    Dandelions were called “Pee-the-beds” in our family going back many generations. Dandelion tea was reputed to have strong diuretic effects.

    Dandelion greens sautéed with bacon. Nice lunch warm salad.

    Cottontail Rabbits eat dandelions all the time. Just another attempt by Berkeley to make funny … that failed.

    Dandelions, higher in vitamin content than most other bitter greens and tasty too!

    Ah, dandelions! (We also grew up knowing their alternate names of “pee your bed”) As long as you cut the central spines out of the leaves and only use the newest and freshest leaves tehy are great as part of a mixed salad or you can wilt them in to curries etc a la saag dishes.

    Traditionally dandelion heads for use in making dandelion wine should be picked on Saint George’s day for best results.

    Also dandelion milk has been utilised as an ersatz rubber latex, and according to my old granny a long long time ago you can also use them in the seed stage for telling the time back in the days before you could buy a quartz wristwatch for the price of a pork pie, when the ludicrous inaccuracy of the process was perhaps a teensy bit less obvious!

    More proof of your unhinged dementia.

    The Tea Party didn’t exist back when this strip was first published but that doesn’t matter to you, does it? Any excuse to throw out more of your wackadoo nonsense….

    You just never stop with the hate, do you? Please, please, PLEASE get back on your meds.

    Back in the 60’s the Stones had a whimsical song called “Dandelion” that was mistakenly assumed to be drug related. The number of college students smoking dandelions would be too long to list.

    And let go of the Tea Party comments-you liberals are obsessed with it; as shown by the IRS scandal. I would say you owe us a big apology.

    It’s Tea Partier with a capital ‘T" and ’P’…also do you work for the IRS, per chance?

    Granny Clampett was the only one I ever heard talk about eating dandelion greens.

    Dandelions are metaphors for life. Eat them and it gets strange. But what a life it is.

    Ever notice that cottontail rabbits have fluffy tails – just like dandelions. Just sayin’…

    I am glad to hear someone who enjoys eating dandelions :-) Dandelioins are NOT WEEDS, they are HERBS!
