Amos Yee, the 16-year-old Singapore boy who posted an online rant about Christianity and made an offensive video about the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew, was seen being led away in handcuffs following a pre-trial conference today.
He was caught on camera smiling while enjoying a banana:
Yes, a banana.
Let’s not read too deep into Amos Yee and his banana antics.
He did make me wonder though – is is possible to look cool on camera eating a banana?
Let’s look at how some famous personalities fare:
1. Dani Alves
Goofy Banana Score: -10/10
Barcelona FC defender Dani Alves picked up and ate a banana thrown at him by racist haters during a football match. After the incident, the Brazilian international received support from Premier League players including Sergio Aguero, David Luiz, Oscar, Willian, Nacer Chadli and Moussa Dembele. He did it to make a statement and it was strong and impactful.
2. Harry Styles, One Direction
Goofy Banana Score: 5/10
Somehow, Harry looks really angry when he is eating this banana. He still looks quite macho though.
3. Michelle Wie
Goofy Banana Score: 8/10
Okay this is kind of funny. She has to learn from the next celebrity on how to do it tastefully.
4. Maria Sharapova
Goofy Banana Score: 0/10
Only Maria Sharapova can make eating a banana looks so beautiful.
5. Miley Cyrus
Goofy Banana Score: 10/10
Okay Miley Cyrus seems to have gotten it wrong. You are suppose to EAT the banana, not dress up as one and grind another.
Which celebrity do you like best eating a banana?
