Potato? Silly billy, of course it didn't work. A mangelwurzel is the only vegetable acceptable to
Stercore Pluviam Maximus, the great God of Precipitation.

Mangelwurzel... I had to look that up... I was like "no way that's real"... but so it is! It's a beet.


Then I started looking up funny fruit/veggie names that didn't sound real. I came across puhala. It's a fruit. It's also known as pandanus fruit.

It comes in all kinds of varieties, and I think it has to be some of the coolest looking fruit ever:



And as always google thought I needed to see something like this:

Whoa! That is an awesome fruit. I'd eat it just because it looks amazing.

That watermelon (?) person's face looks how I'd imagine a scary alien to look.

That fruit does look really cool. The person with the melon for a head seems to be experiencing a WTF moment.

As to the Mangelwurzel I honestly would have thought it was made up too. As I would have just called it a beet.

Now would I just make something up in order to fox you guys?


Well, okay, I probably would.
I like the fact that it's actually real. Nothing better than finding out something you think is completely made up, is actually real. Like the first time you find out that Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch is an actual place, and not just some cat sleeping on the keyboard.

I lived a mile away from the good old LlanfairPG, it's entirely unremarkable. The name was purely a publicity stunt to make people think it was special and then go to it, but it's literally just any normal town.

On the plus side, the actual bits of Wales around it are really nice.

I fell for it, lol ! Years back we went camping in North Wales, near Betws y Coed, and just had to visit Llanfairetc. because with a name like that, it's gotta be special, right?
