Wait. What in the FunkyTown Forrest is This Nonsense?

2020 is doing ALL the B-movies. 

 


The headline explains the situation satisfactorily but, while the question posed is never answered, this quote stood out. 

"We don’t want people opening those up, don’t put them in the mail, certainly don’t plant them. Contact us. Let us pick them up. Treat them like they are radioactive, like they are Kryptonite,” Miller said.

A bunch of seeds are showing up in peoples mailboxes, that the people did not order and nothing is known about except that they have been traced back to Communist Coronastan; yes; China.

This could be something as simple as an Amazon review scam, or it could be something more concerning. 



I guess we'll know soon.

2 A woman a couple towns over from me allegedly got some and planted them (She was on the local news so I do not discount the possibility it was a faked up story to....get on the local news).
Nothing happened, seeds didn't even germinate. Apparently the USDA has identified some of them as sericea lespedeza, a nasty invasive species we stupidly imported from there in the '30s for erosion control and grazing (though it's bad for cattle, very high in tannins).

the photo of some I saw looked like sunflower seeds.
I suspect "brushing scam" but since it's 2020, who even knows any more. Actually "brushing scam" would be a welcomely boring explanation
