Egg and Cress -WTF?

Why is it that every single time I order an egg sandwich (a personal favourite of mine) from a city centre cafe it comes with CRESS??




WTF is cress?

I'll tell you what it is. It's a plant that you grow at school. Yes, when they're teaching you all about plants and growing things and nurturing etc, when they're explaining to you at 5 years old that plants need water - they have you grow CRESS. And it's not just me that happened to. My son had to grow cress last year. My friend's daughter has to grow cress. I had to grow cress, all my friends I know had to grow cress at school. It's a British phenomenon.

I always wondered... why cress? But now I have figured it out. Primary school children are forced to grow it to feed the demand for uneccesary bits of plant in egg sandwiches.

IF I WANTED A PLANT IN MY SANDWICH I WOULD ASK FOR IT!

Cress??? Wtf is the point?

There you go! Just say 'Hold the cress', because otherwise you'll get it... Not this side of the pond... Iceburg lettuce probably...
