Oh, Lady Gaga. You continually challenge us in interesting and unexpected ways. The latest provocation from the inimitable pop icon? A question, unclear whether idle or urgent, sent out on Twitter on Sunday evening, at 5:17 p.m., to her more than 80 million followers: "can u eat too much chinese broccoli"

No question mark? No matter. The responses — along with 16.2K Retweets and 145.8K Likes rolled in regardless.

There were yeses. There were nos, nopes and nevers. And there was a considerable amount of concern about potential digestive effects from going ham on the cruciferous veggie.

"Chinese broccoli is the best," one fan of both Gaga and Gai Lan agreed.

"too much is never enough," wrote another.

There were those who just seemed happy to consider the matter.

"this is the twitter interaction I didn't know I needed," one upbeat commenter declared.

Oh, and also? There were lots of requests for new music from Lady Gaga’s always hungry Little Monsters.

"Wanna know what’s better than broccoli? music," opined one.

That may or may not be true. But does Gaga’s Zen koan-like tweet have anyone else hoping to see her don a Chinese-veggie version of her VMA meat dress of yore on the red carpet one day soon? Finger’s crossed she’ll accessorize with a broccolini purse, because if that doesn’t sound like an "It" bag in the making, we don’t know what does.
