Prune Weirdo

From the OXFORD COMPANION TO FOOD entry on prunes: "There was a time when the less knowledgeable people in the English-speaking world would snigger at the mention of prunes, which they associated with old age and laxative qualities, but such unsophisticates are nowadays rare." Calm down, weirdo! Nobody's laughing at your precious prunes.
