Onions - Are we not men?
Onions
I don't like snails or toads or frogs or
strange things living under logs but
Oooooh, I love onions


In my quest to design a pizza that only I would ever eat, I initially decided on three ingredients: anchovies, pineapple, and mushrooms.
My mom countered that she would eat that pizza! So I asked her, what ingredient would she NOT eat? She replied "Onions".
Onions?! Onions?! How could a person not like onions? Then I remembered that my dad also claims to not like onions. I cannot comprehend this. He would probably like them if he actually TRIED them.

While I will concede that a raw onion is rather ... intense, everyone knows that a grilled or fried onion is sweet and delicious! A raw onion is tangy and crispy, and a perfect garnish for sandwiches!

In celebration of the oft-maligned onion, I have a list of the top 10 places to find an onion:
Pizza topping
Burger garnish
Fajita mixin
Battered and deep-fried
Greek salad
French Onion Soup
Salsa
Enchiladas
Dip
a monkey

All hail the king of tubers!

I'm all : pungent!

I'm half-way on onions, myself. I used to have people not put them on my food, but as time went on I enjoyed them more. However, I still at times will ask for no onions, because I might be at a place (either in my life or in physical space) where I don't want my ass to explode. Onion's sweet taste comes with a price.

That particular facet of the onion's personality is mentioned in the song I quoted.
