News Flash: Killer Rose Bush Attacks School Bus

A Dr. Van Fleet rosebush attacked a school bus on the afternoon of 5/5/08. The bush had grown out of a yard and onto the pavement of First Street. Thirty forth graders on board the bus were saved by a weed wacker welding Manly Man. Mr. Man arrived just in time to keep the bush from puncturing the tires and taking over the bus by brute force. The Tiny Town Texas police voiced shock and awe at size and thorniness of this monster plant. An emergency meeting of the Tiny Town Texas Garden Club convened in order to discuss tactics to keep the monster under control to avoid further incidence. The Antique Rose Society of Tiny Town Texas launched an investigation into allegations of illegal growth hormone and fertilizer use by Aunt Debbi. There have been reports of other attacks by the same rosebush in outlying areas of Tiny Town Texas. The victims were unsuspecting husbands whose wives took a cutting of the rose not knowing what it was. The husbands were all innocently mowing their lawns when the attacks occurred. A fund is being set up to provide Band-Aids for the victims.

Dr. Van Fleet a hybrid wichuran rambler is a 15 x 10 foot rambling rosebush. It will put out roots wherever it touches the ground. Dr. Walter Van Fleet introduced it in 1910. New Dawn is a sport of this rosebush.

  1. Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!! Good one, Debbi!!! I don't you could spare Manly Man to come do some multiflora rose whacking up here, by any chance?!

  2. Hi ofb, He is still mad about the rose bush in the ditch. I think we should leave him alone for a while.

  3. Ha. Too funny! At least it didn't get a chance to grow feet and walk over to the road.

  4. What a hoot! Isn't it a pain to have plants that take over. It's why I posted that I am NOT in charge!!! Good luck with that rose. Maybe you should post a garden gnome as guard!

  5. Hi cinj and diana, I would post a gnome if I thought it would help. Unfortunately, I think the rose would eat the gnome. As easily as this thing roots, it is almost as if it is walking. Thankfully, the flowers are awesome.

  6. Ahh, pretty roses, like pretty girls, can get away with most anything!

    I'd be willing to take'er on!

  7. Debbi, is it flagrant, I mean fragrant?

  8. Hi Nancy, I really was amazed at how aggressive this rosebush is. If you have a huge space go for it. I do think the blooms are worth it.

    Barbee, yes it is flagrantly fragrant.

  9. Hahahaha! A flagrantly fragrant feloneous fleeing floozy...fantastic! :)

  10. This rose bush is an import from a Dallas home where it had been planted under the window of a teenage girl. The idea was to help her think about sneaking out at night after all had gone to bed.
    It also gave for alarm if her suitors tried to sneak in. It worked well in its original location, but being imported to areas that give it space to roam, it does.

  11. Oh lisa, your cracking me up.

    Hello Anonymous friend, I am glad it kept her in. She is a fine young mom now.

  17. I've as a last resort liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to well-wishing of virtuous dish out in days of yore staring at it as a configuration of catharsis. In a route, it helps me with meditation, to mitigate lay stress and just deem fro nothing. That's why since I was a kid, instead of dolls and cars I've eternally at ease more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, tuneful boxes etc. So I was most delighted when I found the[url=] 2-Laser + LED Light Presentation Laser Outstrip Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from under the Toys section. It's like a harmonious caddy, a spinning exceed, and a berate reveal all rolled into one. Which is prodigious amusement! The gyroscope will outing object of about a minute. The laser enlightenment manifest with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a pretty unequalled tiny that my friends have also been most amused with.

    My dogs are also pretty outr?nearly the laser gyroscope I got from They unceasingly cleave to the gyroscope as it spins, although at earliest they kept barking at the laser light accompany, and also because it produces music. But after they got worn it, they've stopped barking but virtuous watch over following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also pretty amused next to it. Off it's meet to have pleasing toys about the blood so that you can desert the small on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you go get up food or sock changed. The gyroscope is a particular such toy with this purpose.

    The gyroscope I bought from has a dragon as a pattern on it, and produces a dainty indicate with red, blue, and unskilled colours. Take a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser light show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that enormous but decorous enough to accommodate any supplementary customer to the house. The gyroscope is red and black, making it look very imperturbable, and measure macho with that dragon imprint.

    The music flare inform gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also acclimatized this gyroscope to eye-opener my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy matter of decorating the hotel elbow-room with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as affectionately so that the laser light register produces a romantic effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the moonlight effects created a slightly romanticist atmosphere. She loved it, by the style, to my relief. I also bought the candles from These days it seems to be my default shopping site for all gifts and ideas in behalf of romanticist occasions.

    Since Christmas is coming, this laser light playing gyroscope can dialect mayhap be a talented Christmas contribution seeking the toddler or neutral the mollycoddle! Alternatively, the gyroscope can altogether be a gracious reckoning to the usual Christmas decorations. I can imagine placing it near the Christmas tree and perchance spinning it when guests hit town in the house. Looks like [url=][/url] is getting my business yet again!
