Default Stupid Question on Broccoli

No, not a Victory Garden or anything. Here's the thing -- I keep seeing avatars with broccoli. Talking broccoli stalks, broccoli hair, broccoli in the mouth... No, really Doctor, I'm telling you -- it's all over the place here.

What does this mean (be nice!)? Am I missing the joke? Am I the only one who's noticed this!?

I didn't know where else to post this but most here seem pretty bright.

OK, let's get on with the chiding, but I'm serious.



Note: no broccoli was harmed in the forming of this inquiry.

Through the advertising program the Obama Administration is developing a subliminal craving for Broccoli among the American people. So they can tax it in 2013 as part of the medical portion and benifits of the Obama Health Bill.

This actually started as a forum joke. A member was dieting and his one real devil was sourdough bread. He lamented to his fellow Supporting Members he was having a hard time. He logged out for the night and when he logged in the next morning, everyone had a Sourdough Bread Avatar.

From there it grew into Avatar week that was hosted by a great former member.

It's kind of a unity thing that the SM's do from time to get the junior and senior members thinking and to show that FTF has a "group" feel to it instead of everyone against everyone.....

Someone chose broccoli this time.
