The 03/18/13 Joy Jar

17 Mar

Moi is lucky that she loves leafy green vegetables like kale and spinach. Moi loves cabbage as well. Tonight, moi had spinach with fresh mushrooms. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is spinach.

I don’t like spinach, and I’m glad I don’t, because if I liked it I’d eat it, and I just hate it.
Clarence Darrow


One man’s poison ivy is another man’s spinach.
George Ade

I was a really picky eater as a child. Because I was obsessed by Popeye, my mum and aunts would put my food in a can to represent spinach and we’d hum the Popeye tune and then I’d happily eat it.
Paul O’Grady


Foods I forced myself to try in adulthood that I now love include blue cheese, beets and pickles. And spinach. And kale. And rye bread.

Gillian Jacobs



Wouldn’t it be awful if spinach hain’t really healthful after all the th’ trouble it takes t’git the sand out of it?

Kin Hubbard in Abe Martin’s Wisecracks (1930)
