Joke of the Week: Fern Follies


It's Monday, which means it's time for your weekly dose of locavore levity: the Joke of the Week! This week's joke comes from Montpelier's Maggie Lenz. Take it away, Maggie…

I am much better at caring for cats than caring for houseplants. Cats are basically just houseplants that can find their own water. If ferns could drink out of the toilet ... well, then I'd still have a fern.

About That Joke
Says Lenz: I kill plants. It's that simple. Cats, however, flourish under my "care."
