Shrek: Ogres are like onions.

Donkey: They stink?

Shrek: Yes. No.

Donkey: Oh, they make you cry.

Shrek: No.

Donkey: Oh, you leave em out in the sun, they get all brown, start sproutin' little white hairs.

Shrek: NO. Layers. Onions have layers. Ogres have layers. Onions have layers. You get it? We both have layers. (sighs)

Donkey: Oh, you both have layers. Oh. You know, not everybody like onions.


  1. Une de mes scènes préférées ;)

  2. You know what else everybody likes?:))

  3. Nice photo and the onions look wonderful! I bet they taste much better than the ones we get in the UK ;o)

  4. Very nice close-up Jilly!
    3 euros a kilo, that's not cheap but the colours (and layers) are beautifully rendered.

    (I wonder what contrasts you've got coming up for us?)

  5. Oh, that's a clever conversation. I will have to rewatch Shrek...loved the film.

    And your photo is great! I have a photo I took in Seattle of peels, old vegetables, etc. that were left after a market closed...Reminds me of this!

  6. Haha. I expected chickens when I saw your title. This is a beautiful homage to onions (and to ogres).

  7. That's a nice piece from Shrek! Although I love onions! It's a part of our daily diet! Being vegetarians, we eat a vegetable with daal rice and chapatis accompanied by tomato, onion and cucumber salad!

  8. Maybe not everyone but I love onions of all shapes and sizes.

  9. Love this shot. I take many onions at the farmer's market every Sat. They have such "character"!

  10. Sometimes I marvel that man persevered with the onion. But well prepared it's good!

  11. great movie scene to go along with the picture

  12. Love the colors and organic feel of the photo.
