Either-Or Post! Bananas, Tiger versus Hrithik, Punjabi Versus Bombay Rap

Mostly I want your bananas answers. This is a hot debate in my office right now and I feel very strongly about my personal answer.

Tiger versus Hrithik: Who is the better dancer right now today? (no fair giving a “each good in their own way” answer!)

I say Hrithik! Dancing isn’t about athletic ability, it is about grace and moving to the music. When Hrithik dances, even without music, I am fascinated watching the pure elegance of how he moves.

And when I was trying to pull screenshorts of “Jai Jai Shiv Shanker”, I slowed the song down to half speed and it became really REALLY obvious that Hrithik was bang on the beat in every move and Tiger was a half second ahead or behind every time.

Punjabi versus Bombay rap: which do you like better?

I’ve been on a rap kick, because it’s cold and dark and I need the shot of energy. After listening and listening, I have to admit that I still like Yo Yo better than Divine. He’s songs are just catchier! And yes, I am aware this makes me an inferior person.

Bananas: Do you open from the top or the bottom?

I care DEEPLY about this question!!!! I open from the top, where the handle is, like a normal person. All my co-workers open from the bottom like FREAKS.

  1. I enjoy watching Hrithik dancing more than Tiger. Tiger has a huge amount of talent but no restraint, he’s constantly jumping around like a methed out bunny while Hrithik focuses on being precise but also looking at ease and knowing how to compose his facial expressions and deliver a fully rounded performance. So I guess that translates into being a better dancer. I think Tiger can be abused into doing better, though. His best acting performance was in War and apparently it’s because Hrithik and Annand treated him like crap so let’s hope he comes in for more beatdowns and improves his craft.

    I used to prefer Punjabi hip hop but it’s gotten very repetitive lately, like the AIB parody. And I LOVE Divine’s videos, I love that he’s proud of his community and showing us what it’s like to live there. One of the reasons I couldn’t get into Gully Boy is because I’d seen the real person and community and the movie just didn’t nail it for me.

    I can’t with bottom opening bananas, what is that even?

    • Yes! Banana WEIRDOS!!!! They come with a built in “open here” tab, given by God. Why don’t you want to eat as God designed you to eat things?

      I find my tolerance for Punjabi rap is far higher when I listen to the non-movie non-song video versions. They really do build the songs for bouncing bottoms and so on in the films. The nice long 6 minute versions are so much better.

      Watching the War songs, I kept thinking that what Tiger needs is to go back to the basics, have some dance teacher standing over him saying “1,2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3, 4” until he learns how to keep a beat. All the jumping around in the world won’t help if you can’t do that.

  2. I open from the top but I acknowledge the logistic superiority of opening from the bottom–it is actually easier that way, and that’s how non-human primates open them. I just didn’t learn about it soon enough in life to adopt the habit–I’m stuck in my top opening ways.

    Hrithik or Tiger: not enough evidence for comparison because I don’t particularly like to watch either of them.


    • I will choose to think of it as “opening bananas from the top is what separates Man from Beast” and be very proud of my sophisticated civilized ways.

  3. Comparing Hrithik to Tiger is like comparing Madhuri to Jacqueline! There is no contest. Hrithik is a better dancer! Hrithik is fluid, graceful, and full of expression. Tiger just bounces and flails his limbs.

    I hate to admit this, but I like Punjabi rap more too. I can sing along with it, it’s catchy, and it makes for great running music!

    And, obviously you should open a banana from the top! Until I saw this post I didn’t even realize there are humans who even thought to open a banana from the bottom!

    • I’m glad to know I’m not the only one seduced by the Punjabi sound! It’s just the same 5 words repeated over and over again, perfect for singing along. The Bombay stuff, it’s all fancy with lots and lots of words and far harder to follow.

      Thank goodness the DCIB community is all on one side in the controversial banana debate.

  4. `
    Bananas from the top, even if you end up smooshing the top inch trying to get it started. Although, I now completely peel the banana before eating rather than using the skin as a holder. Why? I don’t know. And, I’m not so sure about Curious George’s technique:

    Add this to the equation — when bananas are growing, what we call the “top” is actually lower than the “bottom.”


    But the real debate — toilet paper roll unrolling over the top or up from the bottom?
