If he's a real man, he will smile and tell the person they might not be very bright.

Exactly. Veggies are so important for our health. It's a shame some people think like this.

How dumb. I eat more vegetables than my wife and I tolerate a greater range of vegetables. I like spinach and swiss chard, she doesn't .

Brave man. But I like spinach, too (I'm the one who told the yankees to feed their iced sugar stuff to the swine and I don't regret).

Do they count potatoes to the vegetables in England? As a German I eat them very often.

I only eat them for health. If they wouldn't be healthy, I wouldn't eat them at all and no salad either.

Was schmerzt dich denn so sehr an der Welt? Wenn ich nicht schmerzresistent wäre, müsste ich aber wirklich auch den ganzen Tag schreien.
