-- If money grows on trees, how come all we get are a bunch of rotten apple investment certificates?

-- Let me get this straight, if I bite into that apple, I can play “Devil’s Advocate” for a day?

-- I’m tired of being “touched by an angel”, can we try something spooky for a change?

-- If I’d wanted to play “snakes and ladders”, I’d have married a social-climbing serpent!

-- Wow, it’s another episode of "Desperate Housewives in Paradise" -- do you mind if I sit down and watch?

-- Okay honeybun, where’d you put my “Get Out of Jail Free Card” anyway?

-- Look at it this way, if God had wanted me to bite into that apple, he wouldn’t have given me dentures!

-- I don’t polish apples for anyone, and that includes you!

-- Why don’t you put that apple on your head, while I find my plucky bow and trusty arrow.

-- What could be more rewarding than biting a few biscuits, dust bunnies, or speeding bullets?

-- Perhaps you could read one more chapter from my favorite pillow book, "The Boo Hoo Bible: The Neo American Church Catechism" by Art Kleps -- before we retire forrepparttar night.

-- Listen, being President of a meat-eating country means you don't have to eat broccoli, sprouts or apples for that matter!
