Vita-Man, the PC, Organic, Hippie Super Hero! & Top 10


   
    The Obligatory Top 10 Juvenile Comments

    1.       EAT ME!
    2.       Just veggin’ out
    3.       You are what you eat
    4.       Hmmm…he looks a little seedy to me
    5.       Just stay out of the hot tub, Stew.
    6.       Mr. Bean I presume?
    7.       You are the apple of my eye…and the grape, the artichoke, the cabbage, etc.
    8.       He’s in a vegetative state
    9.       Man cannot live by bread alone
  10.      If Dr. Frankenstein was a gardener…


A Modern Day Super-hero

Faster than a runner bean
More powerful than garlic-breath
Able to leap tall sunflowers in a single bound,
Look, out in the garden!
It’s a fruit!
it’s a vegetable!
it’s Vita-Man!

*Vita-Man can frequently be found coming to the aid of the food police, or baking organic pumpkin-flax seed muffins.  As a super-hero he is truly outstanding in his field.


With my apologies to Tess at The Mag and  Klaus Enrique Gerdes, the creator of the image which inspired this folly.
