“Ketchup is a VEGETABLE.”
“Eat your vegetables.” As an American child, you no doubt had that phrase condescendingly said to you just moments before everything turned red and when you woke up the man in the police uniform was asking all those pointed questions about where the school’s nutrition councilor has gone. If your parents ever tried to make you eat Brussels sprouts, you’re legally allowed to emancipate yourself. The point we’re trying to make is that we as a country hate vegetables- there’s a reason why no self-respecting American would ever eat a salad unless the word “Taco” was involved somehow.
Yes, it should come as no surprise that we at AFFotD, who employ “fuck nature” as a mantra and constantly express our love of fried foods and liquor, are not particularly fond of vegetables. And why should we be? If you think about it, vegetables are horrendously disgusting. Vegetables come from the ground, which means that we’re eating something that basically spent a large portion of its existence living in dirt. That’s gross. Dirt is where worms fuck. Would you want to eat something that grew out of Dennis Rodman’s sex swing? We didn’t think so.
Our hatred of vegetables is deeply rooted. We’d also like to think it’s deeply American. And thankfully, some lawmakers agree with us on that front. Why else would they attempt to classify pizza as a vegetable?
…Hold on a second…sorry…we… we promised we wouldn’t cry. We’re just so happy. So proud. Here’s your fun fact.
