Finally Someone Hits Back At The “Devils Vegetable” Brussels Sprout

 

Updated : Jun 17, 2009

Kids across Ireland have argued they should be banned from any form of dinner plate to no avail for years.

However a Royal Navy captain has struck a blow for hatters of the most prejudice against vegetable, the Brussel sprout and banned from his warship.

In even more encouraging news for sprout hating children he banished them for no other reason than he hates them so much.

Commanding Officer Wayne Keble OBE, of HMS Bulwark, says sprouts are the "devil's vegetable", reports the Daily Telegraph.

No-one on board, including his 390-strong team of sailors and Royal Marines, are allowed to eat them.

He brought in the boycott because he "hates" Brussels sprouts but denied a rumour he introduced the ban because they make his crew suffer from flatulence.

Capt Keble disclosed details his ban after he was asked to confirm reports he had banned fried foods from his ship.

He said: "The only thing I have banned on board is Brussels sprouts. They are the devil's vegetable and the only thing I do not like, and the only thing I hate.

"Brussels sprouts are absolutely banned on board HMS Bulwark. I do not eat them so I do not know what the after-effects are."

A 2002 survey found Brussels sprouts to be the most hated vegetable in Britain. Their smell, considered unpleasant by many, is caused by sulphur compounds released when cooked.

A spokesman for the Royal Navy and the MoD claimed Capt Keble had only banned the sprouts from the captain's table.

But a source on board HMS Bulwark said: "This ban is no joke. The MoD can say what they like but Capt Keble runs the ship and he has categorically said that sprouts are banned."
