what is kiwi ?

It’s Rod again. Rod is a smart guy, but he has got this irregular ‘blurness’ syndrome that would sometimes hit him all of a sudden. I’m fortunate enough to have encountered it once… But last Friday, I can be considered ‘too lucky’ to have encountered it again.

My colleagues and I were discussing about fruits at that time, about my instinctive disfavor of melons and anything that resembled its texture – mushy and seedy like that (except tomatoes). That was when someone brought up the name – Kiwi fruit. (If you don’t know what’s a Kiwi fruit, go find yourself a toilet bowl, put your head into it, and flush).

Well, it was all healthy Kiwi discussion when suddenly, Rod came up with a question that pretty much stunned everyone

Rod : “Just curious, is Kiwi grown from some kind of plant or tree?”

There was a moment of silence there. Then I answered him,

Me : “Nooooo duuuuuude. Kiwi is actually a kind of dog’s scrotum. They’re harvested from the animal’s crotch and people just eat it as a fruit. Did you notice its hairy skin and all that? That’s dog hair…”

Rod : [blushes]

Me : “It’s a FRUIT, man. Where the fuck else do you think it could have grown from??”

Rod had certainly added something valuable into his cache of general knowledge that day.

    *giggle* Yes, yes! Green signifies bountiful! The black seeds nourishes your own seeds.

    Rod does have a valid question there

    plant
    tree

    For example, water melons are fruits from a plant, not tree.

    Perhaps his question was misunderstood.

    primroses – green signifies fertility i guess…

    jand – i translated it from hokkien. He quoted “chang” – which means, some plants. But “chang” in hokkien includes trees, but “plant” in English does not. Hence, I substituted it as “plant or tree”. Blame it on my poor command of English.

    fish fish – yeah, but when you speak it in some dialect, you would just call it ‘kiwi’.
