Oedipus (with vegetables)

Amanda, how I love you. This far exceeds anything I ever did with hand puppets.

How ironic that Oedipus carries with him the tool of his own demise. I found it odd at first that he killed the Broccoli Creon with a potato peeler, but now it makes perfect sense.

But however did broccoli and an apple give birth to a potato?

I only wish he had shouted "Myyyy Eyeeeees!" at the moment of his self blinding.

I am off to put this on my own blog. You are a genuis, ma'am.

Um, I think my computer has a problem with this post. All I have is a large blank space under the title.

I am intrigued, however, by Jennifer's comment and would enjoy experience Oedipus with vegetables.

Sorry to be a Greek theater nerd, but Oedipus didn't kill Creon. Lyus was the father of Oedipus. Creon was the uncle/brother-in-law of Oedipus, and he survived well into the action of the play Antigone.

That's the way it happened in the human being version of the play, anyway.

The potato peeler part, however, is completely accurate.
