Perhaps, on some level,  you envision a bunch of flaxen-haired beauties with flowers in their hair, blithely meandering through lush orange groves, lovingly selecting only the finest fruit, which will later be hand-squeezed to ensure that you will be getting nothing short of a miracle of nature?

BTW, do NOT ask about shrimp!
