My First Okra.

So I was a bit misinformed about my garden. I was looking at the Oprah plants and, while impressed by the fact they towered over me, I was a little unsure how those plants were actually going to support an obscenely wealthy talk show host. And what if this happened?

But we have OKRA plants. Not Oprah plants. Poor choice, I think. Oprah might have given us all cars.

HERE is an OKRA:


Even my sissy is curious, though I think she thinks it is something for playing fetch.


I admit I'm not the biggest fan of the okras. But my ma ape likes to make gumbo, or bindi masala, or she just rolls them in cornmeal and spices and pan-fries 'em. And I say, the more Okras she eats, the more Wallymelon left over for me.

Hey Wally,
I dunno what Okras are but we call them LADYFINGERS here in Singapore. It's slimy inside with mush like thingy and some seeds right?
Mom says usually we cook them in some spicy chilli or coat them with some tempura batter to fry them.

My your sissy's nose is big! Do you think she could some how employ it in ridding the world of Tom Cruises. There seem to be too many of them.

Maybe she could slap him with an Oprah ... I mean Okra.

You may snot know this but without Newfs there would be no okra. Newf drool is pumped through the Earth into the roots of the plant and is extruded into the pod. We are symbiotes with the okra plant. Practically midichlorians. Hmmm... Maybe I'll write this up in more detail in my blog...

Anyway, Wally, you are one cool dude and we'll visit your blog lots!

Yeah, what was wrong with Tom Cruise? He's one sadistic maniac! I pawsonally don't like him that much nor does my mommy coz we both find his smile very stuck up & his eyes... Why does he always makes his eyes like that? His acting's not that great too anyway...

Hey, those are Okrah or ladies Fingers? Well, whatever it is, I hate veggies!

Love licks,
