The ugly truth about vegetables: part three

If only fresh vegetables could appear
on trashy daytime talk shows.....

The broccoli and the parsnip
Dated many years ago
'Til "Brock" realized that "Parsie"
Wasn't all that great to know.
She laughed too loudly, looked too coarse,
And flirted with the corn
By then, of course, it was too late
And cauliflower was born.

I just knew there was some strange reason for cauliflower to exist. These are hilarious, Janna.
Here’s my sick 55

Grace said...

And it rhymes too!

Monkey Man said...

Quite a veggie tale. This series is awesome. Thanks for stopping by my 55.

Janna said...

G-Man: A bowl of melted butter... wow, that totally explains my high fat content.

Brian Miller: Now you know!

ChefKar: So far I haven't thought of any others, but I'm glad you liked these. :)

Sh@KiR@ CK: Thank you! :)

John's Comments: I Googled "fis-fis", and am still not sure what it means. It did lead me to an odd Japanese page which sells costumes for belly-dancers, though... (!!?)

Enchanted Oak: It's good to finally know the whole story, isn't it?

Grace: Bonus! :)

MonkeyMan: Remember this if you're ever on a vegetarian version of Jeopardy. And if you win money, I want some. :)

Jingle said...

outstanding 55,
you give me a laugh,
cute words,
perfect words.

Stan Ski said...

So meat and 2 veg only needs to be a steak and a small piece of cauliflower... I'll tell the chef.

PattiKen said...

Good one. But of course, just like the brussels sprouts, I am fond of broccoli, parsnips and cauliflower. So for me, it was a marriage made in heaven.

Janna said...

Jingle: I dunno if it's perfect, but I'll definitely settle for "cute". :)

StanSki: Unless french fries count as a vegetable, in which case you should convince him to give you double the amount of french fries.

PattiKen: You should have a garden!

So that's why cauliflower tastes like a bastard. I like my vegetables to be green.

Marla said...

Simply scandalous

Janna said...

Spam guy who I deleted: Quit that.

GorillaBananas: I'm okay with carrots being orange, and okay with peppers being red, yellow, orange, etc. It does seem freaky for cauliflower to be deadly ghostly white, though.

Marla: Just imagine what will happen during the commercial break!
