There was a scientist who wanted to see how smart kids were before they went to kindergarten.
He blind-folded them and gave them a lime lifesaver to eat. He asked them if they knew what kind it was.
“Lime” they all replied
“Very good!” the scientist said “What about this one?” He gave them a honey flavored one and asked them if they knew what it was but no one knew.
“C’mon!” he said “It’s what your mommy calls your daddy”
All of the sudden one kid spits it out and yells out “EVERYBODY SPIT IT OUT – THEY’RE A$$HOLES!”

Interesting Fact: To prevent scurvy during the 19th century, British sailors were issued a daily allowance of citrus, such as lemon, and later switched to lime.[8] The use of citrus was initially a closely guarded military secret, as scurvy was a common scourge of various national navies, and the ability to remain at sea for lengthy periods without contracting the disorder was a huge benefit for the military. The British sailor thus acquired the nickname, “Limey” because of their usage of limes. ( https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lime_(fruit) )
