  • about apples and oranges very common English idiom that we use when we're talking

  • about comparisons but we use it in comparisons when things don't really

  • look alike or they can't be compared let me give you an example if you go to the

  • city to get something to eat you have a choice of fast-food restaurants like

  • McDonald's or you can go to your local home made restaurant where they serve

  • delicious food where you can sit down and enjoy it with your family both meals

  • will fill you up both meals will be satisfactory but their homemade meal in

  • your local restaurant but would be far superior so you can't compare McDonald's

  • with the homemade restaurant so it's like comparing apples with oranges both

  • fruits but very different okay so next time somebody uses the phrase to you or

  • that's apples and oranges you'll know that it's about two things that really

  • can't be compared okay so remember to look us up on our website
