2/16/2003: Vegetable orchestra



These are just a few of the instruments used by the First Vienna Vegetable Orchestra. Aside from foods, the orchestra allows itself the use of kitchen implements, but that's it.

Are they serious? Of course! Here's the Yahoo News link:

http://uk.news.yahoo.com/030214/80/dt8gh.html

And here's the group's site:

http://www.gemueseorchester.org

According to the story, after the concert the "used" instruments are tossed into a big ol' pot and cooked up into a soup that is enjoyed by the audience.

That's the only part of the story I'm not down with. It's just not hygenic. I don't see any spit valves on this stuff.

If only the EU allowed genetically engineered food, they could really fill out the orchestra nicely.

And another thing: I don't see any beans here, and everyone knows they are the musical fruit. The more you eat, the more you toot.

The spit adds to the flavor ...

Hopefully the cooking temperature of the soup/stew is sufficient to kill anything nasty.

I believe those are leeks.

I can envision two possible uses for the tissue-paper like leaves.

One the comb-and-tissue paper ... there may be some kitchen implement that you could wrap the leaves around ...

The other would be to use it as a vibrating reed in the "grass stem between the thumbs whistle".

Technical questions.

What kind of AMP do you plug an electric leek into?(get your eyes off my dangling participle) i don't imagine you could crank the gain too high without getting weed n' feedback.

Hell, I'm not eating it either ... are you KIDDING??

Ick.

Not only are they USED vegetables, they're, well, VEGETABLES ... (blech, ptooey, greenstuff, etc.)

I know one thing ... they wouldn't get away with this in a civilized country like America ... nosiree ... we have food safety standards in this country, buddy ... only time we get spit in OUR food here is when we insult the waiter or send our food back to the kitchen for any reason.

Veggies are not food. Veggies are what food eats. (stolen from somewhere)

Oh my god... letscho74.mp3 sounds like they are using all their vegetable instruments to flog a cow to death. Maybe some people can find that stuff entertaining, but not me. And personally I would not want the drool of 8 strangers in my soup, no matter how hot it was cooked.

But better than playing a moldy squash.

I think you underestimate just how bored these people have to be to want to carve vegetable instruments *in the first place*.

Each new carving is probably an orgasmic experience for these folks...

Yes, just keep repeating this mantra while carving...

"Ribbed for her pleasure...Ribbed for her pleasure...Ribbed for her pleasure"

A moderate washboard pattern should do the trick.:p
