Re: [aroid-l] Woodchuck problem

Perhaps we need to look at alternative organic solutions. In Laos the farmers deal with extraordinarily destructive cane rats in padi fields by the simple expedient of BBQing them (the cane rats, not the padi fields).

So.... is woodchuck good eating? If yes, perhaps you could initiate a bounty system with the local kids (as is done in Laos; the kids use catapults with deadly accuracy (not just on the cane rats either; I had a bruised butt to prove that point)) and then have the woodchuck equivalent of a clam-bake?

  Hi All,

  BUT---the main question sshould be---

  "How much wood could a woodchuck chuck,

   IF a woodchuck could chuck wood?!?!?" 

  (a tongue-twister from my childhood)
