Wow, sorry to hear about your first world problems, guys. I guess this broccoli thing is more important than cops “fondue-dishing” peaceful protestors at the Bruges Trilateral Commission summit, huh? Oh, let me guess… you were too busy watching The 700 Club to notice.
Also, my broccoli treehouse is steampunk.
Get off my broccoli, man.
Heh, you said his name is “Brock.”
I always imagined tiny wookies living in my broccoli.
/no, they’re not ewoks
I broccolike it!
So many stories about the wrongness of the world, then this. This is a wonderful thing. It makes me smile. If I was smaller I would live in it (and I could probably pass for a wookie ;-).
Anybody else notice how much the broccoli looks like a brain from the side, looking to the viewer’s right? The would-be cerebellum is just a little posterior though.
Tiny tree house in broccoli? Awesome. Tiny toy food? Ridiculous and immature!
The best part is that it’s Brock’s broccoli treehouse.
I am sitting in an outside cafe on the island of Naxos, Greece. And yet, I am compelled to not only read BB but to comment, “What, no jokes about the dude’s name being Brock?”. There seriously needs to be a bbA, boingboing Anonymous.
You’re on Naxos? Are you drinking Kitron?
Genius, a house you can eat.
And sticks to pick the broccoli out of your teeth after, too!
Dude is consistently clever. Great followthrough, as always.
Tee-hee – that would be a cubby, not a treehouse! 8^)
George H.W. Bush not allowed.
Ha! I did something similar in high school- mine was a tire swing instead of a tree house.
Hey we’re probably distant cousins, can I crash at your “Broccoli Tree House” tonight?
inb4 “That seems like an impractical thing to live in because I am a very smart engineer who posts on Boing Boing.”
What is this? A treehouse for ants? How can we be expected to teach children to learn how to play… if they can’t even fit inside the treehouse?
Derek, this is just a small…
I don’t wanna hear your excuses! The treehouse has to be at least… three times bigger than this!
Broccoli shall remember this injustice.
Cauliflower reply Broccoli, least no chop up, boil living, then dying Cauliflower sibling eaten.
Hope you live long wilting shriveling life.
Hope not vegetable torture porn, may you eaten anyway after picture?
That seems like an impractical thing to live in because I am a very smart engineer who posts on Boing Boing.
(Wait. Am I late?)
Wise words from the departing:
Eat your greens, especially broccoli.
And always say “thank you,”
Especially for broccoli.
Yeah but with that flat roof the rain is going to leak in.
(Just pretending to be a very smart engineer who posts on Boing Boing). :)
Oh… and I the first to notice that the name of the guy who made this is BROCK?
Please post this to Cute Overload.
I loved this and showed the picture excitedly, without preamble, to my girlfriend.
She’s used to me showing her amazing things from Boingboing, and she blurted out “No, oh my god, they made giant broccoli!”
Giant broccoli. Want. Will grow nicely next to my giant rhubarb. Then I can pretend to be tiny.
I wonder how much gram flour you would need to turn that treehouse-tree into pakora.
