Fruit of the Tree of Life

Today's comic comes ripped from this week's Come, Follow Me lesson.*

The very idea that Nephi would refer to Honeycrisp or Red Delicious apples is, of course, ridiculous. Why Honeycrisp weren't first cultivated until 1974 and even Red Delicious are relatively new (1880). There was quite a bit of debate in my home regarding the variety of apple named in today's gag.

Personally, my favorite apple is the Pink Lady, while my daughter likes the Fuji. Ultimately, I settled on the favorite of my wife--the Honeycrisp--because her choice seems to match up with the general public.

The best tasting variety of apple is a manner of taste, while the apple on the other end of the spectrum is a fact: Red Delicious apples are the worst!

Job's Family History

Among all the other sufferings Job had to endure, he also had to deal with the constant mispronunciation of his name! Poor guy.

1-Up

The world of Mario is a strange one. Among all the oddities of that game, consider this: somehow it is a good idea to bang one's head on bricks hovering slightly over you. The Mario Bros. brains must be so scrambled by now.

Mary Poppins

If one is "practically perfect in every way" does she even bother with New Year resolutions?

Welcome to 2020! We made it through another year! This website is now 11-years-old! This blog has now been active for parts of three decades! How many explanation points can I use in one paragraph?!

If, with the New Year, you've resolved to better improve your Come, Follow Me instruction, then you really should consider subscribing to my newly renamed Come, Follow Me Activity Page Newsletter. Every Friday I email a new activity page that corresponds to the weekly Come, Follow Me lesson--think of it as a spoonful of sugar to help the lesson go down. This year's course of study is the Book of Mormon, so you can be assured that the activity pages are going to be a lot of fun!
