He speaks through cucumbers, too...

I’m pretty sure that VeggieTales is the most brilliant thing…ever. Seriously. It was a very significant part of my childhood, and songs like, “The Song of the Cebu” and “His Cheeseburger” continue to be part of my daily (or at least weekly) life. Really, I can recite almost every VeggieTales song circa 1999 and earlier (my mom eventually stopped buying every single one that came out, so sadly, I fell a little behind in my relationship with Bob, Larry, and friends). In fact, this evening, my friend Chad and I had this great little singalong to “I Can Be Your Friend” and “The New & Improved Bunny Song.” It was pretty awesome. Also, I still think God speaks to me through those vegetables (especially Junior Asparagus). No, reallyHe does! But then, God tends to get my attention in funny little ways (oftentimes via the shuffle feature on my mp3 player…), and that totally includes animated vegetables in a kid’s show. It’s so fitting for me, and hey, it works. I guess whatever it takes to get the message across, right?


  1. lol a lot of bible stories I remember only because of veggie tales....I love it!!

  2. I want you to know that I listened to "Dance of the Cucumber" multiple times while in Argentina. (As if I didn't know every single word already.) I really think that song inspired my lifelong pursuit of the Spanish language.
