So, Okay, I'll Explain It

   First,see the entry below to see what the joke was: Turnips really make a strw, but Parsnips stand alone

   You see, the flavor of turnips in a stew make it full and tasty. They add to the stew and make it better.  Parsnips, on the other hand, are strong and root-like. They only make the stew rangy and weed-like.  But boiled, buttered parsnips by themselves are deliciousThey stand alone.

Now, what is the message here? Is this a metaphor for life?  Of course it is  Some people when in a crowd dominate and ruin the conversation.  When some people are there,committees cannot function

   But if you have a converrsation with that person by himself, there is no crowd to impress, and he can be himself and he is delightful company.  He is the parsnip.  Alone he is fine, but in  a crowd (stew) he ruins the business at hand

  There.  NOW do you get it.
