Polls Close: Brussels Sprouts Win!

by | Nov 5, 2008

Voting finally closed on last week’s poll question: Do you like Brussels sprouts?

Asked whether individuals “love em!”, “hate em!”, are “skeptical, but willing to try”, or are a “recent convert,” the most votes (37%) were tallied for love em! Add to this the 25% who claim to be recent converts and another 25% who remain skeptical, but willing to give them a try, and today is an overwhelming victory for Brussels sprouts on the dinner plate.

A mere 12% of voters claim to hate em.

Voters have spoken clearly that Brussels sprouts are no longer considered second class vegetables. They can proudly sit on the dinner plate next to traditional favorites like broccoli and potatoes, without being banished to a side plate to get cold and soggy. Brussels sprouts can rest easily knowing that they will be accepted for who they are, no longer having to disguise themselves under cheese or bacon bits. The myth of separate but equal has finally been put to rest.

It remains to be seen if this verdict will prevail in state and federal courts across the nation.

In other news, for the first time in American history a beet has been elected president of the dinner plate, defeating the turnip in a landslide victory. The beet won over voters by promising to bring change to dinner, and maybe even lunch. With this victory, the culinary landscape of the United States is certainly being redefined.

Also, with the passing of Prop 2 in California yesterday, some animals that share our dinner plates also notched a victory. Despite efforts of the opposition, Salmonella outbreaks may fall to dangerously low levels by the year 2015.

Thanks to all of you who made your voices heard in this election. The final results are listed below.

    First!Its good to see you stand up for the brussel sprouts that you believe in. It blows my mind seeing commercials on tv for horrible, tastless food and seeing it elevated as the American standard. Applebee’s, UGH!!! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a commercial for yummy brussel sprouts.

    So if John McCain is a Turnip, then what does that make Sarah Palin?! A carrot?

    No no no. Palin is a fungus. On the turnip.

    anon:I don’t know, most fungi I actually like. I cannot think of any vegetable that is actively against scientific research. Maybe mold? Then again, that is where penicillin was discovered.
