimes and say things that make no sense. Plush toy description-writers, especially. Scientists have another explanation, one backed by science. Bananas grow upside down and they bend toward the sun. So take home 10 inches of yellow yearning!
