Good name for a rock band: Exploding Cabbage

A man slaves over his cabbage, nursing it along, until it is six feet wide and weighs 100 pounds. He expects records to be set at the state fair weigh-in and is, um, salivating over the $2,000 prize.

Then, boom, all his dreams go up in cole slaw.

Scott Robb still is growing giant cabbages, but none of them have reached the size of the one that exploded three years ago. Robb speculates that the Big One blew up because it was growing too fast. Anyone who has eaten too much cabbage knows how that feels.

Extra points: This all happened in Alaska.
