My money was on some sort of extreme bloating due to gas.

Brussel sprouts are tasty but goddamn, you best not be doing anything important for 1 to 2 days afterwards.

Like I needed another reason to avoid them.

There are like 200 varieties of brussel sprouts. Let's get the experts in here to discuss and dissect every single difference ad nauseam to convince ourselves there is nothing we can do about brussel sprouts.

FTA: However, this counteracted the effect of anticoagulants the man was taking because he had a mechanical heart.

They still have those???

A man from Ayrshire had to be hospitalised after eating too many Brussels sprouts last Christmas, it has emerged.

The traditional Christmas vegetable contain lots of vitamin K which promotes blood clotting.

However, this counteracted the effect of anticoagulants the man was taking because he had a mechanical heart.

What a mechanical man eating greens may look like.

Wait... is the BBC trolling us???

the man was taking because he had a mechanical heart.

Doctors at the Golden Jubilee Hospital in Clydebank eventually realised too many sprouts were to blame.

The case was reported in a festive edition of the Medical Journal of Australia.

Consultant cardiologist Dr Roy Gardner said

"Whilst..."? Jill Young gave a statement starting with 'whilst'. Never heard a person actually speak that word in my life TTBOMK. What a pompous little trollop she must be. In need of a good spanking, that one. Yes indeed. A good spanking, nothing too rough, just to warm up the buttocks and what not. Perhaps tell her she is a naughty girl, and rightly so. A naughty, naughty girl who has been bad. Quite bad. Behaving like a little Miss Snooty when we all know she's a dirty girl. A dirty dirty girl in need of a good.. - dammit, the phone is ringing, pardon me

Yeah, I forgot about the deep fried mushy peas I saw on sale in Fort William. That has to be in the top three of the most disgusting foods I've ever seen.

Man overdoses on Brussles sprouts

So he had 2 then?

I read it as "Man overdoses on Brussels, sprouts " and wanted to know what grew out of him.

This sounds like a case for Cisco Morris.

CSB:
I attempted to order two sandwiches whilst in the Subway drive-through yesterday. One turkey with provolone on white, the other veggie on wheat with no cheese. The speaker/mic was terrible. I had to repeat myself with the first sandwich, and the second was humorously challenging. I got vociferous: "No! No cheese on that sandwich! The sandwich is to be bereft of cheese!" I pulled around to the window expecting to finish my order, but it was ready.

Turns out the franchise owner/manager was the cashier, and just gave me the sandwiches for my trouble. Or, maybe because he was laughing too damn hard to otherwise handle the transaction.

Brussels sprouts are a foul weed that not even the greatness that is bacon can make taste better.

I once read (Fark?) that eating ten pounds of cauliflower in a sitting will kill you, due to the arsenic content.

You sound like you never cooked brussel sprouts with bacon.

I once bought bread from a man in Brussels. He was six-foot-four and full of muscles.

The skunkiness that turns people off is caused by cooking it too long, which gives sulfur compounds time to form. The trick is to cut them up into smaller pieces and sautee them hot and fast. Bacon helps, too.
