Weapons of the Fallen

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.

How sad that someone lost their Brussels sprout.

You should have put up signs saying you'd found it. Right now, the police are asking that poor starving person, "Well, where did you see it last?"
