Twitter lost its mind over a vegetable this week.

I wish I was exaggerating, but I’m not. A woman received a zucchini at work from her boss, who placed it on the table with a sly, knowing wink. And the internet’s collective response was screaming bloody murder and calling for a lawsuit against the boss. Because a zucchini is like a green eggplant and an eggplant is the emoji symbol for penis.

Talk about stretching.

The tweet went viral, with over 2K retweets and nearly 7K likes.

People were horrified when they found out.

And that she should go to Human Resources and sue.

After all, workplace harassment is no small matter.


It’s unprofessional and unacceptable.

Except the story isn’t all as it seems. Turns out, the boss is a gardener who was sharing the crops.

Beat the zucchini with an eggplant.

It’s just a vegetable, after all!

Someone even gave her advice how to cook it.

Everyone’s calling harassment and here she is just trying to eat.

The confusion was hilarious.


Context matters, of course, and Zoe knew that her boss was kidding.

She’s even kind of wishing that the initial assumption was true.

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? It’s harassment! Actually, it’s just a zucchini.

Almost everyone was convinced she was going to cash out a big settlement.

This entire roller coaster actually ends with an awareness meeting.
