Mmmm. Insipid, mealy apples. Along with tough, dry, thick skinned oranges, I think they're responsible for Americans thinking fruit is gross.
The reason Red Delicious apples are so awful is that the pigment that makes them bright red is also bitter and distasteful.
"'Alright, butter was a bad example"... classicmisspelled but classic'"
Actually, "all right" and "alright" are both perfectly correct.
I should also mention how much I love these comics!
i imagine Scott saying "if you are talking about steve jobs apples, i want one"
> 'All right' is the correct spelling. 'Alright' is non-standard usage, slang, incorrect.
And we certainly can't have colloqialisms sneaking their way into our dialog. The horror.
"My uncle was poisoned by a Red Delicious. I haven't been able to come near one since."
Well, I hope that apple is in prison where it belongs.
RED DELICIOUS I HATE RED DELICIOUS. Although thank you, Dave, for explaining why. Maybe the apples just have a bad rap. Maybe someday I'll go back to Washington State and have a fresh one and see what I think. (I love apples in general, so probably I'd like it.)
