Uncle Badger’s lemon


Uncle B grew this here lemon. This is no mean feat in the UK, even in a greenhouse.

A bit unlovely on the outside, but it’s a perfectly cromulent lemon.

“What’s in a name?
“A rose by any other name would smell as cromulent!”
I had to look it up and then I had to use it in a sentence.

There is a lime shortage. Grow limes.

“Nevertheless since it was his, they et it, that’s what lemons is”

Congrats, wish I could manage to do something other than kill the lemon tree.

I growed a fungus under my toenail.

That’s about the best I’ve been able to manage.

“Cromulent”? Oliver Cromwell grew lemons? Huh. Did not know that.

Not being a strict Simpson’s fan I thought it was a careful nod to Conan’s “Crom!” though I didn’t think Crom specifically grew lemons.

turned out not. New word.

No worse than slithy vorpal swords demonstrating their jabberwock killing functionality I suppose.
At least it wasn’t a pack of consonants slammed together pretending to be a language.

Have a lemon tree with inedible fruit that idiots always steal. The lemons grow so large and with the pull of gravity they look like yuge grandma size pendulous breasts.
