Because it’s too tempting.
You need to add “Gluten Free”.
That’s what caused all that trouble in Eden.
The first guy didn’t charge for the apples.
“They’re still sore about the last time.”
Well … there is this story about a snake in a garden with a fruit tree.
… it was like paradise … and as the story goes … well … no more garden, no more paradise, and the snake get blamed (takes the fall) …
… and, oh … supposedly …. snakes used to have legs.
No, but, fangs for the offer…
I’ve always wondered where people got the idea it was an apple.
Biblical prejudices, I guess.
Being organic, one might suspect the apples are “wormy.”
Snakes just can’t fight the stereotype. They need to develop a really colorful publicity campaign. Maybe a movie where they only eat the bad guy. Oh – Right. Been done. Didn’t improve their image.
Maybe they are afraid of you snake.
Because organic usually cost more than regular?
One word there fang face. “Eden”
The Bible mentions the “forbidden fruit” but never specifically points out that it is an apple. But people have been accepting that it is an apple for centuries even after reading the actual text.
A talking snake and some questionable apples sound like the beginning of a fairytale.
“I don’t get it…I tell everyone the apples are sinfully delicious, and they just run away…”
Sorry, no “organic” for me. Yesterday I saw organic cucumbers @ $4.98 each, I hope they all rot on the shelf, don’t reward greed.
A very early example of politics interfering with the free market. You pi***ed the big guy off and he set the media on you.
And you know that how?
Apples with fang holes in them? Other than the Witch-Queen from Snow White, who’d want them?
You make one bad deal and it haunts you for the rest of your life…….
Where does a serpent or anyone grow apples on barren lava covered landscape?
They bought into religious agitprop.
Maybe too many down votes on social media?
Nate the Snake??
Because they don’t know you from Adam?
I’d buy them. Eden? It’s a bit late to be worrying about that.
Because of stupid religious myths.
Needs a stamp. Picked from the Garden of Eden.
Only sell to naked ladies named EVE!
Boa: means good in Portuguese. Constrictor: self explanatory. Boa constrictor: Good squeeze.
In modern marketing terms, the problem is called branding.
Adds credence that personal appearance is important.
They do look tempting.
I just noticed there’s no “license this comic” button which for other strips takes me to a site where I can search the text of previous comics; I’m looking for the one where BC? asks for a sign from God, gets a bunch of natural phenomena plus the stone rolling away from the tomb, and gives up: “all I get are these interruptions!”
The word is out, the people here wear clothes.
Fangs for the memory…..
