      Presume that’s the TM issue where they are unavailable due to being held for purchase but then freed up when sessions collapse.

    Why are the parsnips so angry? It’s a nasty stereotype that thick white vegetables are angry all the time.

            I was raised on turnips, cabbage and broccoli and hated them so much. The Christmas miracle is that I’m actually fine with all of them, now, but sometimes the past, it haunts me.

            Ehm, Cork is a city, like. So shurrup with your “mucker” slurs.
            I will freely admit to the notions bit.

            but I now realise that I hated vegetables because my mother would boil every last drop of flavour and nutrients before serving them.

            Now, I eat them while they still have a bit of crunch!

            Except for the turnip, presumably. ‘If a turnip goes crunch it’s your teeth for lunch’ as my dear old granny used to say.

            three things:
            1. I said “a bit of crunch”
            2. ignoring #1, raw turnip is loverly… with a smidge of salt.
            3. your granny’s din-chewers may have been a bit dodgy – but I have all my own teeth so can manage a bit of turnip!

      1. Clampers Outside!

        Fun fact, carrots were originally thick white vegetables (and other varieties of purple or yellow) until the white ones were managed or modified to increase carotene until they turned into the orange carrot we have today.

            True that, William of Orange and all that.

            I’m sure the illiberal far-lefties will, in continuing their current trajectory, have to ban carrots for their role in promoting monarchies, colonialism and Dutch patriotism… :0p’

      It’s the whole carrot and stick thing with addictive consumerism. People can easily be told they have to buy poop.

    The consumer panic always titillates me at this time of year.

        I just realised when you’re plotting behind someone’s back and feeling pretty pleased with yourself about it it’s smugduggery.
