Why, yes, there is. Cheetle.

I believe it originated from the first book of Sniglets, back in the early 80s.

I don't mind alfalfa sprouts as a garnish on a meat or cheese sandwich. But just sprouts? That's for rabbits.

Alfalfa are the more boring sprouts IMO. Everything else is bigger, crunchier, tastier.

It's not just sprouts, it was sprouts on a turkey sandwich and you could get other things on it as well (like cheese and other toppings).

Have you ever had mung bean sprouts? I don't know if it's an Indian thing because I only see them in Indian stores here, but they can be delicious. I like them with chopped up onions and tomatoes with some lemon juice. They're just a pain with the germinating part and all.

They have them in Korea, often used in soups, I never thought of having them in sandwiches, though. This warrants experimentation.

Oh the mung bean sprouts are separate from the sprouts in the sandwich. It just made me think of them. But yeah, could be good!

I love sprouts on sandwiches, along with other things, like deli meat, cheese, lettuce, mustard. I also like a little Italian salad dressing in there, too.

First World Problem: Too much salad dressing on a sandwich makes the bread soggy!

Yeah that's what I mean, mung bean and everything else are tastier imo than alfalfa. You can buy them everywhere here and asian stores have HUGE bins of them.

That sandwich would look better with out the fake pressed turkey meat

My clothes weren't drying because the vent was clogged with lint. Why doesn't the lint go into the lint trap? Grrr.

Re: First World Problems

I hate when pelican crossings take too long to change. You press the button and it's supposed to change the lights to amber then red so you can cross the street. But you wait and you wait and you wait, until finally, about 10 minutes later, they change.

Why does it wait? To let some more traffic through? Why? There's always going to be traffic, it makes no difference to the traffic whether it stops now or in 10 minutes. So why make us wait? It makes no sense and just inconveniences pedestrians for no reason.

Because if it is a busy crossing with people crossing all the time, and the lights change as soon as you press it, the lights will be almost permanently on red for the traffic.
