Looks like I didn't give the broccoli enough space, but in my defense, the plants were so small!

When I lived in Aqaba, Jordan for a few months in 2007 (yes, the country), the local grocery store had this stuff marked as Prokly.

In their defense, there is no equivalent in Arabic for the letter "P." They use the same sound that we use for "B." So "Parking Lot" comes out as "Barking Lot," and "Prokly" comes out as .... "Broccoli." I'm sorry I missed the opportunity to take a bicture of the sign in the grocery store when I had the chance.

I was chuckling this morning as I took this "Bicture."
