Cactus Planters

My mom sent this to me. It’s a pretty bad one, I warn you.

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 r eplaced them and the children were then allowed to take them home instead.

The teacher said cactus seemed like a good idea at the time!

  1. LMAO, oh lordy that cracked me up! Poor teacher, who would have made that correlation until the cactus was planted!


  2. I think there might be a humorous story behind this weatherman as well…

    heh heh

  3. I just finished reading Kunstler’s latest entry, and … well, I just needed this laugh ;).


  4. That is absolutely hysterical! Thank you so much for the belly laugh. I, too, just finished reading Kunstler. Definitely appreciated.

  5. If you were reading him you definitely needed a laugh.

  6. Sheez. Now I’m even more afraid of clowns.

  7. OH MY! We are never too old, it seems, for body humor jokes. Thanks for the laugh!

  8. Belly laughing out loud!!! I have two young sons, ages almost 7 and 8.5. They like to garden at school. They like penis humor. I won’t show them this picture because they will never, ever stop talking about it and maybe their teachers will think they’re learning perversions at home. I can just imagine how much fun my boys would have with this. O lord have mercy.

    I think the whole clown planter thing is so tacky that the poor teacher almost deserves what she got…. Why can’t they plant ’em in plain old flower pots like everybody else? Clowns, indeed.
