Furbidden Fruit

According to legend, two bandits once set out to fetch the grapes of the impossible quest,

thereby incurring the wrath of the gods who turned them into tantalizers fated to forever wandering amongst the vineyards.

Some say, mere mortals who dare to obtain the ambrosia of the vine are drawn off course by the beady-eyes of the bandits and left hopelessly squeeing the rest of their days.

“My girls and I are huge fans of your site – thanks for all you do to make the world a cuter place. This morning we found these two grape bandits hanging out on our arbor/fence. Hope you like the shots!” -Jennifer D.

    I immediately thought of a furry version of Adam and Eve:
    Adam: “Are you sure this is okay?”
    Eve: “He said don’t eat the APPLE. Grapes are fine!” ;)
