Last Week's Entries and Winner

The picture last week of bizarre vegetation certainly produced some very good suggestions.

  • Oh for goodness sake Shazz, me is not that gullible... me knows that is not a doughnut bush!!! Besides me ate one earlier and it tasted foul!!!.
    Greebo T Cat
  • Blort of Planet Six to Supreme High Commander of Spies: Greetings. Regret to inform that vegetative disguise proving troublesome. Human-creatures trying to pick my speebles, and squirrel-creatures trying to bury food supplies under my nether regions. Please advise.
  • Shazz has cleverly disguised herself as a member of the local wildlife in order to evade the mounting pub bill.
    Darth Zaphod
  • Illustrated Talking points

    ... of The walrus and the Carpenter, item four.

    'The time has come,' the Walrus said

    'To talk of other things

    Of shoes and ships and sealing wax

    Of cabbages and kings'
  • That turtle has a good cap. Furry tail though...
    Max Headroom
  • Here we discover that some modest Dutch flora are easily embarrassed by the expectation of foreign visitors that all gardens should have tulips.

    (And, for bonus points, I guess Mina, because she wrote an Edited article about conserving water in the garden, and flowering kale is a low water user, even when it bolts in the winter heat here in LA.)
    Sea Change
  • The lampposts would appear to have turned into a huge bowl of flowering kale and a very surprised looking whale (which does not appear on this picture, unfortunately) at an Improbability Factor of eight million seven hundred and sixty-seven thousand one hundred and twenty-eight to one against.

    And I'd be voting for Mina too, for reasons of my own
    Toy Box

And the winner is... quizzical! Congratulations quizzical! Just send an email with your snailmail address to [email protected] to receive your very own copy of a Paper Post and a signed picture of Greebo T. Cat.
