Beauty Contest -- The Dandy Lion

It's the time of year when as a child I looked forward to picking a snow-white feathery ball atop a stem, making a wish, and blowing it's white fluffy seeds into the sky. Thanks to children's wishes and the winds of spring those seeds grow a deep thick fleshy tap root that branches year after year. The leaves form a rosette from which a yellow flower will bloom. This year as I sprayed that noxious weed, and dug it from my gardens I thought not of it as a Dandelion, but as a puff-ball commentator known as Rush Limbaugh.
