Oh!! Look at this!! Those people who can't stand vegetables aren't here commenting at all.. Interesting. Complain about the things I don't like, but if something is wrong with my food I will not make rude/ignorant comments because I want everyone to be unhealthy like me. Just like pigs, these people who think this way are the filth of the world.
