It Exists In Theory

So the Missus and I were having breakfast this morning, with Epicurious on the TV. Because I'm all Iraq war and baseballed out. As we are watching a recipe, an ingredient triggers me to question a common saying. It's a saying that has declined in usage, still you hear it often enough that it never seems to go out of style. This, despite the fact that I doubt that anyone has seen one in years.

Just like a UFO, I doubt anyone would admit to seeing one of these, yet they most certainly exist somewhere.



So I ask you, just where is this turnip truck that everyone denies falling off of?

Once the South rises again you'll see them everywhere, I reckon.

I did a google image search for it...didn't really find anything, but I'm sure they are driving it around somewhere (the same "they" in the "They say 'insert random factoid here'" infamy)

Beth,

L (gasping for air) O (still can't breathe) L!

Brat,

You're welcome.

Chelene,

As long as they play Wagner's "Die Walkure" as they swarm the country.

"I love the smell of bumpkins falling off the truck. It smells like...turnips."

Zombie,

Thanks for stopping by.

Damn, if Google can't find them, then they truly don't exist.
