In a paper published in the journal Science, biologists wrote that the tendrils of cucumbers have the ability to entwine and attach themselves to the branches of trees, to “jump” towards warm spots by “springing” special fibres in their cells, flexing their antennae into a spiral to “dry out”, subsequently leading to the compression of these cells.

Cukes rule! 140 million Russkies CAN’T be wrong! The cuke… the King of Vegetables… just as Kielbasa is the King of Meats. Hey, even the Polacks, Hunkies, and Krauts agree with us. Ukes for cukes! How’s that for a slogan?

Let’s SMILE at the GOODNESS of the world…
