    FRUIT WARS: Apples -v- Oranges

    Reviving/stealing one of Hustler's antics

    I invite you to post your own WARS polls pitting 2 items for profound pondering. After some number of these have ran their course, we'll have a War of WARS Tournament and answer those questions that have plagued humanity ever since we crawled out of the swamp.

    Maybe also we can get The Admins on-board with the notion that: if an actual member should win the WoWARS then they are entitled to their own Signature Emoticon???

    Apples are far superior to Oranges because you can eat one without getting sticky and smelling of Citrus Oil all day. Apples also grow in places other than overcrowded semitropical climes.

    Apple Pie
    Newton's Apple
    Apple Computer
    Adam's Apple
    Apple of my Eye

    Crap, It seems I made the poll anonymous. If a mod could change the setting, that would be nice.

    Bananas.

    Apples are lame. Most of them aren't even worth the effort to eat given the pain and sulphur laden belches that result. If I eat a couple apples, I could strip the paint off a Buick with my belches. I could melt the chrome off a hubcap. One whiff of my apple belly belches would make a potato rip it's eyes out.
    I'm suspicious of people who say they'll die for a flag but won't wear a mask for their neighbor.

    Apples; but only if they've been stored using 'smartfresh'. Can't stand apples that aren't crisp.

    Oranges are also OK but only if they're fresh and not imported.

    I'm voting for oranges. Apples are boring. Oranges pretty much taste good right off the tree. For an apple to become something most people would really want to put in their mouth you'd have to combine it with sugar (a tropical plant) and then transform it further through baking into a classic American food which works for dessert, or even for breakfast if you want to eat like a Vermonter. It's classic, yes. It's delicious, yes. But you might as well call it sugar, cinnamon and apple pie if you want to give credit to the real stars in the performance.

    OR - I tried to edit the poll to make voter names visible but that does not seem to be an option now. It looks as though it is not tracking the information of who voted for what at this point. We could remove the poll (and records of who has already voted) and make a new one if you would like.

    David Wong, regarding Chicago
    Six centuries ago, the pre-Colombian natives who settled here named this region with a word which in their language means "the Mouth of Shadow". Later, the Iroquois who showed up and inexplicably slaughtered every man, woman and child renamed it "Seriously, Fuck that Place". When French explorer Jacques Marquette passed through the area he marked his map with a drawing of a brownish blob emerging from between the Devil's buttocks.

    Polly, your apples are lazy. They're the person on their team who needs others to work hard to make them not suck. Without sugar and cinnamon carrying them like a lunch in a brown paper sack, the apples would be homeless.

    Lighten up! Of all the people, I thought you would understand. The Hoff may be a hero at your side of the pond, but he's also a regular butt of jokes in (most of) the Old World. – I'm ignoring the not-so-subtle passive-aggressive "You're Austrian, hence you must be a Nazi" undertone for now.

    – Oh, and oranges.
