thesaurosie commented on the word brussels sprouts
"Although Peter Pan author J.M. Barrie did not like the taste of brussels sprouts (as would befit a boy who never grew up), he often ordered them at restaurants. Why? "I cannot resist ordering them. The words are so lovely to say.""- http://www.neatorama.com/2007/01/11/literary-eccentricities/
