<Apple, sans Will--m James t-- -uller!>

ah.. thanks. I really do like Fiona.

Premium Chessgames Member
  BishopBerkeley: <SBC> Ms. Fiona Apple is delightfully talented, I agree :)

I wonder if Ms. Apple was as pleased as I at the strong performance of the freeware Chess program Fruit at the World Chess Championship in Iceland? The strong core strategies it employed earned it second place in the contest, ahead of former World Computer Champions Junior (Computer) and Shredder (Computer) .

Though relatively new, this program has the seeds of greatness, I believe. It does have to develop a stronger ability to prevent its opponents from peeling away its Pawn defenses though. But that is the only respect in which it looks a little green.

I wonder, if Ms. Fiona were to marry Tim Krabbe , would she become "Fiona Krabbe-Apple"? Oh, I guess the maiden name comes first, doesn't it? Darn! That's not very funny at all. Hmmm. Same problem with Alexander Goldin .

Well, if she could travel through time and unite with Johannes Zukertort , she would be Fiona Apple-Zukertort!

Ah, but what is the ideal recipe for romance in these complicated times?? *Sigh*

with sincerest apologies...

There once was a singing sensation
whose tasty, sweet voice was elation.
Her voice was so cute
like the everyday fruit
from which came her own apple-ation.

Premium Chessgames Member
  BishopBerkeley: Yay Sarah!!!! :)

High apple-auz for your apropos applimerick!

No apple-ogy needed!!

[For our own Sarah Beth]:

A lass with attitude
tends not to lassitude!

(: ♗ Bishop Berkeley ♗ :)

P.S. I had heard a rumor that there was an attempt to get Ms. Apple to tour with Moby Grape ( ) and Bananarama ( ), with funding provided by The Mellon Foundation ( ), but I haven't seen any solid evidence that this cornucopia of talent is coming together.

But then again, to quote Warren Buffett, "I never comment on rumors, especially ones that I start."

A little known fact I just invented reminds us that before going solo, Fiona used to sing with her sister, Leona. They billed themselves as the "Singing Pair of Apples"... or "Pear of Apples," I forget. Anyway, Leona was known for her saucey stage presence, while Fiona was considered just a little tart. Their mother, Ryona Apple (née Macintosh), who had also been a singer in her prime, claimed that apples never fall far from the tree, whatever that means.

"...while Fiona was considered just a little tart."
she'll do it for two greens was what i heard

  samvega: <SBC> Oops. I just realized something: just because I think you're funny, doesn't mean that you think that I'm funny too. So if the above remark doesn't fall into the category of "things that SBC thinks are funny" then just ignore it. Or reply to it scathingly, which I would actually prefer.

  BishopBerkeley: <SBC> Your account makes me wonder whether Ms. Apple might not be the "Miss American Pie" to whom Don McClean bade farewell?! (The fact that she may not have been born when the song was written is a mere technicality: the song has long been believed by some to be prophetic.)

Even so, I recall reading an interview with Mr. McClean once in which he was asked by a seemingly starry-eyed admirer, "Just what DO the lyrics to 'American Pie' mean?!"

To which (as I recall) he replied, "They mean I don't have to work another day in my life if I don't want to!"

It's good to know that the esoteric meaning of such a song can extend not only into the aesthetic and mystical spheres, but also the economic!

<samvega> Indeed, there's nothing like a beautiful tart to make your day:

  samvega: Y'know, 'til now I never really THOUGHT about the lyrics to that song. I don't suppose it's a reference to the movie? No... too obvious.

Anyway thanks Bish, that link really did make my day, in a strange way that I can't explain.

<reply to it scathingly ... or better yet: witheringly>

And end up with my head, like lettuce, on Sam's Vega-table?


hmmm... even my vegetative humor is a bit corny.

Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: This entire bushel of apple jokes is so corny to the core, we should run this by an appellate judge. Plus, we musn't forget the Pride of New Orleans = Apple-onia.

<I wonder if Ms. Apple was as pleased as I at the strong performance of the freeware Chess program Fruit at the World Chess Championship in Iceland?> The dreams of the freeware community came to fruition with this applecation.

Bye the bye, I've always felt a little uneasy around clergy, but you're all right, BishB. Just between the two of us, have you ever performed an exorcism?

<SBC> In much the same way that some men appreciate Playboy for its insightful articles, I very much enjoyed the girl pictures on your chess history site. Especially the beatific one of Chiburdanidze... I promise though that I will attempt the "brainy stuff" some day.

  Calli: I met Paul Morphy at my cousin's office, and said to him, "Morphy, can you give Fuller the odds of a Rook?". "No!" promptly said Fuller, but Morphy, being a modest little fellow, said nothing. I pressed him, when he admitted that he might probably beat Fuller some of the games at that odds. - George Fuller, New York Clipper, 17 April 1869.
