There certainly is much pedantic assholery in the field of botany, Witness. Having worked as a gardener for the best part of a decade I know my onions, so to speak. :)

Haggis, served with neeps and tatties is a Scottish favourite, often consumed with a wee dram of whisky. It's really rather good if you don't think too much about the ingredients used for making haggis. That can make an Englishman like me shudder a little.
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

I'm sure botanist's conventions end in brawls when they start discussing Brassica and Sinapis genera… :twisted:

Not to mention the US Department of Agriculture doesn't fancy anything containing sheep's lights.

Some awful Yank bollocks about being unfit for human consumption. :Hungry2:

Yet they allow you to eat McDonald's hamburgers.

Fit for human consumption? I'd boil the fuckers, just to be on the safe side.

The Umercan palate demands that all foods be cooked until completely dissolved........................
