Something horrible happened at the office where my wife works yesterday. A bananacide. She and a co-worker stumbled upon a banana that had been brutally murdered.
The police arrested an apple that was seen arguing with the banana earlier that morning. It was brought in for questioning and is still in custody. The apple has a record but no convictions.
A witness who wishes to remain anonymous (though it’s suspected to be the box of imitation Froot Loops), told authorities that in the heat of the argument the banana told the apple it was “rotten to the core.” The apple community considers this phrase a racial slur. The apple became enraged and that is when it allegedly attacked and killed the banana.
The other apples feel the suspect was unjustly accused. They have been rioting in the kitchen to protest. Some of the apples aren’t concerned with justice and are simply using this incident as an opportunity to loot. They’ve been stealing microwaves, toaster ovens and condiments.
All of this carnage over an apple that has a reputation for causing trouble in the fruit basket. Which proves the old adage is true. One bad apple does indeed spoil the bunch.
