    Nice to see that the Condon carrot appears to have a reservoir tip.

    Tsk, tsk, tsk :D Doesn’t anyone of you grow carrots? Remember the funny varietes with, ehhh… “appendages”

    Why would anyone make a coreless carrot? The core is the best part.

    @AshleyZ too right! I was just thinking that, the core is the sweetest part of the carrot, everything else tastes bad.

    @AshleyZ “The core is the best part.”

    Tastes like chicken.

    Why would you want a coreless carrot? That’s like an airless balloon!!!!

  11. Firebrand38 says: February 16, 20107:10 pm

    Richard @ The Bewildered Brit: People buy airless balloons all the time (but you knew that).

    Or did you want to buy 1440 balloons already inflated?

    Someone actually sent the “3c stamp”:

    And yes, Firebrand38, I know it’s not the “1937 Illustrated Catalog”. Stop ruining people’s fun.

    docca: Stop pointing out dumb analogies? That ain’t gonna happen. Just trying to keep everyone intellectually honest.
    If you think that misstatements of fact are funny then you need to check out Glenn Beck (and yeah, I know he cries a lot over misstatements of fact).

    How the hell did this turn into Glenn Beck promotion?

    Anyways, I was going to post “I hope the rest of the “big, illustrated catalog” is this sexy” but apparently we’re all over the age of 12, so I’ll take it back.

    katey: If you thought that was a promotion you didn’t click on the link that I provided.
