Ha ha very good LB... although it doesn't sound much like my little patch of grass, which is more than a little weedy . But I like the clover & daisies so
Oh josusa, your tale made me chuckle too. Poor rellies trapped indoors with artificial light and filtered air. The leccy bill must be humongous .
I have all the windows and doors open from dawn til night, come rain or shine. Not much of a mozzie problem here in the NW thankfully .

This is a well-known story that you can read on many websites. I would really like to know who the original author was, so as to attribute it properly.
Me too. I suspect it might have originated in America - spellings and references to plants like milkweeds. My brother sent it to me and it made me smile so I thought I would share it.
Not sure about the relationship between your link and the current discussion ; plagiarism?
Anyway I've been a great fan of Tom Lehrer for many years and I still listen to his songs from time to time just to enjoy his irresistible black humour.
Re the article posted by LB, this site https://richsoil.com/lawn/god.jsp quotes a reference to El Ojo Del Lago News, Guadalajara, Mexico, but unfortunately without an author's name.

IT CAME TO ME OUT OF THE BLUE.
I didn't for one second think that LB was the author of the text , just that she was sharing a funny story with us all. It made me chuckle .
Anyways. A man walks into a bar with a horse, and the barman says...
Oops I'd better not repeat that one either . You all know the punchline
WHY THE LONG FACE, KITTY?
Gold star for Pansy ? ?
Goes well with my golden oldie, eh?
Ahh - pansy and Kitty - but do you know the Dave Allen one about the man going into the bar...the one about the wolves?
One of my all time favourites.
Google it...you have to hear him doing it. Brilliant.
The other is the Tommy Cooper one about the man walking into a bar and saying 'ouch'. It was an iron bar...
