Ah, yes! It was once common for Russian actors to eat nothing but raw apples for days or even weeks before the performance, as this was thought to improve their complexion. However, as was demonstrated by one Novgorod theatre company's particularly guttural, teeth-clenching performance of Macbeth, this practice led to some digestive issues -- spawning the classic idiom we all know and love today.
