>Vegology or What Your Favorite Vegetable Says About You
>Who says there's no such thing as vegetarian humor? I run a small,
>successful business based on that very principle. My company, Wearable
>Vegetables, produces and sells T-shirts, aprons, boxers and sweatshirts
>emblazoned with veggie plays on words like "Silence of the Yams",
>"Shiitake Happen" and, most recently, the "Soypranos". I don't remember
>when or how it happened, but after selling thousands of these shirts, I
>developed the ability to predict people's traits based on their favorite
>veggie or to guess their favorite vegetable based on their prominent
>traits. I wove all this information into a theory I call "vegology."
>Test this theory: Think of your favorite vegetable (or top three), and
>see if the shoe fits.
>Asparagus: Your serious exterior belies your fun inner child. You love
>to travel and are well read but often come away from experiences with
>very different impressions than your friends do. Compatible with
>spinaches and broccolis. Avoid carrots and green beans.
>Broccoli: Cautious by nature, you seek status, power and financial gain.
>You should be encouraged to take time off from work and enjoy yourself.
>You are always well groomed, if a bit on the conservative side.
>Compatible with tomatoes and corns. Avoid eggplants and garlics.
>Carrot: Because you prefer to work independently, you can appear aloof
>to others. You make good parents, showing great interest in your
>children's activities. You are detail-oriented yet lead a simple life.
>Compatible with squashes and green beans. Avoid garlics and spinaches.
>Chile pepper: Charming and endlessly social, you have an intuitive
>understanding of human nature; at times you can be childlike and even a
>bit gullible. No matter what you undertake, you give it your best shot.
>Compatible with garlics and tomatoes. Avoid carrots and broccolis.
>Corn: You're not afraid of hard work and rarely complain, though you can
>be a bit of a martyr. Loyal and devoted with strong ethics, you go
>beyond the call of duty for friends and your job. Compatible with
>broccolis and tomatoes. Avoid mushrooms and garlics.
>Cucumber: You feel the need to stay busy and productive. You are often
>the most responsible person in your social circle. When it comes to
>family, you are loyal (sometimes to a fault) and dedicated to rituals.
>Compatible with chiles and tomatoes. Avoid carrots and green beans.
>Eggplant: You mix well in a variety of social situations. While you find
>it easy to give, receiving is more challenging. You have a great wit and
>are a nonconformist. You're able to motivate others with your
>straightforwardness. Compatible with garlics and spinaches. Avoid
>cucumbers and green beans.
>Garlic: You are powerful and controlling, with boundless energy. You
>succeed at whatever you choose to do and are the life of the party. Many
>of you still have some childhood issues to overcome. Compatible with
>eggplants and tomatoes. Avoid broccolis and carrots.
>Green bean: Whether parent, teacher or friend, you do it all with class,
>though your empathic nature sometimes causes you to conform to others'
>style. You are spiritual, spontaneous and generous to a fault.
>Compatible with broccolis and tomatoes. Avoid garlics and chiles.
>Mushroom: Intellectual yet moody, you live a life full of
>contradictions. Beneath your brooding surface lies a heart filled with
>humor and compassion. You're not as confident as you appear and often
>mistrust others. Compatible with potatoes and corns. Avoid tomatoes and
>Potato: Dependable and forthright, with you, what you see is what you
>get. Steady and relaxed, you enjoy sports and working out. Despite your
>many talents, you are humble in every way. Compatible with corns and
>broccolis. Avoid carrots and squashes.
>Spinach: You've always marched to your own drummer. And while you like
>others to think you're a carefree nonconformist, deep down, you are
>basically a conservative soul with goals and pursuits that tie you down.
>Compatible with garlics and asparaguses. Avoid carrots and broccolis.
>Squash: You are the luckiest of all the vegetables. Travel always
>stimulates your creative side, keeping your mind in the dream zone. You
>are the kindest of all, but your strength runs deep. Compatible with
>potatoes and green beans. Avoid carrots and broccolis.
>Tomato: You embody a certain innocence and freeness. You are emotional
>yet firm in your convictions and extremely loyal. As social as you seem,
>there is a side of you that deflects the spotlight. Compatible with
>broccolis and garlics. Avoid mushrooms and spinaches.
>Gay Sperling is the president and founder of Wearable Vegetables.
