Brussel Sprouts

Yaxlich has just read about a man called Richard Townsend who has failed to set a new world record for eating the most Brussel sprouts in a minute. He fell seven short of the world record of 43 which was set in December 2003 by a man called Dave Mynard.

Mr Townsend has been preparing for his world record bid by eating sprouts every day for the last six months.

Yaxlich suggests that Mr Townsend is single.

Yaxlich, if it ain`t come out now


Blogger Wendz said ... (4:30 pm) : 

Wouldn't that also make him completely mad, as well as single?


Anonymous john.g. said ... (6:44 pm) : 

Yaxlich, John.g. has a question for
your learned readership.
He has just heard on the news that each household pumps out 11 tonnes of carbon emissions a year. How do they measure that? I thought gas was measured by volume, not weight.
Big scales, or big green taxes?


Blogger Sally Lomax said ... (7:53 pm) : 

Unless of course Mrs. Townsend is also running the world marathon in sprout eating, in which case maybe its a bit like garlic. You don't notice if your partner's been eating it too..

John.g, definatley taxes. This Labour government would tax the air that we breathe if it could.

to john g.:

they probably use the atomic weight of said substance to calculate it.


Blogger Yaxlich said ... (10:46 pm) : 

John G - are you referring to the hamster thing with toilet rolls?

Wendz - sadly the two things seem to go together these days

Sally - Yaxlich thinks that eating Brussel sprouts every day for 6 months is hradly likely to go un noticed

Anonymous - Yaxlich agrees even though he doesn't read the Daily Mail, Anna

Goo - Yaxlich is in awe of your cleverness

Sick, sick budgie. Eating Brussel Sprouts (BS) is a form of torture outlawed in most developed countries.


Blogger Yaxlich said ... (1:03 pm) : 

He definitely isn't a budgie, Tish.


Blogger f:lux said ... (8:53 pm) : 

At least he's getting his 5-a-day, albeit in pure spout portions, but... what about the rest of us - can he be blamed for global warming?


Blogger Yaxlich said ... (11:47 am) : 

Him and the cows. They're both equally to blame. And the French. They'll have something to do with it.

Blogger Yaxlich said ... (10:28 pm) : 

If Mr Townsend would like to send Yaxlich an email (this can be done using the About Me section) using some kind of confirmable resource, he is more than happy to help in whatever way he can through his blog.


Blogger Annelisa said ... (1:30 pm) : 

So, Mr Townsend did this for charity... did he ever get back in touch?

Well done him for his fundraising!


Blogger Yaxlich said ... (1:56 pm) : 

Not as yet. Perhaps he had more sprouts over Christmas and exploded in a Mr Creosote style.
