As dangerous as a carroted artery?

Damn, I'm only trained to defend against fresh fruit.

Is there a reason we're linking to an article that links to the article about the headline?

Swedes are vegetables? That's insulting.

"The Telegraph reports that almost a quarter of those surveyed said pumpkins were the toughest vegetable to skin and chop while a fifth said swedes were the most dangerous."

Not dangerous.

I knew this had to be a British article. Americans don't eat vegetables. Unless you count ketchup.

10,000 years ago if you ate one of these and didn't have the good sense to spit it out because of the bad taste, you would be dead.

Not a vegetable, I know.

What about all those dangerous cucumbers that keep jumping up people's hoochies and buttholes?

I find that Lebanese cucumbers are relatively harmless but the more common, larger variety tends to grate a bit.

halfof33: what the swede is a "swede"?


It's a vegetable. I believe you call it a rutabaga.

Just as you call rocket "arugula" and courgettes "zucchini"


and a slapper a "tramp", a tramp a "bum", a bum a "fanny" and a fanny a "pussy."

Wrong. The green almond is mildly toxic, but not the ripe. GM has nothing to do with it. The almond isn't a nut, but the pit of a seed of a tree related to the peach.

2012-06-14 11:25:01 AM
FTA: a fifth [of those surveyed] said rutabagas were the most dangerous.

I'll go with this, most people probably don't make their own pasties very often.

Hannibal Lecter: Then something woke you, didn't it? Was it a dream? What was it?
Clarice Starling: I heard a strange noise.
Hannibal Lecter: What was it?
Clarice Starling: It was... hissing. Some kind of hissing, almost a sharp whistle.
Hannibal Lecter: What did you do?
Clarice Starling: I went downstairs. I crept into the kitchen. I was so scared to look, but I had to.
Hannibal Lecter: And what did you see, Clarice? What did you see?
Clarice Starling: A covered boiling pot of yams on the stove. Steam was hissing out. It was like the yams were screaming.
Hannibal Lecter: They were boiling yams for Thanksgiving?
Clarice Starling: And they were screaming.
Hannibal Lecter: And you ran away?
Clarice Starling: No. First I tried to free them. I... I took the lid off the pan, but they wouldn't hop out. They just sat there, boiling. They wouldn't run.
Hannibal Lecter: But you could and you did, didn't you?
Clarice Starling: Yes. I took one yam, and I ran away as fast as I could.
Hannibal Lecter: Where were you going, Clarice?
Clarice Starling: I don't know. I didn't have any food, well, other than yam of course, and it was so very hot, boiling hot. I thought, I thought if I could save just one, but... it was wet and starchy and starting to fall apart. I didn't get more than a few miles when the sheriff's car picked me up. My mom was so angry she sent me to live at the Lutheran orphanage in Bozeman. I never ate Thanksgiving dinner again.
Hannibal Lecter: What became of your yam, Clarice?
Clarice Starling: They mashed it up with some brown sugar, butter, and bourbon.
Hannibal Lecter: You still wake up sometimes, don't you? You wake up in the dark and hear the screaming of the yams.
Clarice Starling: Yes.
Hannibal Lecter: And you think if you save poor Catherine, you could make them stop, don't you? You think if Catherine lives, you won't wake up in the dark ever again to that awful screaming of the yams.
Clarice Starling: I don't know. I don't know.

My vote's for crinoids. The aggressive rhubarb effect is bad enough to top the list.

Thanks for clearing that up. I didn't make the connection between the photo of a rutabaga and the text about swedes.

//mashed rutabagas are more important than mashed potatos at our family Thanksgiving dinner

The Supreme Court decided they were a vegetable after all.

Most vegetables have as many carcinogens as tobacco. Truth is knowledge.

I'm going with spinach.
If TV has taught me anything, it's that spinach has similar effects to PCP.
