Long before motorboats and doughnuts were invented, the world
was bothered by the apple. As the story goes, Adam and Eve partook
of the forbidden fruit and suiferedieternal damnation-fatal applel
Henceforth, all who tasted of the never-to-be-eaten green apple
doubled up and became twinsl This was their punishment, and as
a result, the rest of the world suffered.
People hesitated to speak to all carbon copies for fear they were
addressing the wrong party. Whenever the dittos went shopping and
waited on lines, one was refused by an icy, haunting voice-"only one
to a customer." The good citizens of the town were forced into con-
fessing that they had just a "wee snort" whenever the double editions
crawled by. The druggist prescribed aspirins and seltzers, but people
still saw double, and the druggist, failing to mollify the situation, was
exiled. Alas, the factory that supplied the aspirins received no orders
and had to close down. The workers were jobless and had no buying
power. Qther workers, because of this, were forced into oblivion. The
town was becoming cadaverous. lVIultiply this drastic situation by
thousands and what have you - a hopeless merry-go-round of con-
fusion, strife, and depression.
Then, out of the troubled sky, came a Hash of hope in the form of
Noah VVebster. Taking his powerful pen into hand, he inserted the
word "twin" into his dictionary. He, wise and understanding, knew
that some children would nibble on the sour apple, and double up.
Therefore, wishing to redeem them he interpolated his wide-read text
"twin-one of two persons or things related by ties of birthfl
He never mentioned their sin, and, as a result, the ever-grateful,
ever-increasing army erected a monument for the man who provided
a refuge for them, who saved them from the flood of bewilderment.
Thus it was that Noah's Ark came into existence.
And now, centuries later, the world thrives happily, and has grown
to love and accept twins-so much, in fact, that a certain Johnny
Appleseed planted apple seeds in the hope of cultivating this one-time
destructive apple. So the story goes. . . fShades of Gemini, what liesl J”
