If your carrot took steroids

Buzz Lightyear carrotA gardener and grandfather in England made a startling discovery this weekend. While digging in his vegetable patch, he found this:

Wait a minute, have you been secretly ingesting some performance enhancing drugs, Mr. Carrot? Oh you would never do that?  You are not the A-Rod of the root vegetable family?

The man ran into his house and showed his three grandchildren. He decided to have a contest in which they had to guess what this carrot resembled.
 
Wait, I want to be in that contest. I guess: Brock Lesnar. No? Then what about Lou Ferrigno?  Wrong again?  Just kidding sir. I knew all along it was Snookie from Jersey Shore. 

Toy Story  
Wait. What? Your grandkids won because each of them made the correct guess? Oh, they said Buzz Lightyear? Alright. Considering that I have seen Buzz Lightyear more in the past year than in three previous decades, I should have made that connection. (But I am still giving Snookie as my final answer.)

PS: No real New Jerseyans were hurt OR taken advantage of in the making of this vegetable.

Whenever there are funny shaped vegetable stories in the press, they always seem to be British!! This one is pretty impressive though, my children would be thrilled if I brought that home from the supermarket :)

I only know Snooki from photos in the gossip mags - thankfully - but even I can see the resemblance :)

That is pretty impressive, I had a potato that looks like my Mum's face before but nothing this impressive.

I'll need to pay more attention to the veggies in my garden this year. I've never seen Jersey Shore but I'll trust that your opinion in accurate!

Vodka Logic said...

That's hilarious. It looks like a one eyed monster to me.. the stem part being the eye.

Maria said...

That is one messed up carrot! Makes me want to rethink my veggie intake and what veggies actually comprise it.

However, do you think that if I ate this, it's mean veggie muscles would be able to kick the fat cells right out of my existence? Just saying...

Simply Suthern said...

Now that's pretty cool. I wonder what it would have grown into if they had left it in the ground?

Politician?

Intense Guy said...

Its some sort of vegetable plot to keep you and Mr Mac from enjoying yourselves... just thinking outside the bedroom door an orange buzz lightyear is saying (over and over) "To infinity and beyond!" which is mathematically impossible.

a Buzz Carrot. Kewl!

SmartBear said...

It reminds me of the meatheads who work out in the weights section of my gym and grunt and moan whilst lifting weights twice their size. So....ewwww.
Best,

Susan Erickson said...

He needs a head and Buzz's would work well on him....either that or just a plain paper bag....

Eva Gallant said...

That's one weird-looking carrot!
He could probably sell it on ebay for a small fortune!

Helena Halme said...

Very funny. I'd say Buzz Lightyear too. xx

TKW said...

That carrot's been "juicing" for sure. How bizarre is that thing?

Noe Noe Girl...A Queen of all Trades. said...

Wonder how much that would go for on ebay? I'll go with the Buzz look alike!

We always get some unusual carrots every year too.
Some of them cannot be shown on a family blog.

Babes Mami said...

Molly Malone said...

That's freaky... Also, if you're interested, there's someone selling a potato shaped like Mickey Mouse's head on Ebay. Tragic...

ModernMom said...

Little Ms Blogger said...

I don't know why, but that is the ugliest carrot EVER and repulses me.

How odd that something so good for me makes me want to puke by just looking at it.

shortmama said...

To ranch dip and beyond!

kwpang said...

wow that carrot looks really strong, too strong i wouldn't dare to eat it..

The Constant Complainer said...

LOL, it really does look like Buzz. That's one wacked-out carrot.

Kate said...

I suspect someone has been a bit heavy-handed with the old fertilizer.

To me, it looks like an (unfortunately) healthier version of the Pillsbury Dough Boy. But I might just be projecting.

J.J. in L.A. said...

Snooki, for sure! lol!

secret agent woman said...

That is amazing. I would have to preserve that carrot somehow and keep it. To infinity and beyond!

DaisyGal said...
