non-vegetarian vegetable

The local Indian store has a modest section offering vegetables each labelled in English with often liberal spelling. Redish was just something to warm you up and prepare you for Bison Bites aka Snack Gaur. Rest assured, O shocked vegetarians. This was not the bison served up to complement a sip of cold carbonated cola; this was just a typo too much for trichosanthes cucumerina, also known as your friendly neighbourhood snake gourd. You may now breathe again.
