Thus, illegal vegetables would suddenly become irresistible to many, probably in inverse proportion to their current consumption.

       Nice idea, but reverse psychology has been around for donkey's years. It's not new.   

       Also, this wouldn't work on children. I've tried it.

       This is just a ploy to make your oniony self irrestible, isn't it? Fair enough.
