Proposal: In -joke for Australians

Top Banana threatens a VETO; the deferential votes are just enough to fail the proposal at time out (5-5).

If the Rule “The Market” does not exist, this Proposal does nothing.

Add a sub-rule titled “The Weather” to “Farmer Brown” with the text

If no Vegetable has done so within the previous 24 hours, any vegetable may make a comment in the GNDT of “Weather DICEX VEGGIE”, where X is the number of vegetables in the GNDT. Once this has been done, the Nth vegetable in the GNDT is affected by weather conditions, where N is the result of DICEX. The effect on the vegetable depends on the result of the VEGGIE check.
*If the result is Potato, rain washes soil rich in nutrients into the vegetable patch. The chosen vegetable’s healthfulness is increased by one
*If the result is Pumpkin, sunny weather allows the vegetable to photosynthesise more sugars and become sweeter. The vegetable’s Tastiness is increased by one.
*If the result is Triffid, cosmic rays cause the vegetable to mutate. The vegetable’s Exoticity is increased by one, and it’s Tastiness and it’s Healthfulness are halved.
*If the result is Carrot, most Australian farms growing that type of vegetable have been devastated by cyclones. The vegetable’s net worth is increased by two.

Because Carrots are the most similar to Bananas.

If I’m not particularily inclined toward this, can I veto it?

I mean, is it inethical to do so?

When is it unethical not to veto? ;P

Ah, I think I need to go learn to use better grammar.

Ha! And that sentence helps me none whatsoever.

Veto is not unethical, especially this early in the dynasty.
