I wonder why glass condoms didn't leak into other, fertile endeavors?

Reminds of the time I was working as banana bender. Tough job that was. Not many people know that banana's are originally straight.The process of bending them strengthens the skin and makes them last longer. Still has to be done mostly by hand. I must have had millions of bananas go through my fingers.

one time we decided to try to grow crooked carrots - if you are going to grow carrots rather than buy them in the grocery store they should be different. We added a bunch of gravel to sandy soil to serve as barriers to straight growth. The best results came from growing several plants practically on top of each other. The carrots would twist around each other looking similar to this, though often more extreme.

Damn, I thought it was those evil Brussels bureaucrats who went round straightening our fruit. Now we find it's a home grown vegetable plot?
