Throughout the ages man has studied plants and come up with some fairly wonderful ideas. Your assignment today is to post a photo of a plant and explain how a certain idea or invention was directly attributable to that particular plant.

For example:

A woman in Ohio in the early 1700's saw this plant and came up with the idea for bottle cleaners.

Another example:
Rastafarians saw this plant and were inspired to try a revolutionary new haircut.

Still another example:
Some fans on the way to a Lions versus Christians contest saw this plant and came up with the idea for "the wave"

Please offer your contributions.

I have a feeling this might turn out to be the most exciting game ever seen on A2K.

Thanks for playing.

Someone thought this would be a good thing to walk around with when hungry, and invented 'corn dogs'

Years ago, someone saw a bunch of black-eyed susans on the side of the road.


Went home, thought about it, and the next day he invented false eyelashes!

This plant inspired our ancestors to do something different with their hair. This is the earliest traces back to punk hair.


These plants puzzled many botany experts.


These plants were discovered from ancient times, to produce a nice red fruit, thus spaghetti sauce became the staple diet of many tribes.

Dr. Floyd became enamored with the beautiful bertha in a field not dissimilar to the lovely one above.
Bertha, it seems, stood out in a crowd, much like a flower or a peacock in full colour, she was loud and had a naughty side to her. Charged with this loving image, he set out, created the flashing XXX signs and Diner kitsch.

Gustav is so right:

Actually, Adam didn't eat an apple in paradise.

He saw this cactus ...
