This is one I remember from High School, so it is an old one.

There was a man who had no eyes.
He went outside to view the skies.
He saw a tree with apples on it.
He took no apples off, yet left no apples on it.

Okay, I think I can get this one:

The man had no 'eyes', but maybe he had 'eye'
He saw a tree with TWO apples on it
He took no 'apples' off, but maybe he took 'apple' off
He left no 'apples' on, but left 'apple' on

So with his one eye he saw a tree with two apples and took one off, leaving one behind. Does that make sense? It's not grammatically correct, but it's the only explanation I see.
