“Originality is nothing but judicious imitation.
The most original writers borrowed one from another.”
They said Original Sin was a hand-me-down.
Seems like Eve was very hungry in the Garden of Eden…
She thought she had signed up for the Garden of Eating…She was not a Vegan or a Vegetarian – she was a very hungry carnivore.
The infamous Slithery Snake came along and – long story short: there was a ruby red, organic, Honey Crisp Apple dangling before her and she bit.
Bam! Lightening and thunder! And, Eve may have raised a little cane…
(oddly, enough another one was in her future.)
And so it came to be – All of Eve’s children and grandchildren and all God’s chillins would-be born with Original Sin.
All because of an apple.
And, that, children, is where the phrase,
“How do you like them apples?” came about.
