Extremely random question

Who decided we should eat lettuce? I mean, I have nothing against it. It doesn't taste bad. In fact, it doesn't really taste. But who decided it should be on the menu? Did some ancestor way back take a stroll through the garden and think, "Wow, here's a weird kind of ball-shaped plant. Isn't that strange? Let us eat it. I'll call it... let us. Yes, what a good idea!"

It probably wasn't the same ancestor that said, "Ooh... here's a plant with pretty flowers and waxy leaves. Oh, Leander, don't you think we should eat it?"

Yes, it was the same group who looked at a chicken and said, "I'll eat the first thing that comes out of its ass" good thing it didn't crap first after that thought.

You see ... idle minds, they will question divine things like eating lettuce.

Hehehe... Good point about the chicken. And whose bright idea was it to drink cow's milk, which a friend of mine calls 'cow juice'. Eggs, according to him, are chicken fruits. Worrygly, he's not five years old. He's nearly 30!

Tamara said...

Worrygly. Yes, that's a word. In my dictionary, anyway.

My typing just gets worse. Some journo!

Well I believe that whoever started on the milk is the same person who encouraged woman to swallow after head. Yes yes yes. They did.

Its the same mother who came up with wanking for guys, "Oooh loookie there, a pair of penis shaped thingies, I think I'll pull! Oh my look, juice come out, fabulous!"

OK - my grossness for the day is exhausted.

Good - I'm pulling my nauseous face already :)

Tamara said...

Sweets... Yay! Someone thinks I'm funny (I'm going to ignore the fact that she also thinks I'm crazy).

Bridget said...

Don't trust Sweets. Don't

Tamara said...

B: And I should trust you, the mind twister and value warper, instead? :)

Bridget said...

Yes ... darling you should. You should.

Bridget said...

Lazy journos!

Tamara said...

B: What prompted that?

Bridget said...
