"im not owned! im not owned!!", the lettuce continues to insist as it slowly shrinks and is transformed into a big mac
This was a good tweet I did https://twitter.com/tinysubversions/status/895356062664056832?t=JI5faZ32wZQ059RmnrgOsA&s=19
a variety of interpretations
- veggie burger?
- investment? like "buy your own franchise?"
- lettuce is going extinct, soon to be the stuff of legends? (read from left to right)
- if you plant a burger, it makes a plant? (read from right to left - it does explain the seeds)
@darius Lettuce has found an extremely powerful niche in ecology, known as "enjoyed by humans".
I have read multiple papers specifically discussing the evolutionary success of plants that produce useful products for humans, even a conjecture that these plants are altering humans to suit their ecological fitness just as much as humans are altering them. Think about what made humans go from hunter gatherer to permanent settlement? Plants! Specifically grains such as wheat and barley!
@darius Thanks to you, every time I see an Animorphs reference, I will think to myself "im not owned! im not owned!"
