Speed planting for the singles?

By johnboy - 28 March 2012 24

Well it’s got to be better than slamming cheap sparkling white at Uni Pub.

ACT Landcare have sent in a marvellous flyer with this note:

Landcare Singles – Speed Planting, organised by ACT Landcare and Greening Australia on 22 April.

Landcare for Singles is a great opportunity to get out and meet new people while doing something positive for the Environment and having a great time.

It is a morning of tree planting out at Bullock Paddock Rd, Uriarra Forest followed by a free tasty lunch on-site.

Registrations are essential.

To re-iterate, it’s free, but you do need to register.

Let’s get cracking with the root jokes commenters!

What’s Your opinion?

Heh – it’s always funny when he tries to explain things that he has no idea about.

I always thought he was a she: am I in fact a misogynist?

There are no girls on the internets.

It all comes down to whether you can sow your seeds at the end of it all…

Pseudo modest cough: Is there an echo in here? (See #1.)

Because you’d have to be a hippy to plant a tree? I feel sorry for you if that’s what you really think.

Yep, I definitely think only hippies plant trees. I’m also thinking of running for the legislative assembly on a “Prevent Hippies Breeding” ticket, with the intent of introducing anti-hippy-breeding legislation into ACT law as soon as possible. The rest of my platform will include banning pushbikes, outlawing vegetarianism, drilling for oil in Tidbinbilla, and making it compulsory to club baby seals each day.

Either that or I’ll run on a “help a hippy, teach them how to understand sarcasm” ticket.

Which of those works for you?

Please, don’t, or we’ll have ThatUniStudent explaining what sarcasm is again, and I just had a very nice lunch.

I believe this rhetorical device is now known as a ‘Clive Palmer retraction’.

I believe it’s not a retraction, it’s just cranking up the sarcasm level to 11.

And I’m pretty sure he’s a member of the Motorist Party anyway.

What a great idea to get some free labour.

I might organise a singles gardening event for my back yard.

Encouraging hippies to mate? There should be a law against it.

Weren’t the original “flower power” hippies known as the “free love generation”? Maybe it had something to do with the contraception revolution. Regardless, it would appear they require little encouragement.

This sounds like a great idea. Good on them.

So let’s get this straight – free food?

Don’t let your speed fall on barren ground.

And what could be more romantic than Bullock Paddock Road?
