Ok this one was too good to pass up. Radish in intensive care after murder attempt. No, Radish is not the personâ€™s last name but the rather the vegetable which we so enjoy in our salads.
Seems a small town in Japan had a radish growing along the side of the road. Is this normal you ask, I would have to think having vegetation growing out of the road is normal yes but the townspeople admired the radish. It even had its own nickname, â€œGutsy Radishâ€. This radish was so popular that when news broke of the attempted murder of the radish, people were distraught.
Timeout here. We are talking about a radish. The vegetable. Used in some in their salads, garnish on the table and other things. We arenâ€™t talking about some guy with the last name of radish. This made the TV news in Japan. Can you picture watching NBC Nightly news and the lead in story is â€œRadish in intensive care after murder attempt.â€ Half the people watching the news would be like ummmm whoâ€™s this radish fellow. The other half would pay no mind to the plight of this radish. Would the networks be fighting for the TV rights of the radishâ€™s struggles to make it back to life and/or movie rights? Will Court TV send Diane Diamond to cover the trial? Hey maybe when the radish is feeling up to it, Larry King can have him/her/it on the show. Or better yet, Geraldo can do an expose on the life of this radish and what led the person to try killing the radish. The possibilities are endless.
I feel sorry for whoever tried to â€œmurder the radish.â€ The person will probably be hung. Think about, was this radish going to live a full life. Or was someone eventually going to get curious and see how it tasted. I mean we are talking about a radish here. Do we really care that someone tried to murder a radish? If you answered yes, then you are just as crazy as the person who tried to murder the beloved radish.
I for one look forward to my next salad as I will be ordering one with extra radishes and of course balsamic vinegar.
