The size of our fruit
For many years Kate Murphy had run the fruit and vegetable stall in the town
market and she'd learned to have an answer for any situation.
So there she stood and eyed the big Texan who was poking around the stall.
'Hey, what are these?' he asked.
'Apples,' said Kate.
'Apples?' laughed the Yank. 'Why, in Texas we have apples twice that size!
And what are these?'
"Those are potatoes,' snapped Kate.
'Potatoes? Why at home our potatoes are twice as big at least,' sneered the
Texan. Just then he picked up a cauliflower, but before he could speak Kate said:
'If you're not buying sprouts, don't pick them up!'
