Rape - $1.28 Per LB?

Recommended Posts


Rapeseed (Brassica napus), also known as rape, oilseed rape, rapa, rapaseed and (in the case of one particular group of cultivars) canola, is a bright yellow flowering member of the family Brassicaceae (mustard or cabbage family). The name derives from the Latin for turnip, rāpum or rāpa, and is first recorded in English at the end of the 14th century. Older writers usually distinguished the turnip and rape by the adjectives round and long(-rooted) respectively. See also Brassica napobrassica, which may be considered a variety of Brassica napus. Some botanists include the closely related Brassica campestris within B. napus.

But I agree, its pretty funny. Imagine someone looking in the refrigerator and saying, "I need to go get rape."

Ahh, I doubt this is a fail, because rape is rape (lol) and there is no other way to call this vegetable. (I mean, oilseed rape still contains rape). It's not Engrish, though I love that site, I don't think it qualifies to go there.

 

Good luck with Failblog, though I have sent in lots of fails, none ever made it to the voting pages or the front page.

 

Anyway your pic reminds me of this old favorite:

Rape isn't something that's funny

 

We are not trying to deny that rape is a grievous crime. However, it doesn't hurt to suspend that thought for a while and make a few jokes. No one ever said dark comedy should not be performed because it is insensitive. This thread doesn't even come close to being properly "dark" comedy.

Unfortunately for you, the point of the show is to lose weight, so the name is appropriate.

 

The truck rental algorithm is great. Pay $34 (17 for the truck and 17 for the man to drive it/load and unload it) and additional $17 for each man you want. Its not really a fail, just a good business model. (Allows for flexibility).
