How long does it take a Brussel sprout to...

Wondering if the noble sprout has the fasted turn around into an urge to expel green gas. It makes me nervous if they are served at a restaurant when I am on a date with "miss possibly".

Thirty minutes after she eats it, just before the check arrives, so she'll pay the check out of embarrassment.

A most improbable scenario Virgil. You have distinguished yourself with that one. Doubt even the master of improbable, lapsed, would have thunk it.

It would put me in a quandry re "miss possibly" I dare say.

Greek legend has it that Sisyphus was obliged to roll a sprout up Everest with his nose, forever.

"Just don't give me one with Marmite on," he pleaded.

I'll take those points. 10 easy try-hard 'whacky' points.

Of course if a highly experienced and successful mountaineer had a picture of a Brussels sprout tattooed on their bottom it would get up Everest in quite a decent time, I expect.

That would be cheating in my book.

How about if Jacob Rees-Mogg had a picture of a Brussels sprout tattooed on his bottom and promised to climb Everest at a date to be determined? That would slow it down a bit.

Why Everest? Where is the funding coming from?

It's a tall mountain, so half way up the tired little sprout should everest.

Ha! I did not see an Alpine pun coming.
