How would you not notice if there was a razor in your apple?

Asked by MyNewtBoobs (19026points) July 14th, 2010

Around Halloween, you start hearing parents warning their kids about eating an apple with a razor inside it. Do people grow apples with razors in them? Or do they just shove them in the apple a hour before handing it out, and the apple magically heals itself and you can’t tell that someone has already cut into your apple?

I’ve not heard that one in years, but I’d guess that they have a technique of shoving them in, so as not to notice the entrance ‘wound’.

All it would take is a small piece sticking out to hurt someone.

I thought I had heard once that there had never been a reported case of this happening, but I checked Snopes and sure enough, it has!

Just cut the thing in six parts.

The one time it happened, they used a tiny, thin razor blade, not the big craft style. I believe I heard that it was the parents who did it.

The PARENTS did something like that! Wow.
