Why are they called Brussels sprouts anyway?
 
I don't like the implications of having to capitalize part of the name of a vegetable

Alice 02-24-2021 04:04 PM

Stupid tiny cabbages

Alice 02-24-2021 04:05 PM

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

Alice 02-24-2021 04:05 PM

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

This is part four of an ongoing series of threads inspired by edible plants

They are here!

MyOneAndOnly 02-24-2021 04:06 PM

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

Alice 02-24-2021 04:07 PM

Good. I'm sick of Belgium getting all the attention

smashingjj 02-24-2021 04:07 PM

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

Alice 02-24-2021 04:08 PM

I hear their beers aren't even as good as those of the Swiss

smashingjj 02-24-2021 04:08 PM

ik zou het niet pikken

Alice 02-24-2021 04:10 PM

I'd like to call them freedom sprouts from now on

Alice 02-24-2021 04:11 PM

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

Alice 02-24-2021 04:11 PM

Which reminds me, this is actually part five of an ongoing series of threads inspired by edible plants

Alice 02-24-2021 04:12 PM

SORRY

MyOneAndOnly 02-24-2021 04:15 PM

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

Alice 02-24-2021 04:15 PM

HEYOOOOOOOOOOO

Alice 02-24-2021 04:18 PM

Fucken joke country full of joke cabbages I bet they use metric

smashingjj 02-24-2021 04:21 PM

kiss the anus of a black cat

MyOneAndOnly 02-24-2021 04:22 PM

not a real country... just a highway rest stop for those on their way to invading Paris

MyOneAndOnly 02-24-2021 04:25 PM

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

MyOneAndOnly 02-24-2021 04:28 PM

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

smashingjj 02-24-2021 04:31 PM

good luck with that murca of yours

Alice 02-24-2021 04:32 PM

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PITY

MyOneAndOnly 02-24-2021 04:37 PM

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

Alice 02-24-2021 04:45 PM

Pls

Alice 02-24-2021 04:46 PM

This is a Cool As Ice Cream appreciation thread

Alice 02-24-2021 04:46 PM

Out of respect, let's try to stay on topic
