"It is not the first time the carrot has been tampered with."Fortunately, like Superted (SuperTed? sUpErTeD?), nature is dull and useless - it turns out - at actually keeping us healthy. Can you imagine a children's cartoon all about... well, a stuffed, rejected and lifeless bear? No you can't, and neither can I.
So afore-mentioned spotty extra-terrestrial cacti (or "scientists") are generally Our Only Hope, which is pretty much just as depressing as having Luke Skywhiner as your saviour.
In an attempt to redress Nature's unwieldy and untenable PR position, I'm off to rub organic dead hamsters in my face and drink some thatchweaved mud.
