Is this a tribute or a lampoon?
A liquid fertilizer company, Dairy Waste Management, that uses bovine excrement to make Cow Wow commissioned a planter in which to demonstrate the product’s results. At least I think that’s why they ordered it.
This is no ordinary planter, though. It’s a 6-foot-tall chia-pet type container shaped like Rick Perry’s head. The hair-ivy only grows from the scalp, far as I can tell, and not the nostrils and ears.
Oh, and in the name of equal time blah-blah, there's also a version that looks like Bill White, Perry's last gubernatorial challenger.
Then again, maybe that’s Perry’s environmental policy. “Chia-pet heads for everybody!”
Makes about as much sense as some of the other stuff he says.
