How do you dodge your Christmas sprouts? As many of us know, surreptitiously feeding them to the dog can backfire in catastrophic fashion.

Bogof admires Stuart Kettell’s approach. Last week, he got rid of one sprout (four months early) by… pushing it up Mt Snowdon with his nose. He had to strap up his face in order to avoid injury, and crawl for three days to get it done.

The unusual labour raised a stack of cash for Macmillan Cancer Support: so Stu’s an inspiration to all of us - not just sprout dodgers.
