thamike: Lazy eye, vacant smile and plate of Brussels sprouts.  Rule #34?


As a person with a lazy eye (amblyopia), I'd just like to point out she does not have a lazy eye, she has strabismus

LabGrrl: I do not understand Brussels hate. I think they are great. Everyone I know who hates them seems to hate all vegetables, anyways.

/All the sprouts on the xmas table will be consumed by me.
//Om nom nom


I was never a fan of them but mother would crack my knuckles if I didn't eat them. So, I would always choke them down first how that the rest of the meal could wash away the bitterness. Now I have recently found that if you bake them slowly along with and in the juices of a roast, they are amazing and just melt beefy goodness all over the taste buds.

You just have to buy them fresh and be sure to not cook them too long.

I love brussels sprouts.. the more the merrier... keep 'em coming!

Oh the way to 'neutralise' the effects of sprouts is to boil them with onion and worcestershire sauce... trust me, I do that every year and nobody suffers!
I prepare mine in advance though, maybe that helps too. But you can rest assured, I'll be eating them well into the new year and beyond.
Excellent in stir-fries and fabulous roasted with garlic or deep fried in a southern-style coating.
If I can convert tofu haters into tofu lovers, then I'm doing something right!

/three generations of sprout lovers all alive and looking forward to Christmas day
//probably need to get more sprouts in before the end of the week.
///prefer savoury foods to sweet things any day.
////having a low-fat vegetarian Christmas (Quorn Sunday roast being the centre-piece of Christmas dinner)
//I also do an amazing vegan orange sauce to accompany...
//NOBODY MENTIONED STUFFING YET.

All veggies from broccoli to asparagus to corn and potatoes are ghastly. I'm guessing the only thing that makes this girl smoking hot are the continuous stream of blue darts coming out the other end. She could probably rent herself out as an eternal flame to some bereaved family.

Did I miss a memo? It seems that the definition of "smoking hot" has been expanded to include "British hot".
I guess it's an improvement.
 
2012-12-23 11:41:31 AM  
She's very pretty and has good taste in vegetables. What's with the tag, Smidiot?

bikkurikun: Why are Brussels sprouts a holiday food in the UK?


This! I'd never heard of it before this year. Hardy winter vegetable or something?
 
2012-12-23 11:45:45 AM  
Why is this surprising? Cabbage is a staple of English cuisine, and Brussels sprouts are essentially tiny cabbages.
 
2012-12-23 11:46:58 AM  
She's not bad at all, but she's 26 going on 43.
 
2012-12-23 11:49:11 AM  
But, does she BEEF?
 
2012-12-23 11:50:58 AM  
Making these to have with Christmas dinner.

I was expecting something hideous, but was disappointed :C

metal_gear: I bet the smell of her urine could run you out of the house!


If you want funky urine smell, here ya go:

1. Get a bundle of asparagus from your grocery store. Get thin stalks, not thick ones; thick is tough and flavorless in the asparagus department.
2. Steam it; don't boil it. It takes about 12 minutes on high steam, give or take a few seconds. Boiling takes away all the good parts.
3. For a super tasty treat, coat that asparagus with http://allrecipes.com/recipe/blender-hollandaise-sauce/. If you are extremely lazy and cannot do squat, much like the current president of the United States who is capable of spending trillions of his citizens' tax dollars and not explaining where they went, just a little garlic salt will do.
4. After an hour, enjoy that funky urine smell!

I thought they were called "crumpets" or "bonnets" or something stupid like that in England.

stratagos: Smoking hot and The Sun, eh? Yeah, think I'll pass on the click


Well, the going trend is not so much Susan boyle and Honey Booboo's mom, but more woman next door that's clean and has good teeth that you might do given half the chance.*

*Let's be honest, with the fark populace, that IS a moderately attainable Smoking Hot. IE if you were the last man on the planet, she MIGHT consent if you're a decent human being.

/collective "you"

Block half her face with you finger and then the other half. It's 2 different people!

Not smoking hot, but cute enough.

So...brussel sprouts cause single eye gigantism?

You must be new here...

Strabismus (the cause of amblyopia) is often referred to as lazy eyed.  Will you settle for wall-eyed?  I wouldn't want to spark an incident between disparate factions of the visually impaired.

