Blood from a turnip

Post by MAGNET on Fri Apr 02, 2010 1:08 am

I was reading in Scientific American an article regarding the cliche, "You can't get blood out of a turnip." Well, I was surprised at finding that you actually can.

Microscopically, when you squeezed the stem or break it, you actually can see fluid come out. They were saying that this fluid is the nurturing of the plant and determines its life cycle.

I used that line as an excuse to bill collectors, "Hey, you can't get blood out of a turnip so I'll pay you when I can. I'm broke from the floor up." Well, it don't work anymore. They took my entire income tax check.

So much for that!
