My husband and I are trying to find just the right vegetable in the frig to  
put on Ebay.   Wondering what a Bell Pepper looks like to some  folks...

Nothing, of course, could come close in cultural  significance to such a 
carrot.  But I think it's worth mentioning,  before I depart for the 
auld sod, that I turned on the close captioning  while watching the end 
of "Gilmore Girls"--my daughters' favorite show--and  found that someone 
was typing gibberish.  I hear well enough, but I  think it was public 
radio that reported this week the number of exemptions  granted by the 
Bush administration from the federal mandate to provide  captioning.  
Apparently once exemptions are granted, gibberish is  riding like a 
clapped-out Ferrari behind.
