Smut's been working the fuligin angle lately... which brings up memories. It's been years since I've had to engage in monomachy, using a strange and deadly plant as a weapon. While strolling the Sanguinary Field recently, I found a weapon dropped by a fallen combatant:
Notice the number of orbs still remaining on the stalk... I imagine its wielder didn't last too long in the duel.
Confession time, I actually love Brussels sprouts, and I found them on sale in a market near work that I call the Food TARDIS- it's bigger on the inside than it is on the outside... it looks like a tiny little place from the parking lot, but it has a cavernous basement with a mind-boggling array of produce.
