Banana Butt

Actual quote from actual sibling argument:
"We can't be fifty percent banana and ninety-eight percent monkey! Fifty plus ninety-eight doesn't equal one-hundred, banana butt!
(This was the culmination of a slightly confused argument about the amount of DNA humans share with other organisms, along with some fundamental misconceptions about the nature of percentile mathematics.)

    Do we share any genes with bananas?

    How about monkeys -- do they share genes with bananas?

    Interesting. If banana genes are included in the monkey's double helix, then monkeys can be both 40% banana and 98% monkey.
