Rubes Cartoons - Tales from a Twisted Mind

RSS By: Leigh Rubin,

A cartoonish look at life...


Mar 10, 2010

I am always amazed at the incredible abundance of dandelions that spring up in my lawn. Despite my best efforts, whether it’s with weed and feed or by manually plucking them out one by one, nothing really ever stops their interminable, genetically programmed effort to survive. Mother Nature has devised some pretty ingenious ways of spreading seeds. Take for example the tumbleweed. It just keeps rolling along whenever the wind takes it spreading seeds far and wide. When it comes to dandelions what little kid could possibly resist the temptation to pluck one and then blow on it and watch a gazillion little fluffy white specks fly away? I am even guilty of this silly pleasure every now again. You see? Nature has fooled us into believing that helping weeds procreate is actually fun! Then there’s the aesthetic appeal. What could be prettier than a big yellow field of dandelions? Not much, I’d say. Now, if only the field wasn’t in my front yard that would be just dandy...and I ain’t lyin.’

You’ll have a dandy time at:
