    It’s more of the fact that spelling “Rhododendron” is harder than saying it… so Nick was content with just “pretending” it’s a “Rose”, catching on that it was easier to just let them think it’s a “Rose”, than to spell “Rhododendron”, like they asked at first… So that’s where the joke comes in….

    Old joke, old joke.
    All he had to do was look up at the balloon and read it.
    R-H-O-D-O-D-E-N-D-R-O-N.
    How hard is that?

    Rhododendrons, an ancient species going back at least to the dinosaurs.
    -
    Rhododendrons are a genus of flowering plants found primarily in the northern hemisphere and introduced to Britain in the late 18th century. Some types are now a pest in Britain, because they out-compete many native plants and, because their leaves contain toxins that some animals find inedible, their spread is hard to control. Honey made from rhododendron pollen or nectar can cause hallucinations, loss of co-ordination and vertigo, but only if it has been made by the bees very recently. This is known as mad honey disease!

    ?? There’s no need to cite Webster’s dictionary, either, in a casual discussion.

    Just to be clear: are you saying it is acceptable to directly copy text from work that’s not your own and present it without attribution?

    How did you know? Got it from Wiki. That is your answer to why I don’t cite everything I use. And those I don’t use doesn’t need citing. maybe I get tired but I should put it down so not to confuse you.

    I rattled your cage and it annoys you so much you need to knock me down a peg. Been there done that. Don’t go down that road. You will waste your time on me and produce nothing of your own.

    This is not a formal forum. Nobody is posting for academic credit or profit. In a face to face conversation, I’d ask for a source only if I wanted more information. Unwind your shorts and enjoy the cartoons.
