'Cauliflower Cult' Diet Gains Popularity

Just skimmed through this one quickly. Apparently, adherents keep the pounds off by consuming a diet rich in cauliflower (left), living in underground bunkers, and wearing gas masks.

I wonder if the water they took with them underground is fluorinated. That'd mess with their precious bodily fluids.

Why? Are they some kind of nuclear war nuts too?

Erm... no. I suspect Kenya's ballistic arsenal may amount to a couple dozen well-aimed coconuts. So they're not in any position to get into the fiery cauliflower game. Neither is North Korea, BTW. I was rather thinking of this guy (do a search for "bodily fluids" in the document).

Yeah, it's my favorite movie, but what does it have to do with the cauliflower diet??

Sorry. Personally I only distilled water, or rain water, and pure grain alcohol. I just thought the picture was a cauliflower when I found it.

You've got to be kidding me. You're not pulling my leg, are you?

'Cause if you are, it's a terrific joke. A cauliflower. Sorry, I'm not trying to be a smart-ass here. These guys also think it resembles a cauliflower. For me, the image you posted has become utterly unforgettable after I saw it in Peter Kuran's movie about the atomic program in America. Check it out if you have Netflix, they carry it. It's totally awesome.

A cosmic cauliflower, one of the Amazon reviewers calls it. I think your image is a pic of Shot Mike, the first thermo-nuclear explosion. That was one hot veggie.

Well, ok, by the time I posted it I realized it wasn't a real cauliflower. But it's what I thought when I first saw the article.

Actually it is neither a nuclear explosion or a cauliflower if you are Magritte.

Charles Bittinger, Ceci n'est pas une chou-fleur, oil on canvas. Right on, Gail.

Well, so it sounds like there's some really interesting controversy here. Some authorities believe it is a cauliflower, some believe it's the steam cloud from a thermonuclear weapon, some say neither. ("N'est-ce pas" means something like "absolutely," as in:
"C'est delicieux, n'est-ce pas?" "N'est-ce pas!")

So I think I deserve partial credit.
