Blue Strawberry – OMP!

10 Nov

 OMP!  There I was this weekend, working on my laptop minding my own business since mom/dad deserted me and took Bashful on an adventure.  That’s when I found this little bit of information on-line.  I almost lost my piggy mind!  We all know how much I love my strawberries around here at the Hotel Thompson.  Heck, the more the merrier.  But now Japan has done and did it.  They have genetically mutated a BLUE strawberry.  Squeals!  Now, one part of me thinks how exciting and I would love to try one.  While the other part of me, all I can think about is Violet from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory – snorts with piggy laughter.  What do you think?

    They aren’t quite real. There apparently are no blue strawberries available for purchase. They are developing strawberries, using fish genes, that have new properties and they appear blue, apparently. But not this sort of blue. At least that is what I am reading online . . . .

    hmmmm… one one hand they look great, specially together with vanilla ice… butt I have no clue why they are blue… maybe tentacle or horns will grow on our heads after we eat that strawberries…(oh and wait aren’t thet therotecially blueberries now?) … guess what? I eat the ice cream and my momma can eat the strawberries, that’s a good deal :o)

      Snorts with piggy laughter. I didn’t think about that brother. I don’t think I need an extra tail or Lord forbid those horns grow out of my head for real – snorts. Yeah, I’ll let my dad have them. XOXO – Bacon

    The words genetically mutated do not spell tasty. There is a good reason there is no blue food in nature. Bleck.

    I’m so glad you have online liberties when you’ve been abandoned, giving you the opportunity to find and share these treasures.

    I prefer my strawberries unmodified, please. Unless whipped cream is considered a modification. 😉
