Two men are walking down the street . . .

Two men are walking down the street. 
It's market day. 
They are dressed in business suits.  They've bought something to eat from one of the vendors. They snapped it in half so each of them got a piece. They are sharing it as they walk along. 
What are they eating?

I'll give you a hint.  It's a fruit or vegetable.

Give up?

It's a cucumber!  
I don't know anyone who loves cucumbers enough to eat one for a snack.  But then Turks typically eat cucumbers, tomatoes, yogurt, cheese and olives at most meals ... including breakfast.


  1. I'd eat a cucumber for a snack......

    1. I stand corrected! But if the choice was one of those warm sesame bread things they sell at the market or a cucumber ...
