I know the one you're thinking of:

'D' is for the many pies I baked you
'A' is for the apple of my eye
'D' is for the dish you ate the pie in
'D' is for de apple of my eye
'Y' because I love you

I fail to see what this has to do with the flu.

/You're welcome.

"Apples are genetically modified to be appealing to the eye and are covered in cosmetic wax, but hey, they have a fibrous skin which just might clean some of the nitrite-ridden processed meat particles clinging to the villi of your intestines. And that MIGHT just give you a 1% edge against colon cancer." ?

Or "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." ?

My grandma used to say the former. She was awesome at parties after a few beers.

Yeah, but apples don't grow during flu season. Why does Ben Franklin hate America?

An apple a day helps prevent a Orthomyxoviridae based infection which is capable of inducing pnumonia in the elderly and very young!

'A' is for the letter 'A'
'G' is for 'Gee'
'I' is for ... 'Imagine'
'N' is for 'Nice'
'E' is for 'Egad, I said "imagine" twice!'

Satan, called the Great Deceiver,
Gave Eve one to quell her fever
So don't forget to eat an apple
And solid be your morning crap'll

an apple a day keeps the doctor away,
but an onion a day keeps everyone away.

A doctor a day keeps the jim-jams away.

one cubic apple cures ten gloomy sentiments

war is apples
apples is strength
freedom is apples

apples good, two legs bad

Rule 42: all persons more than an apple tall must leave the courtroom

give me apples, or give me death

my only regret is that i have but one apple to give to my country

Luke, i am your apple

i get by with a little apple from my friends

ask not what your apple can do for you, but ask what you can do for your apple

brother, can you spare an apple

If a doctor eats an apple a day, will he have an existential crisis?

How do ya like them apples?
 
2008-11-06 09:20:50 AM  
How about...'


One piece of the fruit commonly known as the apple when masticated and taken internally has been shown in recent studies to have a beneficial effect on the human body's response and defense regarding the infectious virus referred to among the common folk as "The Flu".

I think it's catchy.

Consuming one apple per diem may prove effective in warding off the necessity of having a physician administer to you due to ill health is what my mom always said.

Ummm... Mr. Noonian Singh? I beg to differ with your actions.

An apple a day keeps a giant blob monster from eating everything it sees, but only if you team up with your mortal enemy, a ruthless terrorist organization determined to rule the world, to jointly deploy the apple.
