Re: Holy basil


It's very useful when figuring out botanical latin riddles.  
When Frank Gorshin attempted to destroy Gotham City's Herbarium, what did Bat Boy say to Batman?

Pam, the holy basil is going gangbusters. Don't quite know what to do 
with it. Ms. Fatma says her mother--the consummate Turkish bitch--once 
pointed this plant out to her and pronounced it sacred. Since Ms. Fatma 
was about 10 at the time, and terrified of her mother, she didn't ask 
why, unfortunately. But there you have it. Crushed leaves  also smell 
different than Greek, African, Thai basils. Wonder how one uses it. 
Wonder if one uses it at all or simply worships it :>)
