Apples and Apples

Picture from Just Creative Design

"When we lose the right to be different, we lose the privilege to be free. " --Charles Evans Hughes

"Its like apples and oranges."

"More like Apples and apples. Comparing apples to oranges is like comparing humans to apes. They're both fruits, we're both mammals, and that's where the similarity ends. But, when you compare, say, a green apple to a red one, that's more like comparing people to people."

"So, which one of us is the green apple and wich one of us is the red one."

"Oh, YOU are definitely the red one. You're all bright and fiery and everyone knows you. I'm like the green one. Some people don't even know there are green apples!"

"So, what is our baby going to be? A fuji?"

"Think of what would happen if you took one green apple and one red one and cut them down the middle. Then you took a staple gun and stapled one green half to one red half. That would be our child."

"Oh, great, I'm giving birth to Frankenapple!"
