New Family of Plants

While professional taxanomists are renaming all of the families of flowers left and right, I decided that I am entitled to create my own names for plants. So, last night I declared the existence of a new family of plants to be called the Mysteriaceae (pronounced miss-steer-y-a-see-a). The Mysteriaceae is the largest and most diverse family of all plants. It includes flowers of all colors, most grasses and fungii along with an embarassing large number of trees. For that matter, most of the plants I find along the trail belong to this family.

If you are on a hike and someone starts prodding you to indentify a plant, feel free to call it a Mysteriaceae. That will get 'em off your back.
