    Ok, I know I should wait until after April 1st to post this, but if Ozzy really needed two weeks to pull off this stunt, the joke would be on him.

    I'm writing because I picked up this thread only tonight after an encounter similar to Ozzy and his landlord. I was potting Sarracenia this afternoon when a couple walking by asked if they were calla lillies. I told them they were carnivorous plants, and they asked if they eat children. I said yes, of course they do. They were walking a Jack Russell terrier, and I said they eat small dogs as well. They laughed and said they would keep the dog leashed, but would stop by later with the kids.

    A few minutes passed and another couple with children stopped and asked about the plants. I offered to allow their kids to stick their fingers in the VFT, but they declined fearing they would be harmed (the children, not the plants). I assured them that they would be safe, but they just gave me a hard stare and left.

    The first couple stopped by later with their kids and allowed them to touch the plants with my permission because they knew that the plants were far more delicate than their kids. I sent the second couple via airmail to Ozzy's town .

    The bottom line is this. Even if this is a joke, it could happen. Ignorance and fear know no bounds and stupidity (along with tolerance) can live anywhere.
    My chicken legs taste like chicken--only less meaty.

    very true
    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.
