Fruit Blog-Sugar Apples

It's been a long and twisting road since Apples 1 and frankly much of it has been sour.  So it's nice to see in our penultimate episode a sweet respite before next episode's shocking conclusion. Out of the  steamy Amazon comes the sugar apple, a hairy, nubbly orb resembling a puppet dinosaur's testicle that tickles the fruit fly's taste buds and finally ends the recent run of bad fruit. Yes, much of  the produce throughout the series has been terrible. Yes, some of it even made people sick. But to go from that to saying that Fruit Blog has been a failure would be a grievous error. Fruit Blog was about more than fruit.  It was about re-birth and the sharing of knowledge, civic activism and drunken fellowship and above all, jeggings. But we jump ahead of ourselves. Tonight is not the end. Just the day before. Enjoy yourself with a sugar apple.  You've earned the calories and soon you will need them.

Fruit Blog-Tiny Bananas

Tiny Bananas is the shortest episode of Fruit Blog to date, consisting of a mere seventy seven seconds of sheer fruit fun. A virtual haiku celebrating that feeling you get when you bite into an unripe banana.  So no matter how busy your day might be fruit flies there is no excuse for not catching up to what's going on in the world of tiny bananas. Press play and let the fruit gang surround you with their special brand of addled glee. It's just that easy.

Fruit Blog - POMEGRANATES 2.

Well it finally happened. The first mis-step in Fruit Blog history. It turns out that the last episode 'Mangos' should actually not have run when it did. It should actually have been the episode I am introducing now but some idiot in scheduling, whose head shall obviously roll, decided to release it before Pomegranates 2. Pomegranates was actually part one of a two part series but because some other idiot in labeling forgot to put a One after Pomegranates on the master tape the hapless scheduler just assumed that it was a stand alone episode and went with 'Mangos.' The only bright spot in this humiliating fiasco is that Mangos was a stand alone episode so at least we will be spared any further embarrassment. So here it is, better late than never, 'Pomegranates 2. '
