I received a comment on my previous post, Loony Over Lunar, that was just too hilarious not to share.
I asked my readers "So what do you think? Is planting lunar a bit loony or not?" The following answer was given....
I used to go to school with a boy called Edwin Strange. The irony was that he was really strange indeed. He used to spend his break times in a cupboard - not always the same one, but he felt a need to hide in small dark places.
When we left school he worked in a butcher's shop. He got the sack after he was found making love to an ox liver. He spent the next 20 years in various institutions, and at one time believed he had perfected a way to power the whole of Europe using teaspoons.
He also set out to prove that dogs were robots used by the Catholic Church to spy on sinners. He believed that the earth was a meat and potato pie, being carried on the back of a giant caterpillar, and that the sun and moon were salt and pepper pots.
I mention Edwin for one reason. Last time I saw him, he was sat alone, laughing hysterically. I asked him what was so funny, and he told me he'd read that some people believed in planting stuff accordng to phases of the moon.
That's all I have to say!
