WWE, 9/19/12, Cucumbers

The townspeople say I’m mad, but I’m not really crazy.  Just scared.  That day haunts my dreams, leaving me housebound; afraid to go outside.  When I look out the window, my day mares begin.

It all started when I invited the towns folks to see my lovely garden.  One of them screamed, saying, “It’s got his leg.”  Then they all screamed and ran away, leaving me wondering why my ankle was aching.  I looked down and a vine had wrapped around my foot and began constricting my ankle.  Quickly I pulled my machete from my jeans pocket and hacked it away, but there was still vine on my leg.  I ran inside and started pulling it off my leg and at the same time it grew cucumbers.  Finally, I got it off and slung it out the back door.

Winter’s on now.  Snow covers the ground, yet they grow.

And here I thought Veggie Tales were about nice vegetables.  Why are mine attacking people?  How are they growing in the winter?
Then I got an idea.  Larry Boy could save me.


I just had to make a Larry Boy light signal.

That night I was set. Ready to fight cucumbers with cucumbers.

He came in with his plunger ears yelling, “I am that hero.”  I knew all would be well.  He’s defeated rumor weeds, bad apples, and a slew of other plant creatures.

In no time at all he wiped out my garden.  The only problem is, I was so hungry that when he came in to tell me all was safe I had a cucumber salad.  Oops.

The End ;)
