Careful! That carrot will poke your eye out!

I saw this carrot in the store today. I'd never seen a carrot with two points so I had to buy it. Don't know what happened to it to make it grow like this. All I know is that trying to eat it was a big mistake. Truly the world's most dangerous vegetable.

Women will just love that!

(Of course because it's double healthy...what'd you think...)

b ill said...

Wow. A chickenfoot carrot.

Konpasontzi said...

Really? didn't see that never before? it is a very common thing but the sellers of carrots only sell the normal ones. They thing that genetic monsters usually are not attractive or not "trustfully" (does it exist? jajaja) to people.

plume said...

What about the pineapple?! Or is that a fruit. Pretty damn dangerous though.

dan.hunterx said...

jajajaj que manera de reirme jorge xD!!!!!

El vegetal mas peligroso del mundo xD!!

Hello from chile :D

Rhea said...

Oh, well, here in Texas all our carrots look like that.

Ok, just kidding. I like how the veggie that's good for your eyesight looks like it's taking out your eye. Nice.

redelf said...

Mutant veggies!!!

Utter Basketcase said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Thats toooo funny! :-)

Looks a little kinky! :-S *GiGGLeS* xx

Ruthio said...

I thought carrots were meant to help you see in the dark not blind you. Be careful my friend...as I always say the 5 fruit and veg a day thing is just a government plot, for what I'm not yet sure, only time will tell!

Thats a crazy carrot!

There can't be two characters with eye patches. That's way played.

That's the letter "Y" brought to you by Jorge's carrot. (Sorry, made me think of "Sesame Street" for some reason. I'm in touch with my inner dork today...LOL)

Several years ago, I worked at a camp in Canada where we got these bulk shipments of veggies... Our carrots were of a normal length, but 3-4 inches in diameter. Seriously! Really hard to reconcile mentally, and usually I ended up gagging when I thought about it too hard. (We'd slice them into cute little carrot sticks so that the campers never knew the difference.)

jen said...

You could poke both eyes out at once with that! Deadly!

chefmom said...

Maybe it's a secret water finding stick. I could think of another use for it, but it would be crass....
Next time, wera safety google!

Next on LOST....

The theorists would really puzzle over that picture. Mutant plants on the island? Nuclear testing?

elainemarieg said...

You're silly.

Lost this week!

maven said...

Too funny!

I think it's when they hit something like hard patch of dirt or a rock and go uh oh have to get around that.. and split. At least mine that I tried to grow came out like that all the time.

Avinash said...

13 days. 13 days we wait. And you give us a two-pointed carrot.

I love you really, Jorge.

Honeybell said...

Clearly that carrot is a spawn of Satan.

TheUnity (Siv) said...

Loool, that is truly wierd..

In a cool way. Loool, I would preserve it for later eye poking :D

You have to watch out for those carrots. A first you think its giving you the peace sign, and in reality its giving you the European 'up yours'. I wouldn't be surprised if it's French. Arrogant and haughty those francophone carrots.

Sue Wacvet said...

I can't believe how loud I laughed when I saw that picture!!!

Larkin said...

That second picture made me laugh pretty hard. Thanks for that!

Hoku said...

I always told my parents that vegetables are not good for you. You have finally proven my point! I am forwarding your post to my elderly father with a big "I TOLD YA SO!" (35 years later, I win!!!)
Too bad this carrot wasn't around when I needed it... LOL

Will said...

this had me dying for a good minute!

Lianne said...

There's a mutant bunny going hungry somewhere tonight. I hope you are happy now.

Post more blogs!

bignivanut said...

Thanks for the laugh Jorge! Your wit is what I love about your blog.

Colleen Oakes said...

I'm stunned. I think if I didn't know you were on a very successful tv show, I would think you had way too much time on your hands.

But I still love to read.

Miss Scarlett said...

ckalt! that's terrible

now I forgot what I was going to say...

Heather (a.k.a. Bella) said...

That looks like a chicken foot. You should get it together with the pork belly (and nipple) you got, and create some sort of Frankenstein monster animal thingy.

