The Adventures of Pants Carrot
December 18, 2009
My Prestidigitating Suitor and I went to the Union Square Greenmarket to drop off the compost that had been composting for quite some time in his apartment. While there, we noticed many strange species of vegetable. I was finally prompted to make a purchase when I saw…
A CARROT THAT LOOKS LIKE PANTS!
I bought it from Keith’s Farm. There were some other funny-looking carrots as well. Turns out carrots come in all the United Colors of Benetton!
I had some Freshdirect carrots at home already, and when juxtaposed, the Greenmarket carrots looked like tasty little weirdos and the Freshdirect carrots looked like the vegetable equivalent of a big plastic Ken doll.
Here is Pants Carrot posing with Hand Turkey. Hand Turkey is based on my hand, with the addition of a caruncle and wattle drawn by the Prestidigitating Suitor.
After taking these photos, I gave Pants Carrot to my math bee co-host Soce the Elemental Wizard, since he was having a frisée-themed party for his birthday. Naturally.
