A is for Apple

Right around the time a certain colonel had his annual physical, a notice appeared on the bulletin board just inside the commissary: An Apple A Day Keeps Doc Napoleon Away.  It was accompanied by a drawing of a baseball cap-wearing stick figure brandishing an oversized apple.  A few of the rays coming off of the apple were in pursuit of a smaller stick figure, which was fleeing with its enormous syringe.

An Apple a Day Keeps Doc Napoleon Away

When Major Samantha Carter stopped by the infirmary later that week, she was astonished by the array of apples inside the office of Doctor Janet Fraiser.  Red, green, yellow, and mixes of the three, the apples spilled off the CMO's desk and into a conveniently-placed file box.  Said CMO was cheerfully munching on what Sam was nearly certain was a "Jonathon" apple.

Once the office door was closed, Janet explained how the sign came to be.  Apparently, she had chided Colonel Jonathon "Jack" O'Neill about his propensity for consuming beer, Chinese carry-out, and pizza instead of fruits and vegetables.  She'd stated that if he ate a little more produce and a little less soy sauce, his blood pressure levels wouldn't be quite so concerning.

"An apple a day, huh?" he'd mused.  An hour after his physical, the bold-lettered sign debuted.  The drawing was tacked onto it a few hours later.

"Ever since," Janet finished, tossing the core of her snack into the wastebasket, "appeasement gifts have been appearing on my desk at irregular intervals."

"Obviously the colonel made the sign," Sam reasoned, "but the drawing looks like something Daniel would do."

"Well, of course," Janet winked.  "I asked him to make it for me after I remembered I'd recently come across my mother's recipe for fried apple pies.  Tomorrow night... bring a carton of vanilla ice cream with you."
