Violent Vegetables, Gotta Love Them!

"The carrots had a pea up against a wall....."

 Several years ago I was browsing for a greetings card in local shop when I came across the "Violent Veg" series of greetings cards. I was instantly enchanted by the brilliant wit and humour that had been present in the personality of the person or people designing these cards. You can imagine my delight when I found out tonight that they have an online website where you can buy the full range of their cards, many of which I hadn't seen before. I decided I would share these with you as I am sure you will love them as much as I do, plus they make a great alternative to conventional greetings cards as well as being very reasonably priced.

Thanks B.T. they are really witty and clever aren't they! I lay in bed last night trying to come up with similar ideas of my own for cards, but the best I managed was the old joke about the "Damson in distress, who was in a bit of a jam...."
