Today is also Johnny Appleseed day, but I bet that didn't even cross your mind...did it? You sit around and just cavalierly eat your apples and applesauce, and drink your apple brandy, and pay no attention that some crazy person walked around your backyard planting those for you to enjoy. You really gotta check your priorities, it's disgusting. Bavarian meat packer?, Come on!
