it's China vs. the banana

China, the second largest economy in the world, is facing down a potential erosion of power and prestige. The enemy, however, is not as wily or complex or devious as capitalism. Instead, this storied land is squaring off against ... wait for it ... the curvaceous comestible known as the banana.
Chinese live-streaming services have banned people filming themselves eating bananas in a "seductive" fashion....
"How do they decide what's provocative when eating a banana?" one person asks. Another wonders: "Can male live-streamers still eat them?"
And plenty think people will be able to get around the banana ban: "They will all start eating cucumbers, and if that's no good, yams," one user says.


  1. Is it ok if they don't peel it first?

    Got a little fatigued today with the cough, and felt that piano music is slightly less crude than rhetoria and bananas.
