A gift for someone who has everything.
A small, medium or large tumbleweed to turn into a pet or loving companion. Or you can cunningly turn it into a centerpiece for your holiday table, or a clever coffee table, or a makeshift bed for company. Add it to a pot of water for a delicious soup.
Seriously (or not), Prairie Tumbleweed Farm will happily send you a tumbleweed to do whatever you see fit to do with it. Some discretion advised.
The web site is a hoot, what with pictures of the tumbleweed harvest, and the tumbleweeds growing in neat little rows. It may have started as a joke, but today, owner Linda Katz or Garden City Kansas makes about $40 thousand a year shipping tumbleweeds ordered through her website, and aside from her time and shipping costs, it's just about all pure profit. Sounds like it's ripe for a hostile takeover, to me.
Meanwhile, order one, put it on a leash and give it to some unsuspecting and humorless friend.
