You probably noticed a growing trend on facebook where quite a few people would post this as their status: "I know nobody will see my status but sometimes I like to dig a hole in my backyard, stand in the hole, and pretend I’m a carrot." Sometimes they put variations of other vegetables instead of a carrot. Some facebook groups and people get so sick of such trashing of everyone's newsfeed that they demand that others stop posting this. We did some research and see that this meme is actually quite old and dates back to 2007, but is gaining momentum on facebook only now. Apparently it turned into some kind of facebook game where everyone who responds to this status should receive a PM from a poster. Some people say it's about breast cancer awareness, but we hardly see the connection here. Can anyone shed some light on what this game is about?
Photoshop anyone in a hole in his backyard pretending to be a carrot.
Photoshop this image of carrot tops (click to download) any way you wish. Some examples are: dressing up these carrot tops, merging them with other vegetables and fruits, making the carrot tops perform other stunts, using this carrot tops image in advertisements, movies, paintings, etc. These are just some ideas.

Shocking news this Friday. Thousands of people from an online group are on a mission to create the global shortage of carrots by massively buying all carrot supplies in one day - May 15 2008. The group has 60,000 members and is growing every day. All the members pledge to swarm local supermarkets and buy out their supply of carrots. The group is doing this to increase the world awareness of carrots as a source of valuable nutrients and vitamins.
You are on a mission to save carrots by photoshopping them any way you like. Some examples are - show what life would be like if carrots ruled the world, demonstrate the alternative uses of carrots or use carrots in place of other objects, merge carrots with other vegetables or fruits, put carrots in famous paintings and movies, etc.
