    "i was really bored with 4 string back in '92, and i almost quit. i saw the bass player magazine give away of a bill conklin 7 string and i thought "hot carrots! that's the bass for me!" so i called bill up and the rest, well, the rest is history i've never played 5 or 6 strings, and i haven't played 4's since i got my first 7, in '93." - John Turner

    Also, When polls started just getting run into the ground back in the day, i mean, EVERY FREAKING THREAD had a FREAKING POLL. JT would edit the poll so it had the option of "Carrots" meaning, "Who gives a rat's @$$" or to click if you were just sick of polls.
  8. Fresh carrot sticks dipped in Ranch dressing??

    yep, back in the day, you had to _earn_ the carrots option in your poll. mainly by posting a lame poll.

    And nowadays <i>(as we now know how lame all polls are!)</i> we just save JT the trouble and put carrots-option there ourselves :p
  13. there's 2 theories...

    1) on the 8th day, the lord said " let there be carrots " and * poofy * there they were

    2) they were evolved out of small single-cellular entities
  14. I have this pet carrot that's soooooooo cute.. I got it for my last birthday.. ..I think it's a male..

  15. I think I should clarify. The option added to polls was "I like carrots". It was funny like that. Later, people started adding stuff to describe the poll, such as "the carrot colored one". And then, we had carrots.
  16. or 4 year bumps of silly threads?
