Zucchini and Rhubarb, featuring Ian Conn and Ricky Linn, is a sketch in which two people who have set up milk shake stands argue over who has the right to keep their stand on that particlar street.
Description: "One guy is selling zucchini milkshakes on one side of the street and another guy is selling rhubarb milkshakes on the other side of the street. It writes itself!"

The scene opens with a solitary figure standing next to a table on a road. The camera soon shows a close-up of the table, displaying a sign declaring that he sold zucchini milkshakes in unprofessional handwriting for 25 cents a shake. Shortly after, another person walks over on the other side of the street, setting up his own stand. The stand consisted of cardboard and a jug filled, presumably with rhubarb milkshakes, for that is what he sold- but for 24 cents a shake, contesting Zucchini Milkshake's price of 25 cents.
The two venders soon strike up a conversation, with an accusation directed against the newcomer: that he had not been there first. Both wish for the other to leave so that their seperate businesses may prosper from the other's absence. As the argument gets more and more intense, someone happens to walk down the street. Rhubarb Milkshake Man calls him down, asking him which was better: zucchini, or rhubarb milkshakes. During this exchange, the anger that the two milshake venders have for each other increases. After an expectant silence, the stranger laughs nervously, shrugging off this event, and makes a run for it, leaving both venders shouting at him to come back.
Their argument resumes, but the Rhubarb Milkshake Man's anger had increased to a great level. He said the following now famous lines, "You suck! I hate you! You were adopted! And nobody. Likes. Your. Milkshakes!"
With this insult delivered, they both pulled out firearms from their stands, yelling at each other. The incessant screaming continued, right up until both guns went off at each others faces, presumably killing one another.
