Friday Funny! ;-) Sprouting carrot sparkles like gold

She had designed the ring herself – a white-gold band set with seven small diamonds – but it went missing back in 1995. She took the ring off to do some Christmas baking with her daughters, but it disappeared from where it had been left and hadn’t been seen since.

Mrs Paahlsson and her family live on a farm near Mora in central Sweden. The family searched everywhere and years later even took up tiling on the floor during renovations, in the hope of finding the ring.

No such luck!

But 16 years later Mrs Paahlsson was pulling up carrots in her garden when she noticed one with the gold band fastened tightly around it. “The carrot was sprouting in the middle of the ring. It is quite incredible,” her husband Ola told the local newspaper.

The couple believes the ring fell into a sink back in 1995 and was lost in vegetable peelings that were either turned into compost or fed to their sheep.

Sort of gives new meaning to the phrase “14 carat gold!”

  1. The final quote is a real groaner. Otherwise a great story.

  2. why…..

    If you are looking for something.. you will never find it.
    If you stop looking for it… you will find it, plus carrots

    for one moment, I though the couple would find a cat or a dog…. lol

    Its good to laugh.

    A cheerful heart is good medicine, – No heart disease
    but a crushed spirit dries up the bones – arthritis or bone issues….
    – Proverbs 17:22

    grace and peace …
