I guess I'm clutching at straws (Ah damn, that would have been a good one!) but I guess that's the price you pay for not having a theme or belonging to a genre.
I'm such a rebel...... um... anyway.
Get ready folks, because although this is a very weak letter C, I am about to fact you hard!
Yea, that's right. I'm facting anyone who come's on here and I'm not going to apologise for it.
Here it is ....
Carrots used to be purple.
That's right, purple. Not orange as you would expect to find todays common, everyday boring carrots, but super dooper fantastically brilliant purple.
A quick search on Google confirmed my twisted memory of this fact and there is indeed evidence that this humble root vegetable was once purple and was changed to orange by the Dutch or some such people because they liked the colour.
Way to go Holland!
And that my friends is an example of genetic modification. Changing the visual appearance of a vegetable FOREVER just because you like the colour is the sort of thing an evil megalomaniac would do, but this is the beautiful peoples of Holland here. Don't hate the Holland.
But the point stands. The definition of GM foods are those that have been altered by science and what nots... and that's what this is.
So next time a hippy or whoever starts on with themselves saying how GM foods will destroy the world you can now say "CARROTS!" to them.
when they stop and ask why you shouted carrots at them, your reply should be thus: "Aaaaah.. Carrots!". Remember to wiggle you finger at them and walk slowely backwards out of the room whispering the word carrots as you do.
This will make you a winner. Not for one day - but for ever!
