And here I was thinking that it would just be shaped like a dong. EXPECTATIONS EXCEEDED!

Don't forget the radish's friend, the coquettish yam.

This news item must be a welcomed one for Hyogo prefecture, which is in the spotlight for a series of grisly murders and corpse-concealment incidents allegedly perpetrated by a 64-year-old woman on her family and in-laws in the town of Amagasaki.

"Is your radish running?"
"What?"
"Well, you better go catch it then!"

(Yeah, I got nothing.)

If only it had a tutu - it's executing a nearly perfect grand jete!

My favorite is the radish walking/running the Shiba Inu. That reminds me, aren't we due for a new Puppy Cam?

If this had happened in the US, we'd have endless CNN reports about an apparition of the Virgin Mary's fat ass.

Me: "So is it true you don't eat meat?"

Vegetarian: "Yes, I think it's cruel and inhumane to eat other living things."

Me: "But wait, plants are living things too."

Vegetarian: "Yes, and that's why I only eat radishes."

Me: "But... why radishes?"

Vegetarian: "Because I absolutely hate radishes."

...ish.

Also, this makes me think of Cactuars from Final Fantasy. All it needs is the little face.

That radish ain't running, it's doing a root march.

In Sarajevo I purchased a horse-radish root shaped like a very large humanmale organ. it was fun acting like I totally did not notice the resemblence. I am sure the large hairy Četnik I bought it from embarrassed many less timid souls with that plant part.

First the eye leeches, and now anthropomorphic food? This place is quickly turning into my own personal NightmareFilter. Cover me in snakes, just keep the dancing cookies far, far away.

Room 641-A, are you talking about the gingerbread men? With their cold frosting eyes, their razor-sharp icing teeth, and their irresistable samba dancing?

Yeah, they're pretty terrifying.

Brings back pleasant memories of Dokonjo Daikon (in whose honor I made this).

Very funny. Well, the joke's on you, because I'm not going to sleep anymore.
