Cabbages are the sworn enemies of the Discordians. Long ago, in the season of Chaos, the Apostle Hung Mung met a Cabbage passing along the road to Timbuktu. The Cabbage said some very rude things about Hung Mung's mother. Hung Mung became very angry at the Cabbage, and said some very rude things right back. From these humble beginnings was the eternal enmity between Discordians and Cabbages born. This is reflected in the POEE Baptismal Rite, in which it is said, "Are Ye Human, and Not a Cabbage Or Something?".
