Saw this on alt.poly, and know enough people who are on my flist who do handcrafts but don’t read a.p. that might enjoy this:

“We’ve all seen those craft projects. Projects that look like the cat barfed on a lace doily, or that make one suspect that they were designed by a colourblind gibbon on LSD. Projects that say “good taste went thataway”. Yeah. Those craft projects. Well, here’s where they all come to die. Enjoy the hideousness, folks. And let this be an example to you.”

This is just ugly. I mean, custard apples aren’t exactly the most visually appealing of fruit, but I’m sure that there’s plenty that could be done with presentation to make them look appealing. They could be arranged nicely in a pretty still-life, say. Or perhaps set against an interesting backdrop.
