Stuff about okra I've found here and there

These are a few okra things I found while surfing around. Follow the underlined links to visit the referenced site. If you find others or have a favorite okra joke or cartoon and want to see it here, send me the joke or the link via to okra-eaters at wackos dot org. If it's sufficiently 'wacky' and in poor taste, I'll include it and give you credit (if you really want to be credited with an okra joke).

Note: If you found your way here using a search engine and by seaching for"okra", you either farm it, eat it, have an obsession with slimy vegetables or likely have very little to do with your time. However, all is not lost! Click here or the 'little man running around the house' below to go to the WACKOS home page and enter the fascinating world of kite flying!

This entry from the Bubba archive says it all!
Dear Matt,

I can't stand the thought of stewed okra, either! As someone recently
said in reference to sugar in cornbread (hey, it's not Granny's, but it's not
horrible)--EEEWWWWW, GROSS!
However, I do believe I could live on iced tea and my Granny's fried
okra for the rest of my life. Admittedly, a diet of fried okra would ensure
that that life wouldn't be very long, but I'd die happy!
A friend recently introduced me to pickled okra, too. It's absolutely
delicious, if you can get past the faint prickly feel it has. Yummy!

"Dear KAPTAIN C: I'm new here. Tell me about Okracoke. Is it the best beach in the world?  NEWCOMER
DEAR COMER: "Okracoke?" It sounds like either the best beach or the worst soft drink idea."

"Dear KAPTAIN C: What's green and slimy and has its own talk show? STRAIGHT MAN
DEAR MAN: Okra Winfrey. Also Jerry Springer"

Okra     Dec 22 - Jan 20
Although you appear crude, you are actually very slick on the inside. Okras have tremendous influence.
An older Okra can look back over his life and see the seeds of his influence everywhere. Stay away from
Moon Pies
There's no connection to the pod except the name but these guys make some beautiful glass objects .... Okra Art Glass. Their web seems to have gone away, but if you search on "Okra Art Glass" you'll see some beautiful examples.

The following aren't particularly 'wacky', but they may be of interest to the true okra aficionado:
