Oedipus the Vegetable

Sophocles wrote the play Oedipus the King in the 5th century BC. This is the Ancient Greek tragedy about the king who was fated to kill his father and marry his mother, and ended up doing just that because of the very actions taken by his parents to avoid that fate. This story was made into a not-completely-faithful video acted out by vegetables, which is below for those interested.
