I have to admit, I did a double-take when I read this report in the Telegraph.
A man has completed his challenge to push a Brussels sprout up Snowdon [the highest mountain in Wales] using his nose.
Stuart Kettell, from the West Midlands, took four days to reach the 3,560ft (1,085m) summit.
. . .
The 49-year-old trained for his charity mission by pushing a sprout around his garden with his nose. Mr Kettell said he selected a large sprout so it would not fall down a crevice in the rock.
. . .
''People definitely think I'm mad, and I'm beginning to think it myself,'' he said.
There's more at the link, including a photograph of the intrepid 'pusher' at work.
I've got nothing against Brussels sprouts: I eat a lot of them. I've got nothing against zany stunts to raise money for charity, either . . . but to take four days to push a Brussels sprout up a mountain with one's nose???
Verily, the mind doth boggle . . .
