What do two apples keep away?

Asked by jfos (7362points) February 23rd, 2010

I’m sure that most of us have heard the expression “An apple a day keeps the doctor away,” but what I want to know is: What do two apples keep away?

Also, do you have any other related theories, i.e., “if you eat X then you can avoid Y”?

Dunno but they do wonders for your core strength.

A glass of milk is good, two is better.

I guess it works better in French since it rhymes.

Un verre de lait c’est bien, mais deux c’est mieux.

Also two apples keep Symbeline away from you when she’s being all weird.

Fell free to throw fruit at me, or just stare, whichever.

If you eat salads, you can avoid metamucil. Maybe the second apple is for your friend because you care abot them?

@ParaParaYukiko I guess if you frew ‘em at two doctors it would keep them away.

The doctor and a dentist? I remember hearing apples are good for your teeth, in that they clean off some of the plaque or something like that.

One keeps away the doctor. The other keeps away the lawyer that hunts doctors.

Two apples might keep away constipation and that would be a good thing I suppose.

Two doctors.

If you eat carrots, your vision improves. This is obviously true; have you ever seen a rabbit wearing glasses?

@janbb Tradition says that those were apples, but the actual text doesn’t specify.

@janbb and then you get in real bad trouble for sneaking back in!

janbb's avatar

@Yetanotheruser Sounds like fun!

Strauss's avatar

@janbb Whether they’re apples or not…

@erichw1504 I should clarify; have you ever seen a rabbit wearing vision correcting glasses?
