I just visited my facebook homepage a while ago
and one of the status is

'does eggplant taste like egg?'

well, i've been wondering for long long time now..
but have no intention on touching this subject because i think its not that important

i mean..
so what if its name is eggplant..
you want to eat it..
then eat it
you hate then you hate it

when i read the status on fb..
i kinda kept thinking

why on earth that thing is named 'eggplant'
because it looks like egg????

uh oh...
i dont think so...
i mean...
look at this...

picture credit to abang google...
is this look like egg??

why 'eggplant'??

for this...
of course have to credit again to abang google
i found out that....(copy paste from wikipedia)

The name eggplant, used in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada refers to the fact that the fruits of some 18th century European cultivars were yellow or white and resembled goose or hen's eggs. The name aubergine, which is used in British English, is an adoption from the French word (derived from Catalan albergínia, from Arabic al-baðinjān from Persian bâdenjân, from Sanskrit vātiga-gama). In Indian, South African and Malaysian English, the fruit is known as a brinjal, which derives directly from the Portuguese "beringela".

but still
i cant seem to accept the fact that its name is 'eggplant'

anyone can explain?????
