Plant Eats Tit

"A plant has killed and 'eaten' a blue tit at a garden nursery in Somerset. Nurseryman Nigel Hewitt-Cooper, from West Pennard, was inspecting his tropical garden when he discovered one of his pitcher plants had trapped the bird. He said he was 'absolutely staggered' to find it had caught the creature. It is believed to be only the second time such a carnivorous plant has been documented eating a bird anywhere in the world."

Why don't they just bring out a plant that devours our sense of wonder and joy?

Sounds like England's tits could use a little warming up…(rubs hands together vigorously).

This is all part of M Night Shyamalan's effort to boost DVD sales, right?

This took place in England? I thought people were supposed to be "absolutely gobsmacked" when something like this happened there, not "absolutely staggered."

does anyone else think it's weird that this "nurseryman" is named after a museum? also, what is a "nurseryman"?
