Do you seek advice?

Sage

Although this is sage, it has nothing to say.

Following the failure of many of your readers to get the "fox" pun, perhaps you should do a nudge nudge or italicize "sage." But I gotta say, Professor, that doesnt look like the Sage I grow in my garden.

Ann Althouse said...

You have garden-variety sage, I guess. This is the good stuff. From Olbrich Botanical Gardens.

Roger said...

Thanks--BTW--if you want an interesting taste, take garden variety sage leaves, rinse them off and pat them dry, then fry for about ten seconds in hot olive oil--drain, dust with kosher salt, and enjoy. Makes a great antipasti.

Ann Althouse said...

Yeah, I've had that.

Can't pick the leaves at the Bot. Garden though.

There's a difference between "advice" and guidance.

It might be sage, but don't just brush off the fact it can't speak.

Italics added for clarity.

"Do you seek advice?"

Not often, but I frequently give it freely.

People who ask plants for advice probably need more than advice.

MM: Careful! I resemble that remark. Or, at least I talk to my plants. If they start talking back, however....

There is clearly a snarky political message embedded here. I don't know what it is, but I'm sure Wade will tell us.

On the remastered Live At Leeds, Pete's introduction to "Young Man Blues" is included, where he mentions that (song writer) Mose Allison is referred to as a "jazz sage, and quite what that means I don't know..."

Moon pipes up, "It's a flavor of chicken".

Wade Garrett said...

Seven Machos - The only "political message" here is that this post is lame.
