How attractive are these bananas? We’re not sure. All we know is that each and every one of these bananas is more attractive than the entire Class of 2018 put together. Each of these fleshy, flaxen fruits had its own unique aesthetic and each of those aesthetics was a thousand times more interesting and appealing to the eye than any we could find in this year’s freshman class.
This listicle is meant to add to the beauty in this world, so slowly peruse the slideshow, savoring each image the same way you savor plantains from Caribbean Bar in Sharples. If you’re a freshman, perhaps you could use this time to reflect on ways to improve your appearance. If you’re an upperclassman, we encourage you to ogle these bananas and keep them in mind the next time you have a group project (after all, if you have to have a dead-weight group member, they might as well be an incredibly good-looking banana).
To keep things interesting, we gave each of these bananas a qualitative Potassium Score. Leave notes in the comments if you agree or disagree. K? K.
