Don't Slay That Potato  
Swiss experts say plants have rights too

A report by the government-appointed Federal Ethics Committee on Non-Human Biotechnology (ECNH) described interfering with plants without a valid reason as "morally inadmissible".

The committee looked at ethical views held on plants and issues of how their use could be justified.

t said that from a wider perspective, "all action involving plants for the preservation of the human race was morally justified"....

Well, that last part is certainly reassuring.

Current Music: "Carrot Juice Is Murder" (edited for accuracy)

Actually, the song title is "Carrot Juice Is Murder," but it's still quite apropos.

What the song is actually titled usually has little impact on what people call it, if the "common" name is better-known...

But the real name makes it easier to find the music video on YouTube:

Edited; thanks.

And now, Brethren and Sistern, I have seen the light, and recognize the eeevil of mutilating innocent plants for mere aesthetic gratification....

I just figured you were listening to the CD "Screams of the Vegetables" (which includes "Carrot Juice Is Murder").

I suppose this is where I mention that I've actually seen something called "Houseplants of Gor" online, right?

I don't know if I want to search for it or try to forget that I ever heard of it....
