  1. No, seriously. This thread is about how awesome of a snack carrots are. I'm eating baby carrots (out of the bag, natch) with T. Marzetti's Buffalo Ranch Veggie-Dip. Fiberlicious!

    I, for one, was disillusioned when I learned that baby carrots are simply cut down and rounded big carrots.
  7. Ah, but what rhymes with carrot?

  8. Fed my kiddies lots of carrots when they were babies - turned them orange - which is so cool! Orange kids... I love it! Like having my very own couple of oompa-loompahs!

    Is this true?? What a scam. All this time I attributed their delicious taste to the fact they were "baby" carrots. I feel like such a sucker.:rollno:

    Yeah, like veal. Man is veal good. I love veal. Especially of the parmigiana variety. I think I'll pick up Chinese food tomorrow. Pork Egg Foo Yung (sp?!) is pretty good.

    PS: What is this "carrot" thing? I don't get it.

    I used to eat carrots regularly. I need to resurrect that habit.

    Carrots FTW.
  12. Now I just want to be clear here... is there some reason other then the fact that these are a delicious and nutritious snack that we bass players are discussing carrots? Like, for example;

    Eating carrots:
    • improves sight reading skills
    • makes you more attractive to members of the opposite sex
    • makes you more attractive to members of the same sex (don't wanna leave anyone out here...)
    • offers to chip in on gas money for rides to practice
    • makes fingertips supple and plucking friendly
    • give you that 'Jaco sound'

    Yeah, I was beginning to contemplate eating an actual baby until I found out that their being "baby" carrots had nothing to do with the great flavor.

    Love baby carrots plain, right out of the bag.

    Celery on the other hand, yucko.

    And I just ate a leg of leftover lamb. It was good.

    Screw carrots!
  18. The joke has to do with a whole series of polls that came out long ago in the dim ages. Before the Qintar. Before Zanderstarr, even. Back when bear and bison swarmed the forest and the prarie. It's become an in joke that has simply never gone away, even though there are maybe only 30-40 of us here to could remember it.

    I think it started with Angus. Didn't he post something about carrots?
