Our friend , Betacarodine, after working 26 years at the V8 juice factory admitted to a long intimate affair with Tullia Tomatocheeks when doctors diagnosed him with a severe case of "the snails". To get around the availability of DDT he has chosen to retreat to Canada for a three week dosage. Ms Tomatocheeks is wanted for questioning regarding the recent passage of Mr. Potatohead.

This is why we don't put a stem cell research lab next to a Miracle Grow factory, one little oops, somebody fertilizes their vegetables, and you really end up with a harvest to brag about.

Running out of ideas, Stan Lee introduces his new comic book superhero Vegi-man, armed with his anti-oxidant ray gun. Episode 2 introduces his sidekick, Fruit Boy :

We won't discuss what his weapon can do to your fruit.

REAL MEN don't eat, OR wear salad. (or for that matter: quiche, either).

Anyway, that salad needs to be tossed, somehow, someways, somewhere....anywhere... outta here.....

However, all said, he must be a lot of fun at parties.
