#2241: Brussels Sprouts Mandela Effect
[Cueball is standing between Ponytail and Megan talking to them.]
Cueball: I always thought of Brussels sprouts as terrible, but they’re actually really good! I can’t believe I let everyone mislead me!
[In a frame-less panel Megan replies. Below her is a footnote with a citation to back up her statement.]
Megan: It’s not just you! Farmers developed a less-bitter cultivar like 15 years ago.*
[Back to all three as Megan continues to explain while holding her arms away from her.]
Megan: Now the whole world is having this revelation, one person at a time. It’s like a real Mandela effect. We secretly switched to the parallel universe where Brussels sprouts taste good.
[Ponytail lifts a finger as Cueball and Megan turns to look at her.]
Ponytail: Also, licorice is good now.
Cueball: Whoa, really?
Megan: This is a trap.
Ponytail: And those silica gel packets that say “Do not eat”? Delicious.
Cueball: I knew it.
