Houseplants are a double threat

(via In a Dark Time)

" 'You all know the reason for the superciliousnesss of the camel?'
'No,' said [Peter] Brook.
'You see, the Koran has ninety-nine names for God, but only the camel knows the hundredth.'
'Hence his superciliousness,' said Brook.
'Exactly,' said the Leader."

--John Heilpern, The Conference of the Birds (1977)
