Scientific exploration

So.., When they tell me you can't get blood out of a turnip, naturally, I have to try.
Well. it ain't easy, but it can be done.
Takes a lot of pressure, you don't get much blood, and the turnip ends up looking all anemic and wrinkly.
But it can be done, you don't get much, though .
What you'd want turnip blood for anyway, I can't imagine.
What are you gonna do with it?
You can do it at home.
Best not to try it at the breakfast table, though.

I'd 've thought that would be as thorough a scientific exploration as any. And the findings? I can make up my own mind, can't I?

Great take on the prompt.
Many of us are keying on
the blood, some on the
lemon, but you jumped flat-
footed on the tuber. Your
mind exists in places mostly
unvisited by most. I love it.

Love this take... turning tuberous in your endeavor, lending to the blood orange.

But can you get tomato ketchup out of a lemon? Or should I say, do you personally approve of someone hoping to get ketchup out of a lemon before you risk publishing the comment?

Hallo, Lane!!
Congratulations on getting sooooo many respondents to this blog!!!!
My suggestion (that I do NOT recommend!!!) is to cut your finger while slicing the turnip.
Turnips (but not blood!!) taste great!

Yeah, Buttkus is supposed to be the big poet, and he never gets even a dozen responses. I'm sure he is envious as hell.

Poets write because they have to.
They are not looking for adoration,
pats on the back, remuneration.
