HNT secret formula

I'm going to be rich!

You see, there's an old family secret, handed down through generations of gardeners, for a plant food formula that will double the size of your houseplants, almost overnight.

I've got some investors interested, so just as soon as I fix the bugs in this blog template (especial apologies to Firefox users), we can start production. I'm thinking of using the brand name "Beanstalk Gold".

And because the raw materials for the product cost absolutely nothing, all the money is profit. As long as I can flood the market before the conglomerates like Monsanto get wind of it, I'll be rolling in it.

In the photo, the black line shows you the difference between the normal size of the plant before treatment, and all the vibrant new foliage that appeared after one week's treatment with Beanstalk Gold™.

I'll share the secret formula with you, if you promise not to pass it on. Just click the image.


The formula has been tested outdoors too, and the people who live here have been enjoying the results from our vegetable garden.

I'd like to acknowledge my late uncle, who passed on the formula to me before he passed on himself.

PS - I'm not serious about going into business, but everything else is true. This is a freelance Taoist blog. So I try to make sure that every true story contains a wee lie. And every lie contains a grain of truth.

Orf to Holland tomorrow, for the next leg of the 'hush hush' would tour. Thence to the secret location in the USA.

barefoot_mistress - thanks for the idea for a cactus-based HNT.

suze - good one.

wdky - it's a GIF file made from 2 stills. You can do it in photoshop and other programs.

becca - good idea for a commercial tie-in with Victoria's Secret. You can have the usual 10%.

Adolf! Zeig! Wonderful days anyway for the adolfs! They can stick their little spitfires up their bottoms after Tuesday! Footie talk! Anyway, I love your mother because she loves me. In the hut, it is a bit pornographic, but that's only because of the film crew. Othewise, it would be just the usual vigourous thing. Maybe the hip replacement will be problematic, but ...later. The birds still sing. I need a kamamudra to seal the juju. I think it can be imaginary. So your mother is sixteen. She is red. She has three hundred arms and two legs. She sits lightly, the way you can if you're not a flatheid, and have tried. So she sits in my lap fully sexually developed, as they say. Held in her three hundred hands is everything that is bad and good in the world. I think she's adorable. But that's just a view. It's not true. It's empty. It's just a view. Anyway, your mother with her three hundred arms is banging my brains out here. Ask her for less arms. I can't keep track of the arms!That would be a help! Hotboy p.s.
