Don't eat the skin though, it may be more hygenic than a sheep's stomach but it plays merry hell with the digestion!
Your description sounds absolutely disgusting.
Oh well, I understand, different people have different tastes.
But you dont have to eat the bread if you don't want to.

Thanks, David; I wouldn't eat those either. I've never tasted them, but I don't like the look or smell of them. LOL

And, Andy, of course the bread is the only thing I would eat! :wink: (As you know, probably. LOL)

I know it doesn't make sense, but I decide I don't like things if they don't smell or look right---I don't have to taste them to know I don't like them. I know; I'm weird! :roll:

Well no, turnips don't look too appetizing in the wild, but cooked and mashed and combined with brown sugar... yumm :twisted:

I do think this thread is totally hijacked :mrgreen:

Then why do some people persist in calling them neeps? :twisted:

Yep! Oops! And who's the hijacker? *raises hand* :wink: Sorry! I know, Penny. Go figure. Turnips? Tur-neeps? Neeps? *shrugging* And, nope, David, there's still that odd smell with them there "neeps." Ick! (And, yes, bad grammar intentional.) There's never anything I really like much at Thankgiving dinner either (when we go it's because it's a "duty." Aaack!). Except mashed potatoes & a little turkey. I am majorly finicky!

And now we return you to our regularly scheduled topic! :mrgreen:

MC4? :P (Well, if one C stands for "cat"--back-porch feral cat, that is---then technically that's my nick, but, nah, I'll stick to MC3.)

Rats, I killed the thread! :oops: Sorry! Come on back, everyone, with the funny/strange "You're reading WHAT!?" subject. It was interesting!

I just misread "A brief grammar of the Portuguese language" as "A BAD grammar of the Portuguese language." :roll:

I keep reading 'The Virginian' as 'The Virgin.'

Why is "Samson Agonising"

I must go and look up what it actually means (Samson Agonistes ) :oops:

I was going to read my section in Humor of the North, and for a minute, I thought it was Tumor of the North :roll:

Proof reader wanted for Wilkie Collins translation E - Ger
I didn't know East Germany had it's own language. Is that like regular German, only with fewer words for luxury items? :)

I just read "Tristram & Iseult by Matthew Arnold" as "Tristram Insulted"... :lol:
Constructive criticism is greatly appreciated!
