Question for you. How well do you know your mom? Your dad?
Have you ever suspected that one of them may have been a banana?
It sounds crazy, but according to GetScience.com, humans share around 60% of our DNA with bananas.
Further complicating matters is that we also share 60% of our DNA with fruit flies.
Now, perhaps you didn't take a stats class in college? But luckily for you, I did, so let me interpret these results quickly.
Essentially, what we're saying here is that almost certainly one of your parents was a banana. And the other one was a fruit fly. Which completely explains the attraction they had for each other.
So what does that make you? You are the product of a fruit fly eating a banana. That product would be called fruit fly feces.
So technically, according to the best science we have to date, you and I (but mainly you) are nothing more than the poop of a fruit fly.
How does that feel? Are you feeling a bit less self-important now?
