    Giant Rodent Eating Plant in SE Asia

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/livescience/...anteatsrodents

    The 4 foot tall plant was recently discovered. It secretes nectar, lures rodents and other species and then digests them when they drown.

    Anyone a fan of "little shop of horrors"???

    You are so funny!

    (I was hoping I could plant some around the City I live in, then I read the article. It would be useless.)

    Unless I have included a link, it is my opinion and only my opinion that I am expressing.

    Who was the voice of the plant, anyone remember? I am too lazy to check, but what a BRILLIANT film...I have never looked at dentists the same way again.

    I am trying to figure out how to transplant it to the North Station T platform-those are the biggest sewer rats I have ever seen...I hate when it rains and they all come up out of the tunnels...

    I emailed that headline ("giant rodent eating plant") to my sister the other day and last night I got a call from my 8-year old nephew whose dad worked in a factory ("plant"). It seems my nephew read the headline differently than most. He called to tell me that he didn't think a giant rat could eat his daddy's plant!
    I know that you think you understand what you thought you heard me say, but, I'm not sure that you realize that what you heard me say is not really what I meant to convey.
