Apple pear radish salad, what shape are you?


  A blonde was passing a fruit stand when she suddenly realized how hungry she was. "Give me a pear, please." said the bouncy blonde. "That will be fifty cents." said the clerk. She ate the pear, but was still hungry, so she ordered another. Still hungry after the second pear, she ordered an apple. After eating the apple she was finally full and wanted a drink, but found that she didn't have enough money left. "Darn it!" she said to herself, "If I had ordered the apple first I would still ...
