Welcome to Anthony's Apple

Ever wonder where the term Adam's Apple originated? You know, that knot every man has in his neck. Wonder no more my friends. Here at this web log you will learn many tidbits of wisdom, including that the Adam's Apple name stem's from the Garden of Eden story in the Bible's book of Genesis. As the story goes, the first man ever created, Adam, was seduced into evil by his wife Eve and Satan (in the guise of a sepent). Eve, as all other cunning women throughout history have also done since, threatened to withhold access to her own forbidden fruits if Adam would not agree to eat her apple.

Adam being the stone-cold dude he was, couldn't resist the temptation, so he held his nose and ate that damn apple for his prescious woman. God wasn't too happy when he found out about Adam performing such a freaky and sinful deed, so he decided to punish him and all of his generations of male progeny. God booted Adam and his lady friend Eve out of the Garden of Eden, and put a lump in Adam's throat that resembled an apple. All men, and only men, have that lump in our throats as a reminder of Adam's dastardly deed. Henceforth, the name Adam's Apple for that lump in your throat, dude.

In homage to that first dude and his weakness for the ladies, not unlike my own, I welcome you all to my blog Anthony's Apple. (Yes, ladies you are most welcome here too)
