If You Can’t Be Bad Ass, At Least Look Bad Ass

Many times in the big, scary world we live in, there are times we need to defend ourselves from the big, scary things out there. Now, without getting all logical and deep… We can all probably agree that:

  • All things aren’t what they seem
  • Some things can seem what they are

So, the problem is in figuring out who is telling the truth and who is fibbing…


Sonchus asper ~ sharp-fringed sow thistle, prickly sow-thistle spiny sow thistle, or spiny-leaved sow thistle DON’T TOUCH!!


Sonchus oleraceus ~ common sowthistle, sow thistle, smooth sow thistle, annual sow thistle, hare’s colwort, hare’s thistle, milky tassel, swinies. EAT ME!!


Here is a case of imitation. They are in the same family, however one would really hurt your pie-hole if you were to eat it, where the other would be a nice, fresh addition to your salad.

This is also akin to the cutie thirteen line squirrel.. Who knew he was going to attack a house sparrow!

Don’t judge a book by it’s cover and know there are many look-alikes out there, so beware!





Aieeee! They all look alike!!
