The Magazine For Cucumber Lovers Everywhere
Volume 1 Number 1
Welcome To Cucumber Focus
You know that feeling you get when you're surfing the Web and you think, "If I don't read something about cucumbers soon, I'm gonna scream"? Well, FORGET IT, because with Cucumber Focus, you'll always have a pickle place of your own on the Internet.
Cucumbers On The Web
For this, our premiere issue, we offer you a sampling of the limited resources devoted to our favourite strangely sexual vegetable that are already out there on the Net:
- That document on why cucumbers are better than men is everywhere: try here,
here and here.
- This is more like it: Cucumber Information Services. Unfortunately, it turns out to be "the Leading Unix, Internet, Linux, C++, C Bookstore in the World". But they get points for trying.
- Here's a recipe for German Cucumber Salad from Veggies Unite. In fact, the search function shows 55 cucumber recipes at Veggies Unite - perhaps a save the cucumber campaign is in order.
- But fear not, here comes the hard-core cucumber: everything you ever wanted to know about the Armenian cucumber.
- Here's a site for Cucumber's Home Page, but not a green vegetable in sight.
- Watch out, cucumber lovers! The threat of the Banded Cucumber Beetle is ever near.
- Another recipe, this time for cucumber yoghurt sauce and fresh off a gopher server.
- What is The Purple Cucumber, I hear you cry? Cry away! It was some weird musical event in Belgium involving Frank Zappa.
- If that Armenian stuff wasn't enough for you, check out this contents page for a magazine with a truly great cucumber focus. To tempt you, it includes references to "Effects of ethylene on hermaphroditic cucumbers" and "A cucumber mutant with increased hypocotyl and internode length". Yeah!
We've Run Out Of Ideas
Well, it's no wonder that this magazine concept hasn't taken off. If there's something you'd like to see in Cucumber Focus, let us know and we'll send the men with the straitjackets round.
