Niall Horan vs A Cabbage

Back by popular demand… it’s Pop Star vs A Vegetable. This is where we take a pop star at random and see how they match up to a common garden variety vegetable.

This week: Niall Horan vs A Cabbage.


Back in the mists of time (well, during X Factor 2010 to be exact) Niall Horan was plucked from obscurity in Ireland and hand picked alongside Harry, Zayn, Liam and Louis to create One Direction.

Cabbage has been around for thousands of years. It was popularized by the ancient Romans as a form of sustenance and as a hangover cure. Eeew. We don’t know about you, but we’d rather not make the hangover any worse than it is, thanks.

Introduction to Europe.

Cabbage was introduced to Europe by the all conquering Romans and from there the plant was bred into the familiar form we know and love today

Niall Horan (as part of One Direction) was introduced to Europe in 2011 by the all conquering Simon Cowell, much to the delight of millions.

Cabbage comes in many varieties including red, green, purple and Napa cabbage.

Sadly there is only one variety of Niall Horan but we reckon the variety we have is pretty awesome.

Cabbage was very popular amongst the poorer classes in the 17th and 18th century but was looked down on by the upper classes. However the poor people had the last laugh because they had a nutritious food that was easy to grow.

Everybody loves Niall Horan.

It was recently reported that One Direction had the biggest selling album of 2013 in the UK with ‘Midnight Memories’ selling over 650,000 copies in less than two months.

It is unclear what the humble cabbage’s yearly sales are but we can only imagine they are not nearly as impressive as the above-mentioned statistic.

Niall Horan has recently been linked to Victoria Secret model Barbara Palvin.

The cabbage has never been linked to anyone due to its strong odour. Poor cabbage.

Book deals

Earlier this week we revealed that the One Directions lads will be bringing out not one, but TWO books in 2014.

The cabbage is still waiting on the call from his book editor. We wouldn’t hold our breath, cabbage.

Final Score – Niall Horan 7, Cabbage 2

Okay guys, this was a tough one but Mr. Horan was always going to be the clear winner here. We hope you enjoyed learning about cabbage as much as we did. Join us next time for more hard-hitting Pop Star vs  A Vegetable!
