@kfield: My husband refers to them as "filthy little cabbages." Blasphemy!

The man needs to be taken down to the town square and flogged. Why did you marry such a loser in the first place?

@kfield: The girls I sat with pretty much hated me, because we always got the lime popsicles, which no one liked.

      It's tales like this that make you fully appreciate
      how uncaring the universe is.

I got caught once trying to "stick" a piece of french toast to the underside of the table with syrup

      I hope everyone makes a mental note to not
      serve you French toast should you come to visit

@davidashton  "I had my own pet hates when I was a kid but now I eat pretty much anything veggie-wise.  My biggest hate was cooked tomatoes, and I'm still not too fond of them."

When I was a kid, I hated to eat - period. It was quite problematic, especially away at camp, which had a policy that the table of girls who cleaned their plates first would get the first choice in popsicle flavors. I got caught once trying to "stick" a piece of french toast to the underside of the table with syrup in my lame efforts to clean my plate.

The girls I sat with pretty much hated me, because we always got the lime popsicles, which no one liked.

@kfield: It is just completely incomprehensible that anyone could hate a sprout.

The world can be a harsh place -- all we can do is hold on to our core beliefs in things like beer and bacon (and sprouts)

@maxmaxfield "Very interesting, but the increased number of times a term appears in a publication doesn't necessarily coerrolate to increased popularity -- it could be that more and more people are saying that they hate sprouts LOL"

@kfield: ...at least according to the NYTs own analysis of the number of times the term has appeared in the publication...

Very interesting, but the increased number of times a term appears in a publication doesn't necessarily coerrolate to increased popularity -- it could be that more and more people are saying that they hate sprouts LOL
