In the 1960s, lemons were considered rare, especially in the East Coast. Lemons were traded much like drugs – first you had to find a dealer in California, and then you had to find a mule to smuggle them to you. But they were sooooo worth it.
Just a squeeze of lemon on a steak (or even more stealth, vegetables) could cause a man to instantly propose to you. Because of this odd feature, lemons were banned in New Jersey for years.
Thanks to technology, scientists found the secret gene in lemons (the “Irrational Lemon Reaction Gene”) and were able to breed it out, so lemons were now considered safe and the bottom fell out of the contraband market. That’s why they’re available everywhere now. And aren’t we glad?
Sorry for the delay in posts folks, life got in the way…
