Just when you thought cucumbers had it the worst.
Thanks to Junk Thief for illuminating a growing problem in the vegetable community.
Actually “rape” is pronounced “raaaapppaai” in Italian and is a type of broccoli.
Good to know. Must make point to ask Pal’s in the future to include phonetic spelling and etymology charts for simpletons like myself.
Thanks, Ladiez, for enlightening me on that point. That puts a certain incident in Venice in the early 1990s into a very different perspective.
In polite circles we call it broccoli raab, or, to preserve the Italian air, rapini.
My gosh, this blog sucks now.
Allan, what have they done to your work?
Turned it into illiterate, sophomoric shit.
