Cannot help it: after looking at those great asparagus graphics that accompanied The Obituaries, I had to post this great Yo La Tengo song from a great album (New Wave Hotdog/President Yo La Tengo).
BTW, as kid I hated the stuff, which my mother furiously over-boiled (did no one in 50’s and 60’s understand grilling and steaming?), thus causing the house to stink. She made the same miscue with Brussels Sprouts, btw, which I now like (grilled or roasted) a lot as well.
Viva les vegetables!
