What is the story behind the Carrots joke on talkbass?
Do a search.
You will have to figure it out on your own.
I like carrots.
You will learn in time, young grasshopper.
Figuring it out is like an initiation.
It's kind of like Bugs Bunny.
You know, Hair Tonic and big red hair monsters and mad scientists and bottles of ether and "nighty night" floating down the river type thing.
Or maybe it was about wearing long blonde ponytails and "speaws and magic hewmets" and little short bald guys with speech impediments.

Nah. It's really about Jim Beam.

back when folks first got the ability to post polls, many stupid polls showed up in OT, and instead of closing them down, i started adding the option "carrots", or some carrot related option, such as carrot souffle, in an attempt to convey the ridiculous nature of the poll in question.
it just stuck around, and now you know...the rest of the story.
mmmmm...carrots. It's been awhile.
What?! Since when do we know longer do the electrocuting-the-nipples initiation?
Oh wait I see now...you said it's "like" an inititiation. I see what you mean...it IS like an initiation...except without the electricity...and the burn marks on your nipples.

Did you tell him just to make it so I didn't answer correctly?
We've got a couple of rows of carrots growing in the garden that should be done very soon, and then my family shall feast on carrots. The corn is coming along nicely, we've been getting tomatos for some time and will continue to get a lot more over the next several weeks. Quite a tomato patch really - 16 plants, 4 different kinds. (grape tomatoes / Big Boy / Early Girl / Yellow tomatoes) Squash has done well, cucumbers just starting to produce.... BUT - The carrots... soon we will have fresh from the garden carrots.
...I'm sorry - what where we talking about in this thread?
We've been buried with grape tomatos for the last 3 weeks. Most of our cukes have been harvested. We ignored the squash for too long and ended up with inedible gourds instead. Got some decent green bell peppers, and the cantaloupe plants are flowering with one melon already growing.
I wish we had planted carrots as well though. Will definitely have to put that on the list (as well as radishes, yummm, radishes) for next year.
heh. i figured by now he's already searched.
carrots are good for your eyesight.........
or do they make your hair go curly....... can't remember
I'm sure a carrot could do both, depending on how you used it!
For some reason I find this pic endlessly amusing.
I know: I have no idea why this dude was like "I'm gonna take a webcam shot of myself with some of my homegrown carrots, this will get the bitches, fo straight fo shizzm."
Just full of happy little phallic symbolism...
Ok, no bad feelings then.
