BABloggee Jeremy Theriot sent this picture to me. It looks innocent, doesn't it? Ah, certainly, until you see it from a different angle...


J'accuse! Obviously, they walk among us! Or, more accurately, they are rooted among us. If prickly pear cacti have roots. I think they do. Yeah, let's assume they do.

So maybe they're not a major threat, but have you ever seen one up close? I'm positive I don't want one probing me, I assure you. There's a reason they're prickly...

P.S. This one provides even more evidence that they photosynthesize among us.
