Wednesday Vignette - What Will They Think of Next?

In the big box store on a hardware run, of course I had to check out the garden section.

Imagine my shock when I came across these specimens that profess they're "Boldly Going Where No Plant Has Gone Before." Indeed, but WHY?
Kosmik Kaktus? Not only are they probably not cactus (I think they may have been some species of Haworthia) but in my opinion they are anything but cosmic. Tragic is more like it. The partially-obscured verbiage on the card appears to say the coloring doesn't hurt the plant, but I'm not convinced—I'm cheering for the little green and purple guy in the front row that seems to have escaped complete coverage by the paint sprayer. He may just have a fighting chance.

Yes, I'm opinionated, and I believe these bizarre little novelties have no place in anyone's home. However, at $5.98, I bet they find their way under a few Christmas trees this coming week. Please do NOT tell me if you are one of the buyers!

What will they think of next?
