Kids Say the Darnedest Things About Geography and Food

Today, one actually confessed to liking Brussels sprouts, which spawned the following exchange:

ME: Me too. And guess what--they're from the same country where the saxophone was invented! Do you know where Brussels is?
KID: Italy?
ME: Nope, starts with the same letter as Brussels.
KID: Oh...Belgium.
ME: Right, and the guy who invented the saxophone is from there.
KID: So he invented Brussels sprouts, too?
