    This cracks me up.

    I know a lot of people who find pears to be difficult, but in the case of pears, “difficult” does not have a dexterity component.

    The easy ones are the ones for which you don’t need any special “treatment” (skin removal, etc.). In this case, XKCD had it in for grapefruit (untasty AND difficult)… I think lemons are worse though! ;-)
