And I really do like parsnips. Alot.

Mmmmmm. Parsnips. Evidence that God truly exists. However I don’t know where that argument emerged.

At the risk of blowing my own trumpet, I lay claim to the ‘parsnip proof’, Eugene. And it’s a damn sight more convincing than the ontological argument!

My mother used to fry up sliced parsnips until they were crispy. Very tasty. But I haven’t eaten them in years.

Maggi Dawn had a Parsnip Soup recipe yesterday that I want to try.

Ooooh… that sounds good, RMcR! I might just go and fry some parsnips for dinner.

Hey, will you let me call you “Mac”? Eugene won’t let me and I want to be able to call someone that just so I can feel like John Kerry in NYPD Blue! :)

I’ve been called Mac, and I don’t mind it. Just don’t call me Bud. I hate that.

Hey Richard

I look forward to your systematic theology ThD thesis “Parsnips as Evidence of God.”

I’m working on a paper with the provisional title, “Fruit of the earth, bread of heaven: The parsnip as a proleptic realization of the presence of God”.

When I find a publisher, I’ll let you know. ;)
