The original Chiquita Banana commercial produced by Disney in the 1940s pretty much sums up everything I know about bananas: they taste best when the skin has brown flecks, they go well in pie, and you shouldn't put them in the refrigerator. New things that I learned are that male bananas are normal sized and naked while female bananas are human sized, wear slinky skirts, and sing catchy educational songs about how to eat their kin. Watch the video after the jump.
