SWIFT CURRENT, SK
Corny Wall, 21, of Swift Current consumed stick after stick of raw rhubarb this weekend all in an effort to win the heart of his crush Lina Kornelsen.
“Oba, if Lina doesn’t want to be with me after all this rhubarb consumption, I guess I’ll just have to settle for one of the Derksen sisters,” said Corny. “I mean, who wouldn’t want to be with a man who can handle his rhubarb?”
Lina watched with keen interest as Corny chomped down without even using sugar or anything.
“I have to admit, it’s pretty impressive,” said Lina. “I’ve always been told that rhubarb stamina like that is exactly what a Mennonite woman should look for in a man.”
Lina noted that Corny definitely showed promise as a potential husband and father of her children, but wasn’t entirely convinced, however.
“We’ll just wait and see how he handles a meal at Oma Derksen’s,” said Lina. “I’ve eliminated more potential suitors that way than any other method.”
Corny said he was more than happy to join Lina at Oma Derksen’s but said he wasn’t going to eat any plumi moos.
