The Vienna Vegetable Orchestra. Really.

We are big on telling TreeHuggers to eat their vegetables and do tell our children not play with their food, but for almost ten years the Vienna Vegetable Orchestra has been manufacturing musical instruments out of vegetables. "Using carrot flutes, pumpkin basses, leek violins, leek-zucchini-vibrators, cucumberophones and celery bongos, the orchestra creates its own extraordinary and vegetabile sound universe. The ensemble overcomes preserved and marinated sound conceptions or tirelessly re-stewed listening habits, putting its focus on expanding the variety of vegetable instruments, developing novel musical ideas and exploring fresh vegetable sound gardens." The video sounds great. ::Vienna Vegetable Orchestra via ::Splurch
