Question Why are they called Brussels sprouts anyway?

I don't like the implications of having to capitalize part of the name of a vegetable

Do they call them that in Brussels too? Or are they just sprouts there?

Why doesn't the U.S. have a vegetable named after it? It hardly seems fair. When will America have her turn?

I don't think everyone everywhere calls them that. I think in the UK they're simply called "Sprouts"

it took a career in vegetarian restaurants in an English speaking tourists overrun European capital to know that sprouts weren't the same as Brussel sprouts

Did someone on this board once tell me they eat them with maple syrup? I'm still troubled by the thought

I think they're called Brussel Sprouts cause they're ridiculously tiny and not a real cabbage

what kind of country would let Germany keep their railroad and towns inside their own boarders (Vennbahn)? That's like an invitation to be invaded again!

At least it's not Luxembourg

There are two real countries in Europe. Germany and France. Everything else is just an autonomous zone waiting for the next war

I am claiming German citizenship from now on. I'm only here because Trump won't let me leave.
