Skipper of HMS Bulwark bans the sprouts

This story is strange and funny; when I was perusing today's online edition of the Sydney Morning Herald, I read "Navy Captain bans Brussels sprouts as 'devil's vegetable'" Apparently the skipper of the HMS Bulwark doesn't like the vegetable so he banned it for his crew of 390 sailors. Now when I was a kid I hated Brussels sprouts. But as an adult, steam them al dente, put loads of garlic, butter and a hint of parmesan cheese and they are delicious. I did have a good laugh reading the article. Although I think it must have been a slow news day for the SMH.
