IVP - Strangely Dim - How You Like Them Apples

How You Like Them Apples

I was pretty sure that my Strangely Dim coblogger Lisa was sporting the biggest apple ever this morning; her plate runneth over, as they say. But unlike me, she's unsatisfied with anecdotal evidence. Her research turned up an apple harvested by Chisato Iwasaki, from his farm in Hirosaki City, Japan. You can see a picture here. Looks like a Red Delicious.

This leads to the inevitable followup question: Where might you find the world's smallest Red Delicious?






Wait for it . . .




Minneapolis! Har har snort.

Wow. (Are you sure you're not a dad? 'cause that's totally a dad joke.) (But it did make me smile.)

If you're going to make jokes like that, Dave, I'll stop sending you links!

But. To get back to the matter at hand (which you distracted us from), which is large apples--I have apparently been dreaming much too small. And am thinking of moving to Hirosaki City.
