Carrot Juice is Murder


My bloggy friend, Patti, who writes over at A New Day Dawns, sent me this video.  I suspect it is because she knows of my hatred of cooked carrots.  I can not stop laughing over it.  I hope that it makes you laugh and gives you something to think about the next time you eat a veggie.  I have printed the lyrics to this below the video so follow along and chime in if you want!!!  Thanks to The Arrogant Worms for the wonderful song and to the wonderful producer of the video!

Listen up brothers and sisters,
come hear my desperate tale.
I speak of our friends of nature,
trapped in the dirt like a jail.

Vegetables live in oppression,
served on our tables each night.
This killing of veggies is madness,
I say we take up the fight.

Salads are only for murderers,
coleslaw’s a fascist regime.
Don’t think that they don’t have feelings,
just cause a radish can’t scream.

Chorus:
I’ve heard the screams of the vegetables (scream, scream, scream)
Watching their skins being peeled (having their insides revealed)
Grated and steamed with no mercy (burning off calories)
How do you think that feels (bet it hurts really bad)
Carrot juice constitutes murder (and that’s a real crime)
Greenhouses prisons for slaves (let my vegetables go)
It’s time to stop all this gardening (it’s dirty as hell)
Let’s call a spade a spade (is a spade is a spade is a spade)

I saw a man eating celery,
so I beat him black and blue.
If he ever touches a sprout again,
I’ll bite him clean in two.

I’m a political prisoner,
trapped in a windowless cage.
Cause I stopped the slaughter of turnips
by killing five men in a rage

I told the judge when he sentenced me,
This is my finest hour,
I’d kill those farmers again
just to save one more cauliflower

Chorus

How low as people do we dare to stoop,
Making young broccolis bleed in the soup?
Untie your beans, uncage your tomatoes
Let potted plants free, don’t mash that potato!

I’ve heard the screams of the vegetables (scream, scream, scream)
Watching their skins being peeled (fates in the stirfry are sealed)
Grated and steamed with no mercy (you fat gormet slob)
How do you think that feels? (leave them out in the field)
Carrot juice constitutes murder (V8’s genocide)
Greenhouses prisons for slaves (yes, your composts are graves)
It’s time to stop all this gardening (take up macrame)
Let’s call a spade a spade (is a spade, is a spade, is a spade, is a spade…..

    I loved the song and laughed as all the pictures of what torture the veggies go through because of us were shown. I will continue to eat them anyway because I like almost any veggie and they are good for you. It was a very well done song which I enjoyed hearing.

  3. How funny! V8’s genocide–LOL–what a hoot. Happy weekend, my friend.
    Hugs,

    OMG too funny— I had the urge to scream…Take this all you Vegans! and Peta’s! while pumping my arm in the air!

    • It is hysterical, isn’t it?? I loved it and kept playing it until my husband put his foot down and said “either use your headphones or stop playing it”. !!!!
