Sue and Joe were musicians that had fallen on hard times. Sue was a singer and Joe a drummer. One day as they were passing an orchard they decided to go scrumping. The idea being that what they didn't eat they might be able to sell.
As they worked across, filling their knapsacks they came across a rhubarb patch. "Wow! Look at the size of those celery stalks." Joe exclaimed and started hacking away. Sue laughed, then started to sing.

And that's the true origin of that most famous song:
'You ain't nickin' celery Joe'
