News – “British Talk Show Host Consults ‘Psychic Banana’ to Predict Royal Baby’s Gender”

munchies.vice.com I’m sorry to add to the trash heap of royal baby coverage, but it must be done. On Monday morning, Holly Willoughby, host of British channel ITV’s talk show This Morning, sliced into a “psychic banana” in anticipation of the royal tot’s birth.

She wanted to know: Would Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William’s third child be a boy? So Willoughby consulted her trusted psychic banana. She cut off the tip of the fruit and detected a faint, vague Y shape, from which she surmised the answer was “yes, this child will be a boy.” If she were to find a dot, the answer would’ve been no.

I know what you’re thinking: Haha, um… what the fuck? Let me explain.

This isn’t the psychic banana’s first rodeo; Willoughby consults this clairvoyant fruit pretty often! She’s been using it for years, and seems aware of its utter silliness. I guess you could call the concept of the psychic banana the distant cousin of the gender reveal, something that should be banned wholesale, full stop, no questions asked.

I’ve gotta say, though, that after watching three videos of Willoughby slice through the little black nubs of bananas in the hopes of forecasting the future, I find the concept somewhat endearing. I’m part of the problem!


I know what you’re thinking: Haha, um… what the fuck? Let me explain.

I read the article and this is still my exact thought process…this is just high level scamming at play, I respect it.
