Artichokes are the BEST. Whenever I come home for a holiday or something, my mother makes artichokes for me. They are most definitely my favorite vegetable(they're a vegetable, right? I don't even know).

I don't even know what an artichoke looks like.

*google image search*

Ohhh. Never had one, at least not in a recognizable form.

They are good on kebabs.... red onion, artichoke, orange pepper, pork, repeat. Barbecue and baste with whatever is handy.

Nah, the best kebab is meat 1, meat 2, meat 3, meat 4, repeat. Vegetables belong on the side.

I find it inconceivable that someone wouldn't know how to eat an artichoke. That's like not knowing how to read. I mean, sure, I know academically that some people can't but it's difficult to comprehend the true horror of it.

At this point I must point out that you are an artichoke wimp if you only eat the heart and not the whole thing.

I feel out of place for never having eaten an artichoke.

Actually, come to think of it, I don't think I've ever even seen an artichoke in person.

Strange.

Even though you added the (adj) i still read that as having sex with artichokes. And now i'm wincing. Nice pun on the title, though.

Artichokes are evil incarnate.
So, I got tired of the fact that the appearance of my band name in my signature made my posts on this forum the dominant result when googling for my music. Anyway, if you think I might happen to be a good musician, you can test this theory here.

Artichokes are only good with a lot of butter. Any food that requires large amounts of butter isn't good.

You know, I've just realized why the man thread slowed down so much. We've reached the point in mandom where we've discussed all that needs to be discussed and find no need to interrupt the completeness of silence except to discuss additional manly things as they arise, or to belch, fart, or ask for another beer.

The girls, however, are still chattering away about nothing much.

Artichoke on pizza is pretty good. If you're gonna have a vegetarian pizza, or something.

Otherwise I'd like pepperoni and bacon. Mmmmmm.

If someone posts a quote and doesn't add anything (or only adds QFT), please don't reply to it. Their post and your post are likely to be deleted, as they have been in this case.

Now Aisling's post looks weird and out of context.

I'm lazy. No going to the gym for me today. I think I was probably more fit when I was still doing show choir (Oh me yarm Oh that's manly), but outside of bad posture sometimes, I'm okay (besides, slouching makes it easier to follow the ceiling tiles).
I walk a lot though now.


Bacon is good. Artichokes are the king of all vegetables, and asparagus the queen.

I don't like many bikini models because a bunch of them look like angry transvestites with boob jobs. However, I'm not morally opposed to the concept of the model. One important thing to make clear is that there is definitely good modeling and bad modeling.

2 NSFW sites:
domai.com features plain old nudity, maybe not too much different than the idea of life in a nudist colony. The people that usually frequent there are intelligent and sensible, not the "Oh me yarm Oh check out her hott ass LOL HSWMOTF" you can see elsewhere.
nnconnect.com features non-nude models that are incredibly sexualized. While most people reject nudity or looking at a nude lady, at least in the US, because of a perceived sexual element, clearly it is not the lack of clothing that sexualizes the nudity but its existence, and similarly stemming from that an overemphasis of the female sexual organs and from that, sex.

So looking at a lady is not immoral. If a lady may find it uncomfortable (some do, and I can certainly understand that), I will try to apologize (thankfully this is rare). The best way to get around the issue is just to become friends with them, this way they don't get too upset if you do, because you're not a strange man or anything.
Hence I never, say, took the ladder theory thing seriously.

Off to bed. No lady tonight. Probably not tomorrow night either, because for social and moral reasons I find it best not to.

Last night Survivorman was on at the same time that Steve Irwin's shows were rerunning on Animal Planet. It was wholeheartedly decided that the latter was a crap-ton manlier than the former, especially after wrestling a croc after another one earlier in the day had broken his finger. His response? "No worries." He fixed it with tape. I'm actually surprised Irwin hasn't been mentioned already.

I saw an Animal Planet preview for a show called (I believe) "My daddy the croc hunter" today, a kid's show with his kids and him.

Isn't it kind of cruel to air them now?

EDIT: Pineapple is not one of the gods of the fruit world, it is a very nice fruit, sure. But it's annoying spiny yellow outside, and it's soft yellow interior,

Pineapple does not kill the taste of the cheese. I do not know what you've been eating, but I can still taste the cheese the way it was meant to be tasted. You don't have a layer of pineapple on the pizza, you have it sprinkled over the top. Pineapple has the same exact effect as other toppings; nothing. Also, I keep the marinara sauce and don't do BBQ sauce, so I guess it's not "Hawaiian." Whatever.

My dad and I always get Half-Ham&Pineapple Half-All Meat. None of the taste spreads. Zilch. I eat his side of the pizza both hot and cold and it tastes as it should be. One slice may have a pineapple on the top of it, but that does not detract from the flavor.

[Edited in your post to take away the things that are not, in fact, superior to pineapple]
