When a stubborn carrot wouldn't budge,a young woman enlists help to pull it out.
Twenty-three year old Claire Thompson was extremely proud of her garden and all the different types of fruit and vegetables that grew in it.

One day,the young brunette was pick some fruit when she noticed a truly enormous carrot and said, "Oh my god,that's so big it could feed the entire neighbourhood," as she then grabbed onto It's shoot and pulled and pulled with all her strength but to her surprise,it just wouldn't come out of the ground.

Claire then spent the next five minutes pulling the carrot with all her strength but still it just refused to budge as she lost her grip and tumbled backwards onto the grass.

"Wow,that carrot really is being stubborn,Chloe,could you please come out here,I need your help," called the young woman to her wife.

The young blond laughed when she heard the situation and said, "I'll give you a hand," as she then grabbed onto Claire's waist,who pulled the carrot as the two tugged and heaved with all their strength but it just didn't work.

The couple's next door neighbour Sinead had been watching their struggle and said, "Here,I'll give you a hand," as she then grabbed onto Chloe's waist and the trio pulled and pulled but still the enormous carrot refused to budge a single inch.

Sinead then went and got her husband Howard while Claire called the two's close friend Charlotte,who arrived with her daughter Amy and joked, "This is just the enormous turnip story I read to her at bedtime."

Howard then grabbed onto his wife's waist while Charlotte pulled his belt and even Amy helped by pulling the hem of her mother's dress.

The six then pulled and pulled and pulled the enormous carrot with all their strength and although it did move slightly,it still remained stuck in the ground.

Just Claire and Chloe's dog Toby saw the situation and grabbed onto the hem of Sinead's skirt,who protested as it was just newly bought until Chloe said, "I'll replace it if rips,now stop complaining and pull."

The five adults,the young girl and the dog pulled,tugged and heaved with all their strength on the stubborn enormous carrot,which still wouldn't move as a bird noticed the epic tug of war and grabbed onto the hem of Amy's skirt and with a loud POP sound,the carrot finally came flying out of the ground at last.

Everyone then tumbled backwards into a heap on the grass as Toby and the bird looked on.

"Thank goodness for that,it's finally out," said Claire as she hugged and kissed her wife before hugging everyone else including Toby,who licked her face before thanking everyone including the bird for helping her.

She then made everyone some carrot soup and cake before joking, "I think I might grow turnips next week," as everyone began laughing.
