Posting this here rather than Writing Exercises, etc as it's hardly writing-related but is silly enough for Office Party.

Tell us your favourite books, movies, quotes, poems and so on, replacing one (or more) words with 'turnip'.

I'll start.

One of my favourite movies is Gone with the Turnip. :D

A hard turnip is good to find.

You're stealing my vegetables!!

May I remind of the warning on my book?

This book contains a jaded hero, sarcasm, violence, and magic spells involving aggressive turnips.

I even have a pub called the Elephant and Turnip. *sulks*

You know where this all came from, Idiots? A few days back aadams73 claimed not to be human and I said, "Yes, she's a cyborg. Half man, half turnip."

Who knew we'd end up here?!

Last night I watched Pride and Turnip and We Own the Turnip.

06-23-2009, 02:11 AM
I watched O Turnip, Where Art Thou? last night.

06-23-2009, 02:11 AM
I rather enjoyed Ilfayne's Turnip.

I'm currently reading Turnips Die Young by our own Aston West.

I just finished listening to the audio version of The Voyage of the Dawn Turnip, and I'm delighted to know it will be a movie sometime soon.

I haven't watched Prince Turnip yet, but I'm hoping to see it tonight with the Cajun.

Either that or watch The Count of Monte Turnip.

I'm about to read Pride and Turnips! I want to read before I watch it. And I'd also like to see a good version of Anne of Green Turnips sometime as I've read through two of the books, and have a couple more on my shelves to read through.

And I've just gotten Turnip Eight, I needed a Ranger fix and I'm way behind.

06-23-2009, 02:20 AM
I'm fond of Catch-22 Turnips.

Prince Turnip is good. I read it and I recommend it highly.

The only version of Anne of Green Turnips is one that has three movies in the series.

Some favorite books are the Turnips of the City series by Armistead Mauturnip: Turnips of the City, More Turnips of the City, Further Turnips of the City, Turnipcakes, Significant Turnips, Sure of Turnips, and Turnip Tolliver Lives!. Favorite movies include The Rocky Horror Turnip Show and TV shows are That Turnip! and TurnipBusters. Song currently playing on the iPod is Turnip of Strength by Mission UK.

06-24-2009, 12:49 AM
There are many good turnip songs. My personal favorite is that old Pete Seeger classic, Turnip! Turnip! Turnip!. If my memory serves me correctly, the first couple of verses went something like:

To everything (turnip, turnip, turnip)
There is a season (turnip, turnip, turnip)
And a turnip for every purpose, under heaven

A turnip to be born, a turnip to die
A turnip to plant, a turnip to reap
A turnip to kill, a turnip to heal
A turnip to laugh, a turnip to weep etc. etc.

06-24-2009, 11:06 AM
I'm going to add to some spice to my turnips by adding "In bed" to my entries:

I love my Turnip Spaniel...in bed.

Turnips is as turnips does...in bed.

My kingdom for a turnip...in bed.

How much is that turnip in the window...in bed?

Did you turnip anything...in bed?

06-24-2009, 12:54 PM
My favorite books include Turnipship Down, The Last Turnips, and the Day of the Turnips. Similarly, Night of the Living Turnips is quite a good unturnip movie.
