“What’s worse than finding a worm in your apple?"/"The Holocaust.”

A popular apple joke is:

“What’s worse than finding a worm in your apple? Finding half a worm!”

“Finding half a worm” implies that one has eaten the other half. The joke has been cited in print since at least 1911.

An anti-joke version is:

Q: What’s worse than finding a worm in your apple?
A: The Holocaust.


The Holocaust—a genocide in the 20th century—is, of course, worse than finding a worm in your apple. The antijoke has been cited in print since at least 2004 and has been featured on many GIFs.
