Sowing God’s Seed
So it seems that a kind yet sorely misguided neighbor of mine thinks that subtle hints might nudge me toward salvation through their imaginary sky daddy. I found the following trinket stuck in the soil of a potted plant that I left outside the other day.
I find it ironic that the particular plant they chose was a Dieffenbachia, which is commonly called “Dumb Cane.” If ingested, this plant’s poison will swell the mouth and tongue rendering the consumer unable to speak (hence the name dumb, as in “deaf and dumb”). And it’s almost always fatal to dogs – and dog spelled backward is, well, you know. Perhaps all proselytizing Christians should chow down on some of this stuff.
Time began in a garden? Perhaps it was the Garden of eDumb.
