How could we ever forget to make an appreciation thread for the heart and soul of Moleman humour?:D

  • Aw hell no! You mean "Cucumbers Cut Sidewise Appreciation Thread"

    These things are evil

  • That picture has made me feel like eating a/some cucumber. This is the first time that I have ever felt like eating cucumber. I don't dislike cucumber, but this is the first time I have ever thought 'hey, I feel like eating cucumber'.

  • Such is the awesome power of cucumbers cut lengthwise, my friend.

  • Aye, that was the first thought that crossed my mind afterward :D.

  • These things should NEVER have recieved an appreciation thread.

  • Are cucumbers a fruit or a vegetable?

  • @Hayden said: Are cucumbers a fruit or a vegetable?

    I nevers asked this myself, but I find this interesting enough:
    Wikipedia:
    Having an enclosed seed and developing from a flower, botanically speaking, cucumbers are classified as fruits. However, much like tomatoes and squash they are usually perceived, prepared and eaten as vegetables.
    And Wikipedia is probably written by molemen too: :)

  • Yeah, seriously, the whole fruit/vegetable thing is often very fuzzy, we mostly say "fruit" if we primarily eat it for dessert and "vegetable" if we primarily eat it as a side dish.

    Also, I think figs and artichokes are actually flowers.

    Anyways, I love cucumber. My favourite way to have it is "a la Cowabunga"... Am I the only person who uses that expression? Actually, is it Kowabunga? Anyways... You hold the cucumber, full, in your weaker hand, and a big knife in the main hand. Both held up in the air, with a plate on bowl in front of you on a table or something.

    Then you yell "Kowabunga!" and slash a piece from the cucumber, and it falls in the dish. And then you eat it (with the skin on).

    When I was a kid, my dad did all the parts up to eating it.

  • What about pickles? They are cucumbers, and commonly cut lengthwise.

    Well, only for peaches and kiwi fruit. (And stuff that's been left in my fridge for too long.)

    With my luck, I would end up serving my thumb. (with the skin still on).
