Used with permission

Here is an existential dilemma if ever there was one.  I cannot stand Garrison Kiellor, but I cannot resist jokes about rutabaga.  The word rutabaga itself is just too funny; I guess funny won out.  Maybe ‘ol Garrison drank some rutabaga-ade before making that terrible movie a few years ago.  It must have tasted like-er–well…rutabaga.  😀   For more on rutabaga, including information on national rutabaga month, check out this crazy site…  The Rutabagan
