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.) $\endgroup$ – PyRulez May 11 '16 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. $\endgroup$ – Big Black Box May 11 '16 at 6:55
  • $\begingroup$ 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... $\endgroup$ – Darrel Hoffman May 11 '16 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)

    $\begingroup$ "your i go?" .. sorry, have no clue, but this is fun :) $\endgroup$ – user22250 May 11 '16 at 0:57
  • $\begingroup$ Nope, neither "you rig odd" or "your i go". $\endgroup$ – PyRulez May 11 '16 at 1:01
