Turnip Tinsel and Tears

I went bowling. And won a turnip.

Not just any turnip. Possibly the biggest turnip in the world. Certainly as big as the bowling ball I consistently guttered. Thinking about it, I'd have had more success if I'd bowled the turnip.

It's going to feed me for Christmas.

I shall start with Roast Turnip and all the trimmings. Cold turnip salad, turnip stew, curried turnip, turnip and squeak, turnip sandwiches and turnip soup.
Turnip is the new turkey.
Turkey is redundant, which coincidentally, am I. Just as well I've got root vegetable experience.

Oh no. Sorry to hear it. You must use the time off to write the Great English Novel.

Glad you have a turnip, sorry you haven't a job. I guess it is all part of the great balance of the universe.
Hope things work out for you.

I concur.

Is the world going completely mad?

This won't help you, but I bowled a 117 and a 127 last night. Many times I had to throw turnips as a followup to my ball, but if my ball worked better, turnips wouldn't have been necessary. I'm frequently amazed at how little appreciation, respect, and recognition receive these days, and I want to thank you for posting about them, and helping to raise turnip awareness.
