Though a quiet and seemingly humble foe, it seems our City has been overrun by marauding hordes of feral radish. To combat the Radish Menace, park maintenance officials today reached for the nuclear option.
Sources tell Bernalwood that in closed-door meetings, Fleet Admiral Alice Waters had vehemently opposed this proposal. Instead, Waters favored the use of a counterinsurgency technique that she called “The Salad Strategy.” But in the end, her plan was overruled.
Meanwhile, Bernal Journal is not pleased:
They're poisoning the hill again today. Hope your pet insurance is up to date.Non-native plants? Next they'll be removing non-native people!—
