Maybe it wasn't an Apple! Maybe it was an Olive...

The Olive Garden


God created the earth and in his spare time, molded all of earth’s animals. He took a hundred pounds of clay and made a she.  Calling her Eve, it was apparent that she was not fulfilled and prone to fits on lonesomeness and lack of kindness to her animal friends.


One day while she napped under the worlds first oak tree, God took one pound of clay from eve and placed it on the groin of a he that was created to fill Eve’s day with craziness and child like folly. He would be named Adam.


God told Eve and Adam that they could part take of anything on earth except the fruit of the Olive Tree in the Olive Garden. The inquisitive nature of he’s is surpassed only by the inquisitive nature of She’s. 


Despite Gods warning to stay out of the Olive Garden, Eve and Adam were drawn to its gates. Having breached the Garden gates they gazed upon the fruit of the Olive Tree.


Not liking the smell or the color of the olives they left the Olive Garden dropping the fruit on the ground outside. Years later the dropped fruit grew into a beautiful dark green leaf plant that produced the worlds original organic Olives.


Convincing themselves that tasting these ugly bad smelling fruit would be free of the warning God had issued them, they tasted of the Olives and at once Adam not only discovered his Adam’s Olive but came to the realization the he didn’t have any clothes on and immediately covered his groin with his hands. Having the same realization Eve just barely had enough hands.


The moral of the Olive Garden Story is that we as She’s and He’s know when we do something right and we sure as hell know when we do something WRONG!!!! We know from birth the difference between right and wrong and that, “ an Olive by any other name is still an Olive.”
