•Junior Editor Quit en- ARTICHOKES STRAMGE. WORp-A,R-nCHOKE! NOT AT ALL- \ IT'S BECAUSE J OF THE ^L ART </ ELEMENT J // NAH- »T' 3ECAUSE THEY Cf-fOKE YOU THEfA-THEY'RE gQTH "CHOKIKk3" QUESTION: How did artichokes get that queer name? ANSWER: Artichokes are not native to America. This tasty vegetable comes from countries around the Mediterranean Sea. The Italians call it articiocco; to the Spaniards, it is alcachofa and to the Arabians alkharshuf. Don't these names all have a similar sound? Of course, they are not easy words for an English-speaking person to pronounce and remember. But that's just the point. In many cases, the English names for things have come from taking a difficult foreign word and making a more English-sounding word out of it. We are not positive about this, but we think it likely that artichoke was derived in this way from the difficult to pronounce foreign words for this vegetable. But perhaps Joe, who was simply joking in our picture, has something to his side of the story after all. At the tip of each edible leaf-like part of the artichoke is a little spine — in some cases these look like thorns. Inside the vegetable (arrow in picture), there is a prickly layer which must be removed before one can enjoy the creamy delicious heart. One could easily choke on an artichoke if you tried to eat the wrong part. (Lorraine de Santis of Little Ferry, N. J., wins a prize for this question.
