I had to provide a stool sample for an employment medical many years ago.
Apparently a small plastic jar full of corn kernels was all they needed.

Ditto nuts. But I still like eating them.

Cornish pasty made with St Austell's Tribute ale provides stiff competition...
Competition, yes - stiff, no.

As regards the aspargus, I believe that chambermaids used to hate the asparagus season. They didn't get to eat it, but they had to empty the chamberpots.

With apologies for the aviation reference, visitors to the annual Aero Friedrichshafen event will have noticed that it coincides with the spargel season in that part of southern Germany. Love the stuff, but haven't been brave enough to indulge in spargel liquor yet, and dread to think what the resulting discharge odour is like!

Is it May when asparagus should be in season? I foresee this thread reactivating as we create a surge in sales so we can all test our urinal pungency and olfactory keenness...

Depending where you live, you could have asparagus in April. We usually had our first small batch April 16th (N. Notts) as that was stepfather's birthday. Have to say it was better as starter with salt and melted butter than just plonked on the plate as a veg. We also had special plates shaped and coloured like leaves with two recesses for the condiments.

I don't get coloured wee after beet (which grew well for the first time this hear and we have a lot of it, canned and pickled, but then I am daltonic so I may be missing something, (besides rods and cones.)
