cutlery for the rape festival

Cutting-edge agriculture:
A woman protecting herself from the sun with an umbrella walks past a giant fork and knife in a field of yellow rape May 11 at the Adlersberg monastery near Regensburg, Germany. The oversized flatware was erected for a rape blossom festival.

    rape blossom?

  2. giles says:

    Do rape blossom festivals exist in a diametric relationship with cherry blossom festivals?

    Man, I have a headful of the most off-color puns ever. So, does the "rape blossom festival" celebrate rape?

    And if that's a field of rape, does that mean it's a rape field (by analogy to baseball field, soccer field, etc)?

    And, wow, that woman's surrounded by rape. That doesn't seem safe.

    (Oh god, I'm going to hell for this. Dammit, where's hep when I need her? Her and I spent most of a party once sitting in the corner making loud rape jokes just to see what the other partygoers would do.)

    It's like a party for my eyes . . . and the guests of honor are Christo, Jeanne-Claude, Oldenburg, and Van Bruggen!

    Were you making this up, or was your choice of music inspired by the article? OR are you just unable to let a good pun pass you by?

      I cheated a little -- it was 3 songs away on the playlist and I bumped it up. But I find that dj random is often chock full o' synchronicity like that.

    Okay, how did I know that when there were ten comments on this story already, they were all going to be about rape and not the photo?

    • jwz says:

      Oh, I know! Is it -- because I so often post pictures of pretty flowers?

      • gregv says:

        What, no one can think of anything clever to say about giant silverware? You people just aren't trying!
