Ahh, Garden of Eden jokes are a dime a bushel, so I'm not claiming that this is a particularly original cartoon, but I've had it rattling around in my head for a while now and I wanted to get it down on paper.
It's also the first cartoon I've drawn with several different punch-lines in mind. Originally Eve was going to ask if the apple was organic. Then I had the idea of the snake offering her a banana first rather than an apple. There was also a brief idea of the snake trying to get her to eat the apple by disgusing it in various forms - pies, cakes, tarts, jelly and juice. But I finally set on the idea that Eve, or anyone for that matter, would much prefer chocolate to an apple. I mean, I'd definitely be more tempted by a bar of Cadbury's than an apple. Mind you, as Alan Partridge also noted, I'd also be a bit freaked out by a talking snake offering me food...
