THERE were two carrots, who were the best of friends. One day, they were walking down the street, and just as they stepped off the kerb to cross the street a car came speeding around the corner and ran one of the carrots over.
The unhurt carrot called an ambulance and helped his friend as best he could. When the ambulance arrived, they whisked the injured carrot away to hospital.
The other carrot sat in the waiting room while his friend was operated on. After many hours of agonised waiting, the doctor finally came out. He walked over to the distraught carrot and said: “I have good news, and I have bad news. The good news is that your friend is going to pull through.”
“What’s the bad news, doc?” the carrot asked.
“The bad news is that he’s going to be a vegetable for the rest of his life.”
