“Our 3-year-old said she wanted a spirit guest. 3 exorcisms later, we realized she wanted asparagus”

"Asparagus” can sound like “a spirit guest.” The following was posted on Instagram on October 10, 2019:

my 3 year old kept saying she
“wants a spirit guest & needs a
spirit guest” and “has a spirit
guest” and like 4 exorcisms later, i
realized she was just talking
about asparagus.


“How did the vegan fix her flat?"/"A spare I guess” and “What did the bowling vegetable get on that last frame?"/"A spare, I guess” and “This asparagus is just a spear, I guess” are other asparagus name jokes.


Wikipedia: Asparagus
Asparagus, or garden asparagus, folk name sparrow grass, scientific name Asparagus officinalis, is a perennial flowering plant species in the genus Asparagus. Its young shoots are used as a spring vegetable.

So this mother’s 3 year old kept saying she “wants a spirit guest & needs a spirit guest” and “has a spirit guest” and, 4 exorcisms later, she realized her daughter was just talking about asparagus.

If cooked incorrectly, asparagus is just as scary as a spirit guest. Marinade asparagus in Italian dressing, then grill it.
