It’s not normal that Europeans go looking for serious debate and see MEP’s cucumber

From our bent bananas to nutritious and safe Spanish cucumbers we love our fruit and vegetables here in the Brussels bubble. So much so it seems that our elected representatives are intent on waving them at us in the European Parliament, as Francisco Sosa Wagner MEP (non-aligned, Spain) showed yesterday. Well, it makes for a good photo doesn’t it.

But what’s the best thing to be waved in a debate in the European Parliament? Here’s some of the other things we remember being brandished by our elected representatives over the years:

  • A bunch of carrots
  • A tin of tomato puree
  • Scoobie strings
  • Safety helmets
  • A pornographic magazine
  • A box of pizza
  • A birthday cake

It’s not quite a top ten list as yet. Perhaps you have favorites to add?
