Mickey Mouse-inspired cucumbers are a new menu feature at The Garden Grill Restaurant at Epcot Center. The cucumbers are grown hydroponically in greenhouses behind the restaurant. When each cucumber is three inches long, a Mickey mold is attached to the vine and the cucumber grows into it. They take about seven to 10 days to mature, in a natural process which yield about three or four per day.

Do you think it`s wrong to modify food in a non-genetic way, like these `Mickey Mouse` cucumbers?

whenever people start messin with my food, it makes me wonder what else has been done to it
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/4/04 - 7:27:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
they wouldnt do if it wasnt safe.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/4/04 - 7:31:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
Now that's just weird.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/4/04 - 7:35:23 PM EST (GMT-5)

Is it just me, or does those look disturbingly like uteruses?
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/4/04 - 8:47:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
No I think it's cool!!!
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/4/04 - 8:51:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
Wrong??? In what way??? So people play with food, big deal....
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/4/04 - 11:19:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
How could there be anything "wrong" with it--you're just changing the shape with a mold for it to grow in, that doesn't alter anything about the food except the shape. We trim hdges into shapes we like (whether elaborate scultures or just well-manicured squares), bonsai tree growing is a famous Asian discipline that involves moding the shape of a growing plant, people do things all the time with the way trees grow around things, people trane rose and other types of vines to grow in certain ways and in certain shapes...there's nothing "wrong" with that sort of thing at all.

Abd please ignore my typoes in the above post...it's late, my eyes hurt, and I'm hungy (maybe I'll eat some Mickey Mouse cucumbers )
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/11/04 - 2:22:09 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't see anything wrong with it at all.
18 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 1/27/04 - 1:43:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's wrong in the sense of "Mickey Mouse cucumbers?!?! DIE!"
18 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 1/27/04 - 6:42:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
Why would it be wrong? People have been modifying food in ways like this for centuries..
18 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 1/27/04 - 6:44:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
I guess we shouldn't cook it either then.
18 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 2/5/04 - 2:02:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, they're pretty cool unless there's unsafe chemicals involved.
18 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 2/5/04 - 2:17:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think its 'wrong'

"they wouldn't do it if it wasn't safe" - Zombie ^^^

um... I don't think that's the healthiest set of logic you got going on there....

18 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 2/18/04 - 9:35:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my...(x infinity)
this is super creepage
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Friday 2/27/04 - 9:29:56 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'd rather they did it that way then messed about with the things genes.
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Friday 2/27/04 - 9:31:21 AM EST (GMT-5)
Disney's gotta put their greedy hand in everything, don't they!

I wouldn't eat it.

18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Friday 2/27/04 - 9:33:22 AM EST (GMT-5)
I want them to genetically alter a ham so ever time I cut a huge chunk off then a new piece grows back in it's place....ahhhh heaven
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 3/15/04 - 3:38:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
The Mickey Mouse part is definitely wrong. Something sinister going on there. In general, though, it doesn't bother me.
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 3/15/04 - 3:40:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
Aw, those are too cute! But it's done by Disney, so they probably are evil in some way.

18 yrs ago - Tuesday 5/11/04 - 5:31:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nah, they're cool, and i wouldn't say modified so much as trained.
18 yrs ago - Tuesday 5/11/04 - 5:36:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
They should scream in that annoyingly squeeky Mickey Mouse voice when you bite them.
18 yrs ago - Tuesday 5/11/04 - 5:36:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
Mickey Mouse veggies might get some kids to eat them. Probably the only thing wrong is how much more they're able to charge for that salad.
