I can't even think up a good subject for this
By Anonymous

Sundays until mid-June, I volunteer as a Master Gardener to give advice to folks in a particular greenhouse near me. I heard the following discussion, and moved in to help.

Older woman: "Why don't your impatiens ever re-seed themselves?"

Younger woman: "I don't know."

O.W.: "I thought if a plant's made by God, it would be fruitful and multiplying. Isn't that what's supposed to happen?"

Master Gardener: "See here, on the tag, the "F1 Hybrid"? That means that two different plants have been crossed to grow seeds with certain kinds of flowers. The seeds these plants have are probably sterile as a result."

O.W.: "Oh, so it's because MAN made them, and not God. Thank you very much."