WTF Indeed: English Food Joke :To be fair, when you take into account all other English food, 10,000 Brussel sprouts doesn't sound too bad.

Real Joke: She really, really hates the Dutch.


*snert*

Good either which way!
 
2012-12-23 12:00:09 PM  
Love sprouts. If they're bitter, you've overcooked them.
 
2012-12-23 12:00:17 PM  
10 large Brussels sprouts, quartered
8 slices of thick cut applewood bacon -- cook until crispy

crumble the bacon
put the quartered Brussels sprouts and bacon in a pan and drissle with extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste (I used very little salt, and a moderate amount of pepper)
bake in oven on top shelf at 400 degrees, until the Brussels sprouts are browned on one side
 
2012-12-23 12:03:43 PM  
Brussels sprouts are freaking AWESOME! I just wish they weren't so expensive.

Suck it, haterz!
 
2012-12-23 12:05:24 PM  
Just don't boil them and they are fine - which is good advice for any green vegetable. Roast, steam, or sauté.
 
2012-12-23 12:05:29 PM  
Good for her. Brussels sprouts are farking delicious.

Once again, fark submitter's definition of "Smoking hot" is strange. I guess if it "ain't over 250", that qualifies.
 
2012-12-23 12:15:29 PM  

BitwiseShift: A pleasant looking blonde girl with an extreme oral fixation who likes putting small things in her mouth -- that's nice.


Definitely would not work for me.

stratagos: Smoking hot and The Sun, eh? Yeah, think I'll pass on the click



She was moderately attractive. Smoking hot is quite an exaggeration, but she's quite definitely farkable. She's smoking hot by British standards.
 
2012-12-23 12:18:47 PM  
Did someone hit her in the right eye with a brussel sprout?

"You gotta cut me! I'm going in for another plate"
 
2012-12-23 12:20:15 PM  

ParaHandy: Key question: would you dump her for farting constantly?


She would definitely take anal sex out if the question, the smell coming out if her ass could take down any man.

2012-12-23 12:23:27 PM  
the lighting and the quality of the image and the lack of quality in the article and theme tells me that what we're looking at is an image supplied by the Brussels Sprouts Growers Association supplied to "The Sun" so that they can shill for the BSGA without the BSGA actually purchasing advertising space.

Makes perfect sense to me.
Loves me some sprouts.  Not available at home.  None available at take aways either.  8-(

unlikely: If you get the really large Brussels Sprouts and break them up like lettuce, you can wilt them in butter and garlic and they come out fantastic.


Mmmmmm....or roast them. They come out tasting kinda savory, a bit meaty.

bmihura: stratagos: Smoking hot and The Sun, eh? Yeah, think I'll pass on the click

One thing I've learned; never click on any UK link, especially "Daily Mail" (not this link) which sucks so hard that black holes are worried. Didn't do it, won't do it.


But it's the Sun.Always worth a visit to Page 3.
 
2012-12-23 12:28:05 PM  
27+ a day which sounds excessive, but is only 216 calories. At 1g of carbohydrate and 1 g of fiber per 21g sprout I would rather eat cardboard and a roll of smarties.

It's the only page worth looking at, and they know it too. Got a Sun banner ad (on a less-than-cheesy site in fact) yesterday. The pitch: a picture of Kim Kardashian's cleavage, with the promise that one of the nipple is in the paper. Really.

I think she might be one of those genetic chimera, with the left half of her face belonging to her twin sister who fused with her during pregnancy.
 
2012-12-23 12:35:30 PM  
I take it the terms "smoking" and "hot" are both referring to the gasses jetting from her anus?

Jingle smells. *snerk*
 
2012-12-23 12:41:59 PM  

grumpyoldmann: For once a subby got the smoking hot part right. And I'd eat everything in the picture.


I wholeheartedly concur. You yahoos downing her appearance are either married or haven't been laid in years. Oops - same thing.

She'll be a joy to be around... unless you're into that thing, ofcourse.

/Replacing her eyes with sprouts was too much effort.
 
2012-12-23 12:44:28 PM  
10,000 Brussel sprouts a year! Hate to see her underwear. Or be in the same room with her for too long. Brussel sprouts gives me a case of gas that only rivals the White Castle's gas.
