It is time

It's time we finish this. The age-old question needs answering.



I voted apples. How about you?

Question Orange you glad you voted?

What the--? I'm the ONLY one here who voted for oranges?!?

So just what are we supposed to do on a prolonged sea voyage--watch our teeth fall out from scurvy?

Meh. Go suck apples, the lot of ye!

The Case for Oranges

The orange, when compared to the apple, is almost perfectly round. Its skin is dimpled for easy grip, and is softer than the hard, unyielding waxiness of apple skin. Granted, there is more effort involved in peeling an orange before eating it--but at least you don't wind up eating the rind! Who want's to eat the peel anyway? The flesh of an orange is higher--as I have previously mentioned--in vitamin C, and it comes handily segmented so you can share some of your delicious citrus treat with friends, without undue mess. In closing, I would point out that the state of Florida, which is famous for producing oranges, is also the repeated target of many disastrous hurricanes. If God's that pissed off at Florida for growing them, there must be something sinfully good about the humble orange...

*Ahem!*

Yes, hurricanes and whatnot because oranges are sinfully good, lets forget the whole Adam and Eve thing when it comes to the apple.

Yeah I have a hard time deciding without specifying types of fruit, I mean if it was Granny Smith Apples vs. Clemetine Oranges I don't think I could choose.


Just because people think what I say don't make sense, doesn't mean I don't like popsicles.

Too damn easy. Give us a challenge.
What makes you think we would ever stoop so low to compare eating fruit with erotic activity, anyway?

Besides, what could we ever do with, for instance, the image of you wrapping your lips around a nice, tart, juicy, ripe Granny, your teeth pressing gently but insistingly into the oh so smooth skin, seeking the penetrate into the tender waiting flesh below... or the thought of Clementines sweet, sweet juices gushing forth from between your probing fingers peeling the skin back from the wet inside, until you are left with fluid running off your chin.

See,.. there's just really nowhere you can go from there.

I've always been partial to Ginger Gold apples. They only come around for a few months in late summer, but they're so crisp and delicious: it's worth the wait.

apples are less messy and easier to get into as you don't have to peel.

I'm probably the opposite to that - I prefer when they're green and mean.

Also, what orange are we talking about here? The really big ones that are impossible to get into and spray painful orange acid into your eye? Or the small and cute oranges that are easy to peel, have no pips and are really juicy?

That's just a tasty (if not powerful painful) treat for later.

We have a nice tree with "peasgood" apples outside.
They are delicious, and one of the biggest apples in the world.

I would say the whole *cox* joke was one we all thoroughly laughed at in private but were inclined to leave alone because there are CHILDREN aplenty in this forum. That sort of thing is better suited to Aresen, or XWA...

See what happens to people when they choose the apple? Neil, you were so right.

Hey, did you know that there's more vitamin C in a single blueberry than in an entire orange?

Solution: blueberry wins.

It all depends on what your definition of "kid" is (please, lets not kid ourselves. Most 7 year olds know more sexual slang terms than 87 year olds. Lets not be prejudice ).

Children = under 18.



There is much more vitamin C in a polar bear's liver than a blueberry, Gabez. Polar bear eats blueberry.

Actually, it's vitamin A, and it's got that in such a high concentration that if you eat the liver you will die. In fact, I heard that as little as one mouthful will be kill you, but I'm not sure as to the specifics.
