Looks like it got drunk from that beer bottle right there.

Fern, because it's not one.

I can't believe I actually clicked on the picture of the plant, to see it closer.

What the heck is going on in that picture to the left of the plant? I don't even want to know.

If it's a girl, Gladys. If it's a boy, Sven.

John Greenleaf Whittier, named of course after the influential American Quaker poet. Come on, people, he wrote "The Song of the Vermonters, 1779" in 1828:

###########

"Hurrah for Vermont! For the
land which we till

Must have sons to defend her
from valley and hill;

Leave the harvest to rot
on the fields where it grows,

And the reaping of wheat
for the reaping of foes."

###########

I think the name fits. The Greenleaf part if obvious. The Whittier part is because Alison and her sister are both whittier than any of us.

i like the name "bologna".
id say it has a special ring to it.
and the trickery in the spelling/pronunciation...classic.
