To Marrow, To Marrow

I’ll make a bet a couple of you know what a marrow is. To me it just looks like a giant cucumber. Poor Johhny Walker below, he looks to be struggling mightily:

Weightlifter Jonathan Walker from Harrogate poses as he lifts a marrow weighing 119lbs 12oz which won the Giant Marrow Class in the Harrogate Autumn Flower Show on Sept. 14, in Harrogate, England. The giant marrow was grown by Peter Glazebrook, from Newark, who won all six classes in the giant vegetable competition during the show at The Great Yorkshire Showground.

 Secret rumor alert: Peter Glazebrook’s theme song is the jingle from Annie. To marrow, to marrow, I’ll love ‘ya, to marrow. . .

Don’t Cry

They say that pet owners start to resemble their pets. Pete Glazebrook sort of looks like his prized vegetable:

Can you imagine cutting this onion up? Watery eye city. . .
