The Cacti Clowns!

A good laugh is always nice. *Warning---if you are drinking coffee swallow it now*


An elementary school class started a class project to make planters to take home to their parents.

They wanted to have a plant in it that was easy to take care of, so they decided to use cactus plants.

The students were given green-ware pottery planters in the shape of clowns which they painted with glaze.

The clown planters were professionally fired at a class outing so they could see the process.

It was great fun!

They planted cactus seeds in the finished planters and they grew nicely, but unfortunately, the children were not allowed to take them home.

The cactus plants were removed and small ivy replaced them and the children were then allowed to take them home instead.

The teacher said cactus seemed like a good idea at the time. Now scroll down !!!!!

May the rest of your day be the best of your

Oh David!
This is hilarious.
I'm glad you warned us about swallowing our coffee first, I would surely haved choked on it!
Did they not realise what it would have looked like!
Brilliant, thanks for this, you have made my day.

Try as I might, I just cannot remember the whole joke that I heard some 40 years ago ...about
a cactus....and how a 'little prick wont hurt you'
Old age is taking its toll.
PS Do you think this is a 'put up' job?
