    Good Morning to You!

    Ooola, are you sure that’s a good idea?

    Except that these are Lemian Opposite Berries; the ones that look edible are poisonous.

    Agreed. She grew up learning what not to eat. I think the Lemians will arrest her for stealing berries. Either that, or they will induce hallucinations.

    @BRI-NO-MITE!!

    The berries will induce hallucinations, not the Lemians.

    Don’t forget the Bender factor.

    Exactly! We know that Ooola is too smart to eat something that may be harmful to her, but the Benders are notorious for throwing curve balls!

    Its either a coffee bush or a coca plant. If coffee, she can chew some berries (beans) and get perked up by caffeine (and numerous other biochems). I it is coca, slowly chewing the leaves will let Oola regain enough stamina to carry on through the jungle.

    They’re the same berries as from the Hunger Games! Oh no! But don’t worry, the Lemian guards following her will rush in to stop her just before it’s too late.

    Good Morning Benders and readers of Alley Oop.
    Wondering in the jungle, Ooola’s getting all bruised up.
    Faint from hunger, the berry plant, she is looking at,
    doesn’t have fallen berries, so either animals or birds have
    eaten all the fallen berries or the berries are still green (or
    poisonous) so no one has eaten them. Definitely a
    tough decision. Starve or be possibly poisoned. When
    hunger gets too strong we know what the decision will be.

    Noooooooo, don’t eat the berries, their’re probably knockout berries or worst, look up and maybe you’ll see some bananas or a McDonalds :)

    Gweedo said about 4 bill posts ago:
    If they can have a town limit and downtown signs they can certainly splurge for the no(se) picking sign.


    You can pick your friends, but not your friends’ berries, ya know.

    @rdmacgregor it is coca, slowly chewing the leaves will let Oola regain enough stamina to carry on through the jungle.


    She would also need a small bit of lime mixed in during the chew to extract the alkaloid.

    they maybe ate some of the same berries, and are leaning against a tree disoriented
