Scotland Yard Hijinks pt 3
Lestrade: Hey, why are potatoes so popular?
Sherlock: John, throw something at him. Something heavy, preferably.
Lestrade: They’re the most appealing vegetable!
John, busy, not looking up: Potatoes aren’t vegetables, are they? They’re tubers.
Lestrade, irked: Same thing.
John: Besides, you can peel loads of vegetables. You can peel mushrooms, for Christ’s sake.
Sherlock: And people wonder why I tolerate John <3
John, getting into the topic: I mean, are mushrooms vegetables? Is lettuce? Garlic? Don’t even get me started on the fucking difference between a chick pea and a potato.
Sherlock, wondering: …Cicer arietinum…??? Different botantic family, to start with…
Lestrade: …?? What… wait? What? What is the difference?
John, flatly: No one would pay to have a potato on them.
Lestrade: …ohmygod- *wheezing*
Sherlock: People pay to have vegetables put on them?
