An orchard, and a box of apples on the ground labelled "‮C.RIGAUD‬‭"

These apples have no nutritional value. Why?

  • $\begingroup$ @paste Okay, technically yes, but I mean what the picture represents. (I suppose that's a valid answer though.) $\endgroup$ May 11, 2016 at 1:05

The mirror reflection of the image change the handedness of the molecules. They can then not be digested.

    $\begingroup$ To be fair, it should be noted that if there were people in the picture then the apples would have nutritional value to them. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I was going to suggest that somebody held the stencil backwards when they labeled that crate. It's not necessarily the entire image that's flipped... $\endgroup$ May 11, 2016 at 14:26

Either something with the mirroring of the image .. or the text on the box is spelled the same as "you rig odd"? (whatever that means, not a native speaker)
