Thanks to having a vegetarian child, I’ m slowly becoming aware of the sheer number of vegetables that never made it to my midwestern household as a kid.  Did you guys know there’s something called quinoa?  It’s actually pretty okay, especially when ya throw in some mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes, and I’m super happy to have avocado as a regular part of my diet.  Still, growing up in the 70s in Kansas, your choices of vegetables were pretty much carrots and peas, with the occasional choice of broccoli or cauliflower, leading to today’s meatless query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) would probably have soaked whichever in a sea of Velveeta cheese sauce, asking: You MUST choose one or the other: Broccoli or Cauliflower?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
