This week: Vegetables

Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon.  ~Doug Larson

Vegetables are something God invented to let women get even with their children. ~P.J. Rourke

Cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.  ~Mark Twain

An onion can make people cry, but there has never been a vegetable invented to make them laugh.  ~Will Rogers

You are what you eat.  For example, if you eat garlic you're apt to be a hermit.  ~Franklin P. Jones
