Freak Turnip Weighs 95 Pounds

“A Welsh gardener set a world record by growing a Swedish turnip weighing in at 95 pounds, 3 1/2 pounds heavier than the previous record vegetable.

Ian Neale, 68, of Newport said he spends as much as 70 hours each week tending to his garden.”


Anybody who spends 70 hours each week tending to his garden doesn’t have a life. At the most I spend a few hours each week tending to my garden; I have other fish to fry.

But pampering his monstrous turnip gives this old coot meaning to his life. I bet his wife is glad he is fooling around in the garden and not farting around the house.

I hate turnips, the sight of a 95-pound turnip would make me nauseous. I’m glad that freak of nature isn’t growing in my yard.
