Sounds like something from Veggie Tales.

I have asparagus in my crisper. I bought it last week but forgot to use it and now it's bordering on the "is it still good?" edge. I'd have it tonight but we're going to the temple so it'll be fast food after unless Robert and ShaLiece can convince Dad to dine.
I planted some asparagus at our garden at the white house. It's survived 2 years but Dad keeps trying to weed it out. It takes 3 years for a harvestable stalk to grow. I'm hoping but not holding my breath.

It reminds me of Veggie Tales too, but the asparagus in Veggie Tales are named Junior and Alfred, I believe. I know many of the silly songs from Veggie Tales, as they've been favorite movies of our family for many years now. Some of my personal recommendations are "The Belly Button Song," "The Cheeseburger Song," "Barbara Manatee," and "The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything."

My shot in the dark for the real musical you are looking for though is Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.

I discovered last week that my almost 9-yr-old has not been eating any lunch at school. I don't blame him, because I don't think I could stand to eat much of what the school lunch offers either, but he doesn't eat sandwiches and many other lunchy-type things, so making home lunch for him would be difficult too. In an attempt to find something--anything--I could put in a brown paper sack for him though, I asked him to write down EVERYTHING healthy that he likes to eat. Wouldn't you know, if the fruits and vegetables category he wrote carrots, strawberries, and asparagus! Now how in the world do I prepare asparagus for a sack lunch?!

Looked this one up. Saw it in London in the company of yourself. Not one of my favorites. I have more comments when someone figures it out.

Veggie Tales indeed! We are MUCH more highbrow here than VEGGIE TALES!!!!

Mom-1 point for having asparagus in your freezer and your garden. 1 point for going with me (and paying for me) to see this musical. I agree--it's okay, but not one of my favorites.

Harmony-1 point for knowing the names of the asparagus in Veggie Tales. Another point for that awesomely funny story about your kid's lunch. I'll be watching for some kind of asparagus genius-ity to come from you in the future.

Still points on the table for the song and musical. I'll give you a hint--The name of the musical has four letters, and we have one in our home--black with green eyes. Full points still available for both.

Well the only thing in your house that has eyes and is black that I know of is your cat. Is this Cats?? Really??

I didn't know Eric was the name of a musical! ERIC is the name of the Utah HR department. I'm not quite sure how I fit into their department, I get my health insurance from PEHP, my retirement (which I get none)from URS and my online paystubs from USOE. When I contacted ERIC they don't have me in their system because I'm not an hourly or salaried employee and they can't give me a login name. But I keep getting info from them! asking why I haven't contacted them and what can they do to help!

I didn't know Eric was black??

Charlotte said...

Cats it is! 2 points to you Melissa!

One point for you mom for general silliness.

Charlotte said...

Also--for the record--Eric has grey eyes, not green eyes!
