It's Not That Big
They're Small But Taste of Liquorice!
Now the snake was the most cunning animal that the Lord God had made. The snake asked the woman, “Did God really tell you not to eat fruit from any tree in the garden?”
“We may eat the fruit of any tree in the garden,” the woman answered, “except the tree in the middle of it. God told us not to eat the fruit of that tree or even touch it; if we do, we will die.”
The "tree" is defined as the tree "of the knowledge of good and evil".
So the temptation is to try evil and see how sweet it tastes. Risky or what?
Thus it is unwise to treat "The Devil", whoever or whatever he/it might be, as a joke!
By the way, it was never specified as an apple - the word is simply and generically "fruit".
Or maybe it is a clever marketing ploy to get the business talked up around the local intelligentsia in the pub?
