A Fruit By Any Other Name

A ripe orange is orange.
A green orange is not orange.
A single nut is sane.
More than one nut is nuts.
One pear is not a pair.
Two pears are a pair of pears.
A grapefruit is not a grape.
But it is a fruit.
A grape is a fruit.
But it is not a grapefruit.
An apple is a fruit.
Unless it's a computer.

----Warning! It's about to get worse!------

You can have a date,
and still be alone.
The used car salesman sold me a lemon.
I was ripe for the picking.
I paid for the banana with three dimes and a nickel.
I call it "the fruit of my coins."

A pineapple is not an apple
And doesn't have any pine needles
But still hurts your butt if you sit on it.

What is a vampire's favorite fruit?
A necktarine!

*ba dum bum*

I guess the punchline could also be "blood orange" but whatever.

If you found the peeling unappealing you could pare it from the pears. Still you would not have a pair. Ain't that nuts?

Glad you're feeling fruity, you must be getting better!
