banana or bannanna

Does one unpeel a banana or peel a banana? I like to say unpeel even though it’s gramatically incorrect.

And I always want to add double “n”s when spelling banana. Bannana or bananna.

thanks to Sally A. Goldman over at the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis for the banana photo. There’s a bunch of hi-res photos of bananas in index form.

Or if you prefer hi-res images of a blue scrunge, cardboard box, coke can, dirty work gloves, green tea box, so on and so on, then head over here and download all the hi-res photos you like!

Can you de-peel a banana?

I’ve seen Banana spelled Bannana only recently and thought it was an error, but now I see that it was intentional.

For Mark, I think you can de peel da bannana.

B the b, I’ve been having the “pre” discussion with a friend. “Pre shredded” for example. Wouldn’t that be the product before it was shredded?
