    An idle moment is dangerous - how many post responses mention "sprouts"?

    I've noticed that for some reason, topic responses that mention sprouts seem very popular, they run and run - can you put a number on them? And compare to other popular but random off-topic responses.

    The number is 235 "sprouts" posts, including this one.

    That's over about the last ten years, so not all that many really.

    There are another 203 "sprout" (singular) posts, including this one, with about a baker's dozen posts containing both the plural and the singular.

    I can't be arsed to break it down into the various meanings/uses of the word "sprout", so I'll leave that as an exercise for the reader.

    After skimming through the sprout(s) posts, it would seem the second half of yours is nonsensical. All seem to actually be on-topic, if you consider "bootnotes" and this forum on-topic. If you don't, you're missing part of the point of ElReg.

    Beer, because it's Friday ... and it's the perfect food to wash down Brassica oleracea.
