Sorbet Saturday, Part 1

From the archives:

One might think that a somewhat intelligent software engineer would be able to consume his dessert without operating instructions.

Explanation: A friend of mine (let's call him "Sam") ordered lime sorbet while we were at a department lunch once, several years ago. The sorbet came beautifully packaged in a giant frozen lime. In fact, the rock-solid lime appeared to be impenetrabble. Most of us were done with our desserts before "Sam" realized that there was a very fine seam along the top of the lime which allowed the top to be removed for consumption of the sorbet within.

Now, I'm not going to say that he was the only one confused by that particular dessert, but he ordered it, so he gets all the credit.
