It appears that cucumber farmers are equivalent to pornographers in some religious circles. We previously saw how a grocer in Iraq was killed for putting fruits and vegetable together that might be sexually suggestive. Now, an Islamic cleric in Europe has issued his own warning to Muslim women not to get close to cucumbers, bananas or other sexually suggestive fruit.
The published warning from the Islamic site el-Senousa includes instructions for men to cut up cucumbers and bananas before women can come into contact with them to protect them from temptation and immorality. Perhaps stores should store the fruits and vegetables in brown paper bags behind the counter with the Penthouse and Hustler copies.
Carrots and zucchini also were added to the list of demonic fruits and vegetables.
It appears that it is the Atkins diet or damnation.
