Irina took issue with my definition of a brussels sprout...

I don't care what colour it is.  I don't like it.  I also don't like
cabbage.  Or spinach.  Or turnips.  Or swedes.  Or...oh, I'm not going to
give you a list of the vegetables I dislike.  It's fairly lengthy. :-)

On the other hand, I'm very fond of cauliflower, and of most pulses (except
butter beans).

But brussels sprouts deserve to be described by Nan Pilgrim! (hah! DWJ ref!)

Until the sky falls on our heads...
