There were two carrots walking down the road, a big carrot and a little carrot. On the other side of the road they see their friend cabbage in his cabbage patch.
Big carrot says: “Let’s go visit cabbage on the other side of the road.”
Little carrot says: “But there is so much traffic here I’m afraid I might get run over.”
Big carrot says: “Nonsense, just wait for a break in the traffic and run as fast as you can.”
Big carrot sees a break in the traffic and runs over to cabbage. He then calls to is friend to try. Little carrot gets ready, sees a break in the traffic and runs across the road. Unfortunately there was a big truck coming and little carrot gets squashed in the middle of the road. Big carrot feels really bad and scoops his friend up and takes him to the hospital. The doctors perform emergency surgery.
After several hours the doctor comes out. “I have some good news and some bad news.”
Big carrot says: “Ok doc, go ahead, I can take it.”
The doctor says, “Well the good news is that your friend is going to live, but the bad news is he’s going to be a vegetable for the rest of his life.”.
