    There was a man who had no eyes,
    he went out to scan the skies.

    He saw a tree with apples on it,
    he took no apples off;
    But left no apples on it.

    How did he do it?

    did he ask someone else to get the apples off the tree for him?

    Old one.

    A man with one eye (no eyes) saw a tree with two apples. He took one apple (not apples) and left one apple (not apples).

    IOW, the usual semantic quibble.

    The man had one eye, there were two apples on the tree, he took one and left one.

    Alternative solution

    Nailed to the tree was a board with the sign: "Apples".

    easy, the tree started out with no apples on it...
    he took none off, because there were none to start with
    and left none on because there were still none when he left...
