Finally a carrot related joke (and why not): A couple of carrots are driving in a car together when they get into an accident. The ambulance comes and takes them to the hospital. The wife is okay, she only has some minor cuts and bruises, but the husband is really bad off. They wheel him into surgery and work on him for hours. Finally the doctor comes out and walks up to the wife carrot who has been sitting in the waiting room. He says to her, “Well, as you know we’ve been working on your husband for awhile and we think he’s going to be okay physically, but I’m afraid he’s going to be a vegetable the rest of his life.”