All I could think of was "You'll shoot your eye out" from A Christmas Story

Fra gee lay

Topanga said...

Sooner or later, somebody always puts an eye out.

Hey Bonni, if you read this I might be able to explain the giant carrot. Here in Nova Scotia there are farmers who grow their carrots in a sort of peat bog area. The ground is rich in natural nutrients and there's lots of water so the carrots grow huge. One carrot will supply the side veggie dish for a family of 5. I love them because it means much less peeling of veggies in food preparation. Usually the odd shaped ones get sorted out and other farmers buy them to feed their cattle. Cows don't have the same problem with eye-pokage when eating carrots as some people do. ;-)

michelle said...

jorge you are too funny. i know i can always count on your blog to give me a little chuckle at work.

twisby said...

i wish i had a potato like that, because i like potatoes better than carrots :P

Sara said...

Hello Jorge,
Is a girl Italian sfegatata fan of Lost. You are formidable.
If you want to explain what has happened to the carrot of photos, live in the country and I often cultivate. Well, simply grew underground divided by a root balled that has separated the two roots, and so has become so strange.
Congratulations on your blog, I know very little English but I find it really amazing.
See you soon.

This is surely a case of Vitamin A gone bad! And coming up next on "When vegetables attack..."

Paul Burrows said...

I remember growing up we had a garden and every once in awile we would get carrots or other produce like that. I have no idea how it happened.

Adolesence is going to suck for that carrot.

Heather said...

This reminds me of Nude Carrot Man
Enjoy! (yes, safe for work)

Heather said...

There was this guy who believed very much in true love and decided to take his time to wait for his right girl to appear. He believed that there would definitely be someone special out there for him, but none came.
Every year at Christmas, his ex-girlfriend would return from Vancouver to look him up. He was aware that she still held some hope of re-kindling the past romance with him. He did not wish to mislead her in any way. nike shoxsSo he would always get one of his girl friends to pose as his steady whenever she came back. That went on for several years and each year, the guy would get a different girl to pose as his romantic interest. So whenever the ex-girlfriend came to visit him, she would be led into believing that it was all over between her and the guy. nike womens shoes The girl took all those rather well, often trying to casually tease him about his different girlfriends, or so, as it seemed! In fact, the girl often wept in secret whenever she saw him with another girl, but she was too proud to admit it. Still, every Christmas, she returned, hoping to re-kindle some form of romance. But each time, she returned to Vancouver feeling disappointed.
Finally she decided that she could not play that game any longer. puma mens shoes Therefore, she confronted him and professed that after all those years, he was still the only man that she had ever loved. mens puma shoesAlthough the guy knew of her feelings for him, he was still taken back and have never expected her to react that way. He always thought that she would slowly forget about him over time and come to terms that it was all over between them. nike shox Although he was touched by her undying love for him and wanted so much to accept her again, he remembered why he rejected her in the first place-she was not the one he wanted. nike 360 air maxSo he hardened his heart and turned her down cruelly. nike running shoesSince then, three years have passed and the girl never return anymore. They never even wrote to each other. NIKE air shoes The guy went on with his life..... still searching for the one but somehow deep inside him, he missed the girl.
On the Christmas of 1995, he went to his friend's party alone. "Hey, how come all alone this year? Where are all your girlfriends? What happened to that Vancouver babe who joins you every Christmas?", asked one of his friend.nike air max He felt warm and comforted by his friend's queries about her, still he just surged on.
Then, he came upon one of his many girlfriends whom he once requested to pose as his steady. He wanted so much to ignore her ..... not that he was impolite,wholesale nike shoes but because at that moment, he just didn't feel comfortable with those girlfriends anymore. nike shox torchIt was almost like he was being judged by them. The girl saw him and shouted across the floor for him. Unable to avoid her, he went up to acknowledge her.
"Hi......how are you? Enjoying the party?" the girl asked.
"Sure.....yeah!", he replied.
She was slightly tipsy..... must be from the whiskey on her hand.
