A Meat and a Vegetable in Vegas

I was recently walking down the Las Vegas strip with my mom when I saw a bright sign advertising Meat Loaf’s Planet Hollywood performances.

“Meat Loaf,” I said, reading out loud.

“Why would anyone want to see him?” mom asked.

“He’s pretty good,” I said, surprised at her disregard for a rock’n’roll icon.

After a brief pause, she realized her mistake.

“I meant Carrot Top,” she said, without missing a beat.

Leave it to mom to mistake a rock idol for a root vegetable.
