Why to they call them dandelions? They sure are NOT dandy (nor lions). They are a pain in the butt. They sneak into your yard, sprout them yellow flowers, then turn puffy, and let little seed things go everywhere.
You spray, they die, and more show up. It's almost like trying to take out zombies. (If you don't know what I mean, watch the TV show The Living Dead.) The guy who lives behind us lets the damn things grow without even trying to do something about them.
Now, I know that some people like to eat dandelions. And I don't hold that against them. I've tried them, but didn't like them. Even as wine.
Besides, I wouldn't eat the ones in my yard even if they hadn't been sprayed, 'cause, I'm sure our dog has sprayed them lots! Now, if you maybe had acres of them, then maybe they'd be okay.
But they are still like zombies.
If the world were to end, there would still be roaches and dandelions, I'll bet. And maybe mutant flying bunnies that lay mutant Easter eggs.
Who knows. . . it could happen!
