I was mostly a meat and potatoes as a kid, but over the years, I have added many previously excluded vegetables into my diet....with the exception of asparagus. This questionable food, along with liver, should only be fed to prisoners and captured terrorists.
As a matter of fact, if liver and asparagus were known to be served to this element if captured, terrorism and crime would be reduced by fifty percent. The only thing that would reduce terrorism and crime more would be a threatened sexual encounter with Nancy Pelosi, but I digress.
I have learned to prepare and enjoy spinach, brussel sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower and more. For the most part, I was served interesting and tasty dishes by several of my lady friends and I soon realized what I had been missing. Moreover, the vegetables were good too.
But there is nothing that can be done to either asparagus or liver that pleases me, other than giving my allotted portion to someone that I dislike. Maybe one day I will stumble upon a recipe for these foods that I can enjoy. Then again, probably not.....
Two sticks of asparagus are walking down the street. One gets hit by a car and is rushed to the hospital. After performing surgery, the doctor comes out and tells the other asparagus, "I have good news and bad news. The good news is, your friend will live. The bad news is, he'll be a vegetable for the rest of his life."
