  • Seen and heard on a news report featuring a European politician responding to 'market outcomes' of the E.coli scare/crisis.

    He was brandishing a cucumber at the time.

  • No. Seriously?

  • Yes. It was the highlight of my day. Please note the cucumber was wrapped in plastic for the sake of public health.

  • Always insist on a sheathed cuke.

  • This opens a whole Pandora's box of questions, not the least of which is "Which vegetable is most dignified?". And is this ranking invariant, or does it change with the times? Vegetable popularity does - witness the recent Irish infatuation with mangetout, which duly ran its course, only to be replaced by rocket lettuce, aka arugula.

  • I think the sporting adage "form is temporary, class is permanent" applies. If we're going to speak of dignified vegetables then the dignity must be enduring, not merely a passing fad or foible.

    Although I don't especially like the taste of them, I do find artichokes especially dignified. They have such stability, and also a sort of primness about them, like a maiden aunt in a great skirt (although like all vegetables, they yield readily to a salacious reading).

  • I'd vote for the beet. Quite a dignified vegetable, and never involved in any scandalous E. coli scares.

  • Always insist on a sheathed cuke.

    Surely this is a typo for 'heatshed cuke'; though where I live we call heatsheds 'greenhouses'.

    If beets are so goddamned dignified, why do they blush constantly like giggling hormonal teenagers? Plus, have you ever read "The Beet Queen"? A book chocked to its little bookish gills with lascivious behavior.

    My money is on the kohlrabi, because men of the Torah are always dignified, even those who work in kohlmines.

  • Baby okra is teh alsome.

  • Always insist on a sheathed cuke? Reminds me of the safe sex informational activities they held at my dorm when I was a freshman. We actually used cucumbers.

    Strangely, when I typed "cuke" the autocorrect on my phone wanted to replace it with "vile"! Everybody has an opinion, I guess.
