You are what you eat. This idiom has always seemed darkly cannibalistic. What broccoli eats other broccoli? Gnarly twisted loony broccoli, that's who. And that's the most metal thing we've ever heard. Children, by definition, are idiots. One of the reasons you were told scare-tactic myths as a child is because you believed them to be law. Cross your eyes and they'll get stuck like that. If you keep playing with it, it's going to fall off. If you keep trying to eat the cardboard cereal box, you'll sprout goat horns. As adults, we're still idiots, but it's great because we get to consciously choose which hyperboles we trust. You are what you eat is still a crowd favorite, possibly because of it's wonky undertones. Rise of the cuckoo carrots? The crackpot cucumbers? Bonker beets? Sign us up for that wild ride anyday.
