This cracked me up.
A WOMAN travelling in business class from Sydney to Brisbane on a Qantas flight last Friday was greeted with an amusing sight when her meal arrived … she drank in the sight of six charming looking dumplings, accompanied by a side of something charred and limp and decidedly phallic.
“I asked the server what it was … and he told me that it was a root vegetable,” she explained.
“I asked him to pass me my phone so I could take a photo … I never take photos of food but this was too funny to pass up.
“He blushed and was very apologetic, I don’t think he had ever seen anything quite like it … the lady next to me was cracking up.”
The woman left the blackened rod untouched, but ate the dumplings and declared they were “delicious”.
When she posted the image on her Facebook page it was greeted with more than 50 comments and 100 likes.
Some of the more entertaining comments on her Facebook post included:
- “A root vegetable is one way to describe it … I think you inadvertently just joined the mile-high club.”
- “Is that food, or in-flight entertainment?”
- “Did you ask for a stiff drink to accompany it?”
- “This is a hotbed of innuendo.”
- “From a food stylist’s perspective, this will give you nightmares for years to come.”
- “Definitely a root vegetable they couldn’t serve on Virgin.”

Australians are good at taking the p**s out of mistakes like that . . . it’s one of their more endearing features.
