Today on MSNBC David Shuster and Tamron Hall did a story on the "longest cucumber in the world," which was a bad idea right from the start.

The two had barely launched into the story when the giggles began, with Shuster at one point just giving up and burying his face in his hands. Take note Fox News—If you want to destroy MSNBC, and we know that you do, just plant a producer at the network and have him or her force the anchors to do stories regularly about oblong vegetables. The place will just come apart at the seams.
