What the deuce is a ramp

Phoenix- GA 2017-06-29 22:58:54

Its an incline generally purposed for transportation across elevations

Mayor of Fashtown 2017-06-29 23:57:50

Ramps are a species of wild onion that grows exclusively in Eastern North America. They're best described as a cross between onion and garlic in flavor, but sweeter and milder than both. In texture they're similar to green onions. They're also called wild leeks in some places. They can't be farmed because they take years to mature from seed to flower, so they're exclusively foraged. I'm still lucky in that all I have to do is walk five minutes down to some wooded hills to find thousands of wild ones.

Most people don't know this, but Chicago was actually named after these wild onions. The etymology of Chicago was a Francocization of the injun word Shakawa, which referred to these onions, as they were plentyful in the area where Chicago was founded.

NuckFigures 2017-06-30 06:47:00

Or not Shakawa, *shikaakwa, according to wikipedia.

@Lupus_Dei - NC if you eat a mosquito burger and the mosquitos have been chowing down on AIDS infected jungle people, do you get AIDS??

Pork chops, bacon, sauerkraut, new potatoes, sour cream dill sauce. Jew/Muslim repellant. Good food of the Gods. Grows nice strong Aryans. 💪🏻

Brad made this for me yesterday for lunch

NuckFigures 2017-07-06 04:27:30

I tried to grow beefsteak last year, but unfortunately many of them developed blossom end rot due to drought.

Campin' Carl 2017-07-06 14:51:30

pineapple on pizza is the last implicit stand of canadian identity

YUGE 2017-07-06 16:55:06

Pineapple on the right pizza is amazing

MsNatSocialist 2017-07-07 00:41:14

Pineapple on pizza is my favourite. I also like it in burgers.

Archer 2017-07-07 00:45:38

You upside down people are strange

MsNatSocialist 2017-07-07 01:59:46

@Archer - you'll eventually catch up to the future. Pineapple is a thing in the future.

Archer 2017-07-07 02:00:53

Pine...Apple...does it come from a pine tree? My simple southern mind is not equipped to handle such odd concepts.

MsNatSocialist 2017-07-07 02:07:16

It comes from this @Archer :

MsNatSocialist 2017-07-07 02:07:48

YUGE 2017-07-07 04:22:03

@Archer I don't really care where it comes from but it's delicious.

NuckFigures 2017-07-07 10:26:03

Technically it's a berry. It's thought to have originally grown wild in and around what is now Paraguay and Southern Brazil.

NuckFigures 2017-07-07 10:26:58

The Spanish spread them around the world after they settled the area, like they did with corn, tomatoes, peppers and others.

NuckFigures 2017-07-07 10:29:06

The neo-marxists say we "stole" them from the redskins, but if anything we perfected them through centuries of eugenics. The corn and tomato strains we eat today are nothing like what the redskins grew.

Nikephoros 2017-07-08 00:03:03

It's an ananas
