From the “those blog people will post ANYTHING, won’t they” file

A tongue-in-cheek note accompanied the photo of recently harvested carrots from a Gatewood garden …


The e-mail subject line: AMAZING WEST SEATTLE CARROT. The text follows. Perhaps a flood of comments from insistent carrot lovers will force the gardeners to bask in their deserved spotlight.

We just pulled this pair of intertwined carrots from our garden in Gatewood and thought you should know about them. Feel free to publish this incredible photo on your blog — we have decided to keep it in the public domain and not pursue monetary rewards. In fact we humbly wish to remain anonymous.

    Monetary rewards? Yeah. Carrot porn generally brings top dollar on the open market.

    You people are all perverts and you’re going to end up in Tukwila when you die.

    Those carrots are wrestling – at least that’s what I told my kids when they saw the photo.

    I sent the picture along with some of the great comments to some of my friends and family.

    Comment from my son: “New euphemism for sex in West Seattle. Carrot Wrestling.”

    Reminds us of something we read while following Seattle news in the years between our first visit here as a tourist and our move here … around the turn of the ’90s, perhaps? … apparently some couple from Tukwila was quoted in one of the papers about their, um, frequency of, um, relations, and thereafter, the euphemism “Visiting Tukwila” apparently erupted.

Sorry, comment time is over.
