Yeah, can you believe those Scottish people having their own words for things? I am shocked and appalled! How silly.

Glad to see turnip is winning! You made the right choice, guys! (I know all of yous who voted 'rutabaga' knew it was the joke answer that didn't really count. Thanks for playing along!)

There's a street I pass all the time called Swede Road. Now every time I pass it, I think Rutabaga Road and giggle like a loon.
