No, what really happened is this: Newton, pondering how to make himself famous, sat down by the tree, right beneath an apple. Well, the apple didn't want to fall and hit Newton on the head, so it tried to get his attention, to tell him to move. Well, it got Newton's attention, by falling right on his head. So, once Newton recovered from the fall(it was a big apple), the apple explained to him about the fact that objects fall down, and that all the other apples called it gravity. It also said that only a complete idiot would sit right under an apple tree loaded with apples, in the Fall. Well, that got Newton thinking, and he realised that no one else seemed to know that gravity is what makes things fall, and so he thought he had found a way to become famous. 'Hmm,' he thought,'if I were to say that I had discovered a new force, and were to prove it, then I'd soon be known all over the world.' That's what he was thinking, and so no one could say differently, that it wasn't him who discovered gravity, he ate the apple, and made all the other apples on the tree into applesauce.
That's what really happened, though you never hear anything like that nowadays, because all the other apples in the world have learned better than to tell people stuff.
That was a bit long.
