Agreed. There's definitely a Welsh contributor obsessed with parsnips on this course. :)

It's not us, it's Owen. You'd recognise him in the street - quite broad in the shoulders, slim waist, tapering down to long, thin legs and small, muddy feet. Green hair. Very pale otherwise.

Strictly speaking, you're correct, but the 'it is I' form is rarely used these days,

Why is "I own these parsnips." marked as incorrect?
