Joke: a little CCR

Once upon a time in old France there was a small vineyard run by a coven of witches. The grapes that grew there were used exclusively for the production of raisins, and were always harvested under a full moon to preserve the magic properties some of them had.

The witches believed that one full moon in seven was a bad one. While the raisins made from grapes harvested under a good moon were ordinary and mostly went to general consumption, grapes harvested under a bad moon would rot, with one exception: The biggest and strongest of the grapes would survive to become the legendary . . . Bad Moon Raisin.
