Flower Power

Have you ever noticed how much they look like orchids? Lovely!

Robert A. Heinlein

I have indeed, but I put it to you, sir, that more properly put, that should be “Have you ever noticed how much orchids look like them?” in order that “they” are understood to have greater priority than orchids.  For no matter how lovely orchids may be, if I could only experience one or the other ever again, I assure you that I would not pick the flower.
