I've never been a big carrot eater. I know, I know -- I should eat them more. They are a great source of beta carotene, yadda yadda yadda.
Anyway, I'm not crazy about carrots.
And for this reason, I've always been amused at the so-called "carrot-and-stick" approach to diplomacy, which assumes you can lure someone to your side with carrots.
