A Carrot's Tale



And now for something completely different!





Meet Mr. Carrot. He showed up in my garden one day.




He was but a wee thing, weighing in under 1 ounce.




He lived the good life. He hung out in cool places...




earned a living by being my personal assistant...





had lots of fun with his best friend...




and even had a nifty pad of his own!


Unfortunately he discovered that he enjoyed drinking.





He started out light...





but soon progressed to the heavier stuff. 
He began to hang out with all sorts of unsavory characters.





While in an inebriated state 
he stumbled upon other unfortunate veggies.
Drunk, confused, and not knowing what to do 
he decided to join them.






Being the nefarious group that they were 
they talked Mr. Carrot into a lively game of strip poker.
Oh what fun they were having...until they met up with...Blade!




Now Blade, an edgy character known for 
not being the sharpest knife in the drawer, 
was quick to anger whenever he was teased.
Of course the veggie crew began taunting him. They said things like...
"Hey Blade! How many knives does it take to change a lightbulb?"
To which Blade replied, "I dunno".
They respond in unison, "Go ahead, take a stab at hit!"





And that is how they eventually became dinner.

I enjoyed the story but I hope you didn't end up eating Mr. Carrot.

That was good! You could have made a children s story out of it! We could have made millions! Mr. Carrot could have been hob-nobbing with the likes of Mr. Bill! But, alas, we have ... dinner. Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day, but give the world a carrot story, you feed him for a lifetime!

LOL! Unfortunately, with the drinking and the violence I think this would have been rejected from most publishers as a children's book. Maybe young adult fiction? You know, with the subplots of alcoholism and bullying that might work. Hmmmmmmm.

My condolences to the Sister family on the loss of their beloved Mr. Carrot. I hope you will be able to remember the good times you had with him while you mourn his passing. By sharing him with your blog readers, his memory will live on forever. RIP, Mr. Carrot.

That was so funny!

Poor Mr Carrot! I bet he was tasty though! :)

Kathleen said...

Oh. My. Goodness!! Laughing out loud! I think this has the potential of a really cute kids' story. Well, minus the inebriation and strip poker, of course!

Lissaloo said...

Poor poor Mr Carrot! What a great narrative, it's good to know how that all goes down. I will be showing this to my Son, and he will be laughing I assure you :)

Hilarious! The domastic mama is right -- he does give the those Veggie Tales a run for their money!

Thanks for my blog bling! You're the best!

Oh great- my daughter tells me the other day she wants to be a vegetarian because animals are cute- I definitely can't show her this or all she'll eat is popcorn!

That is undoubtedly one of the coolest carrots I have ever seen! Amazing! And, one of the best veggie stories ever, to boot! You crafty little wordsmith, you! Thank you for reminding me of yet another one of my favorite words: Nefarius. Good one! I've missed you!

An adult Veggie Tale.

You could have done a kid's book out of that if you didn't make him drink wine and then cook him up!

thrasherswife said...

Man you are clever!! So cute, thanks for the chuckle!

Kimberly said...

WOW! I have never seen a veggie like that before.

He lived a great life! Now he has even had his 15 mins of fame.

Okay, this was way too cute. I submitted it to StumbleUpon!

Very clever way of telling a funny story. My favorite was him hanging over the 7 Up can.
