return of the apples

Some of you may remember this post from last year. An illustration of an apple tree that was supposed to in some way represent a flow chart of scientific method. Well, joy of joys and surprise of surprises, I received the following diagram to illustrate the importance of Newton's "discovery" relative to our current understanding of the operation of the Solar System!
I like it for the following reasons:
a) it includes an apple tree, but this time it is relevant
b) there is a squirrel running up the apple tree
c) the apples are more or less apple shaped


As an aside, but also involving student drawings... how great is this dinosaur???

Clearly this apple tree was plagiarized from the other apple tree.
