“Cauliflower is just scared broccoli”

"Did you know that cauliflower is just scared broccoli” is a joke line of comedian Harland Williams. The line has been cited in print since at least 2009.

Broccoli is green, but “scared broccoli” (cauliflower) is white.

. I dislike broccoli intensely so let’s just get that out of the way. Anyway it looks a great deal like cauliflower so do you think it is envious of cauliflower? Wait for it. It is like a joke grenade. Or perhaps cauliflower is just scared broccoli? Something to think about.
