Oh good, you got peer review, and better than my half baked thought.
Blemished bananas?
Data squash?
Pre-cooked data?

You captured Muller totally. Good work.

How about arctic-chokes?

October 23, 2011 12:18 pm

Artic-chokes, love it. That is worth adding in 😉

I am glad you did not go over-the-top with any illusions to enviro watermelons (green outside and red inside).
What wonderful restraint you have.

Hard green shell – mushy green flesh – great big nut in the middle

Green on the outside, Red on the inside….. 😉

Hey, there is no such thing as Urban Heat.. Muller says so. !! Must be correct.
At least, if there is, it doesn’t affect thermometers.

I also thought that the golden rule of science is if you know that you have bad data, you don’t massage it, you don’t dice it, you don’t sweeten it – you throw it out.
But of course, this is climate science.

son of mulder,
Man, you are killing me with chuckles.

Fabulous. Can you get Anthony in there complaining he’s been sold a lemon?

Ah – I can see Richard Muller is not a real climate scientist greengrocer – he’s spelt the plurals correctly. (That’s not a dig at climate scientists – it is a running joke in the UK that greengrocers sell – apple’s, banana’s and potatoe’s)

Hand-picked cherries, pre-ethanol corn, capped-CO2-sicum (aussie version of bell peppers). 😉

Wendy, genius. And other additions, all just lovely thank you!

John, I assure you that green watermelons are not “illusions”. You probably meant allusions.

October 23, 2011 4:10 pm

Ya gotta be sure the veggies are staying cool. So maybe a little tree-mometer poking out of the corner of the veggie cart.

What about straw-berries?

“Fruits out of season”: the reeducation of the Great Capitalist Masses may have suffered some setbacks, but at least the Fruits of the Earth have been brought forward by the principles of ComradeT. D. Lysenko. If this continues, the workers’ paradise, sorry, the Green Garden of Eden will be populated solely by lettuceheads…

October 23, 2011 4:42 pm

Heh, I would have though Muller and team would have been on sale at the Vegetable counter themselves after those 4 pieces of work!!

Intellectual pea-soupers require:
One dense fog of methodology
Some Berkeley Out-of-dates
and few Has-beans
Bungling Every Statistical Task (BEST)

Follow the dancing ball. … we have no banana today…
Oh, wait, they do have bananas… amazing!

While checking for hilarious new fruit/veggie suggestions from fellow WUWT pun-dits (thanks, guysI) I looked at the cartoon again and found my favorite little worm at lower left. Thanks, Josh.
