A highly questionable source of vitamin… anything (something tells me the FDA would not approve). From the, “Honey… you’ll never guess what the neighbor is spray-painting now!” series of randomness.

Robert, it’s too pretty to eat! Perhaps, I can wear it on my head instead. It could make a lovely hat! It’s quite lovely. I’ll be the envy of the town.
Hahaha… that’s too funny, Amy! And I suspect you could pull it off, too! Heck… you could probably even do an interpretive dance while wearing it! I have no doubt you would receive rave reviews! 🙂
I never knew they had broccoli on Mars.
HA! It must be imported.
Would you eat it?
Hahaha… well… um… maybe if I could find a good recipe…
Eh. Who am I kidding?! I wouldn’t go anywhere near that thing.
“No GMO’s” I’m sure ‘:-)
Hahaha… now… I’m sure this is… 100%… natur…. um… er…
As Newman would say . . . “Foul Weed!”
*gritting teeth in Jerry-esque fashion*
Someone hand me the Pepto Bismol. 🙂 Oh, wait.
Have a great Labor Day, SIG!
Hahaha… Pepto Infused Broccoli! YUMMMMM!!!
Many thanks, Ms. C! I hope you have a great one, too!
I have never seen such broccoli How unique although I’m not sure the taste 🙂
I agree! Something tells me this would not taste very good!
I am all for eating plenty of
broccoli but not the pink variety 🙂 lol
It definitely looks good though
regardless of the pansy colouring 🙂
Have a superb
rest of Monday SIG 🙂
It is a unique look, isn’t it, Andro?! Just between you and me I actually spray-painted this yellow… but I decided it looked too natural / just a bit like some very old broccoli (so I cheated a bit and changed the yellow to a pink – because I thought it seemed like one of the least likely colors you would find it being in nature).
Your logic ruled the day and with it, you produced this fine example of your creativity, sometimes an artist has to step back from the canvas to truly appreciate the subject, and you have triumphed my great friend 🙂
Have a brilliant Tuesday SIG 🙂
Very kind of you to say, sir! Thank you so much!
Hahaha… looking at things like this… it might do me a bit of good to step away from the paint-fumes every now and then, too! 🙂
Yes I remember once spraying my friends car without a mask on, and you would be amazed at the rubbish I was singing 😦 Still it was cheaper than going to the pub afterwards 🙂 lmao
Have a superb rest of Hump Day SIG 🙂
I don’t eat broccoli, I hate it.. Even if I like your version of it… I wouldn’t eat it anyway. 😉
I know many people who feel that way! I don’t mind eating broccoli too much (well, the non-spray-painted kind, anyway). I like it much better covered in melted cheese, though (although there aren’t many foods I don’t like better covered in melted cheese)!
Now I’m curious… wonder how that would taste. Broccoli covered with melted cheese. Maybe I’ll try it some day. 😉
Of course, cheese is almost always the best part, so since broccoli isn’t your favorite, you can just skip that part entirely! 🙂
So that means that there will only be the cheese for me… ;D
I’m fortunate my boys are good eaters and eat their broccoli without a fuss. My daughter, however, may start eating her greens if they are pink! Fabulous edits and brilliant creativity Robert! Best, Robyn
That does sound fortunate! I don’t mind broccoli… of course I like it much better submerged in melted cheese (but that’s how I feel about a lot of foods, really)!
Many thanks, Robyn! I appreciate that very much!
Barbie might like it 🙂
HA! Too funny! That had not occurred to me (maybe if I was more of a ‘typical’ Ken).
I wonder if more kids would eat their broccoli if it came in fun colors. I like how it looks like a miniature tree, when you don’t see it as a vegetable.
That’s a very good question, Patti! That could very well be! It seems like bright color is a fairly typical marketing strategy at a lot of things that are geared towards kids… that might just work!
Very true! I was thinking the same thing (well, before I spray-painted it, anyway).
Ok, now this is bizzare! If you would have not told me that it was in a pink glass, I would have figured you painted the broccoli!
You guessed right! Absolutely! I did indeed paint this (spray-paint). Gloss yellow, originally (but I didn’t think it looked quite ‘unnatural’ enough, so I cheated and changed the yellow paint pink in Photoshop).
That still isn’t going to make me eat it!
Ha! Me, neither.
Candy floss broccoli! I’d eat that!
Now ya talkin
And a brave Loon, too!
You are a very brave Wombie, sir!
Why, thank you! Very much!
Seriously…this was perfect for a Pretty in Pink quote.
BLAST! I knew I was forgetting something!
Love that pink SiG! It looks like something you might see in a book of medical illustrations . . ..
It kind of does look… physiological-ish, doesn’t it, Ms. K?! I didn’t realize that at first… but I had started to think the very same thing.
The colour is great and I love broccoli but I don’t think I could bring myself to indulge in this delicacy. Coloured cauliflower seems popular and I find it quite unappetizing as well. I like my veggies the colour God intended them. Don’t I sound right wing! Just about my veggies.
Some varieties of coloured cauliflower are heritage varieties others are only available in aisles of the Photo-Shop.
‘Clean-up on workspace three…’
Hahaha… well, it might look a bit off… but let me tell you the smell is… um… yeah. The smell wasn’t so great either. Um… as you were.
Went to the Fair
had Pink Broccoli Floss.
Stuck to my beard and teeth.
Your post gets the Mid-way grand prize. 🙂
You are most kind, sir!
Hahaha… I was afraid this one might find itself in a House of Horrors!
Saw the photo and knew I would be entertained by the comments 🙂
love every visit to your blog!
Many thanks, LB! Hahaha right?! The folks who stop by this joint are the best!
Will never get tired of seeing things spraypainted. Especially this color. We had a garden growing up, and one night, a worm crawled out of the broccoli as my mom was washing it before dinner. After that, the garden got turned into a pen for my 4-H pigs.
That’s a bit of a relief, U.M…
because… you know… when I forget something in the crisper drawer for a little (or a lot) too long…
very cool. Now if it’s cotten candy flavor I might try this broccli. Might,
Many thanks, J.B! Hahaha… you are braver than I am, my friend!
Brilliance on your behalf as usual! I’m a sucker for pink and this was a really neat idea.
How kind of you to say! Thank you very, very much! To tell you the truth, I originally spray-painted it yellow (because that’s all I happened to have on hand at the time)… but once I pulled it into Photoshop it didn’t take too long before I decided I liked the pink a lot better on this one, too.
clever. but kids, don’t eat this at home! 🙂
What P&K said! For display purposes only, kids!
So photosynthesis makes green and Photoshop makes pink??
Hahaha… unless it’s autumn. Then things get really out of hand.
Spray painted? dipped in beetroot juice? genetically modified? Or it sucked all your blood???
HA! Oh, no! I hope this isn’t some kind of ‘Twilight’ thing!
I think you need to chat with Tony about a Super-Broccoli Cartoon 🙂
Hahaha… well… maybe it would be best to rethink that title…
What happens if every broccoli turns into pink?
Oh, Robert! I somehow managed to get unsubscribed to your blog. 😦
I had a bit of a break and I’m now trying to catch up and suddenly I realised I hadn’t any posts of yours in my inbox. So sorry, my friend.
To the matter at hand: I love this image! You do the most wonderful things with fruit and vegetables! 😀
No worries, S.E, really! You know what’s funny is (although I don’t subscribe to blogs because I get a bit confused by that whole set-up), but I’m pretty sure I’ve set some kind of record for most times a W.P. user has accidentally subscribed and immediately un-subscribed from their own blog!
