Edible Front Lawn   (+3)  [vote for, against]

Apparently front lawns are the #1 irrigated crop in America. What a waste.

Bio-engineers should create a strain that tastes similar to lettuce - that way we can at least eat it. Bonus if it's some kind of sugar cane hybrid.

//Bonus if it's some kind of sugar cane hybrid.// Because what America needs is... more sugar. Seriously? I mean, you guys put sugar in _everything_!

On behalf of all Americans everywhere I would just like to say that at one time not too long ago our ancestors needed calories the way humming birds do because without it our graves came much sooner.

...and then we invented Count-Chocola while spawning millennials, so...

S'true. In fact, the U.S. White House is made entirely of royal icing ... that's why Hillary loved to live there, and tried so hard to get back.

So much more style than the gingerbread house she had before ...

My front lawn is subject to frequent visits by at least 5 different cats from the local neighbourhood, something that I naturally encourage. The cats use the grassy area as an extended litter tray. This means that this is an excellent idea, provided the resulting crop is liquidised then tube fed directly into 8th of 7 via a substantial hose arrangement.

If you're producing liquified cat turds, they'll be needed for the next batch of election manifestos, shirley ?

//[*not a euphemism]//

That should be sold as a sticker, so that it could be affixed to all manner of printed material. Adding the phrase "[*not a euphemism]" to almost anything works well. For instance, "Birdseye* [*not a euphemism] fish fingers* [*not a euphemism]" or "Stoke Poges* [*not a euphemism] 5 miles".

Indeed, I would like such stickers - to use where my “Actual Size!” stickers (see link) are inappropriate

Ah, the black art of subject framing.
