Gentleman Troper!
Or, more accurately, Just An Apple And A Caption. No, this trope is not about actual apples; it's about distracting a group of people by asking them which one is the strongest/smartest/prettiest/whatever, making them bicker and/or fight. Of course, the apple in the image demonstrates none of that. So motion to pull.

In other suggestions, there's any number of classical paintings that actually illustrate the subject, such as this one (I'm not sure if classic nudity qualifies as NSFW though).

Or, here's a visual pun on the topic. I was unable to find any webcomic examples, but I'm sure they are there.
Special trousers. Very heroic.

Let me guess, you're here from Apple of Discord. I completely agree. I was thinking about this as well. What the hell is "KALLISTI?" This image does not explain anything. About your suggestions, I don't see why 1.1 would be NSFW. It's classical art and isn't graphic. I would like to see a few more examples.

The it-thingy
KALLISTI means 'for the fairest', as the original did. I'm willing to vote Keep Until Better Image Suggested on that ground, but only 1.1 seems even decent so far.

No, the other one.
While I like the painting, it doesn't really illustrate much. Still an improvement.

The Visual Pun doesn't quite work.

I like the painting.

EDIT: What about this?

That works. I see an apple and discord.

Five is clear. I will vote for it pending anything better.

Same here. 5 is the best so far.

Definitely not a weirdo
Five seems to get the point across better than the other suggestions so far.

Cool. That's enough of a consensus; it's up, potholed to The Trojan Cycle, and tagged. Caption or no?

No consensus; locking up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
