A MUCH better control measure for this pest plant (and others here in
Florida like Muscovy Ducks, Amaranth lawn-weed, escapee Xanthosomas and
Colocasias, Armdillos, 'possums, (no coons thought!) etc., consists of
inviting folks like myself, other Trinidadians, Haitans, Jamaicans, etc. to
live in your neighborhoods, we GLADY take care of these 'pests' to America!!
:--)> We even dispense recipes to assist you 'less-informed' folk! :--)>
Stewed armadillo in a rum/wine gravey, anyone?? Or dry-curried muscovy
duck, mashed air-potatoes w/ cheese and butter on the side, amaranth spinach
done 'chori badghi' choka-style??? Ah, you guys do NOT know what you are
Happy New Year!
>You may fend them off with a #5 iron, or, preferably, two held in the shape
of a cross, but thus enraged, they then annoy the community by flying
the air and releasing a carrion-like aroma which vermin find delectable.
Amityville, New York, was once attacked by the air amorphophallus potato,
was rid of it only by the bravery of some trenchermen who counterattacked by
means of garlic and melted butter. Unfortunately, these gentlemen died of
oxalate crystal poisoning before it was discovered that at the latitude of
Amityville, New York, frost effectively destroys the flying amorphophallus
potato. Embarrassment over these heroic and, as it turns out, needless
self-sacrifices is why you've never heard of the "Amityville Amorphophallus
Potato Horror." Happy New Year!<<
