Customer in the Garden Center asks an employee, "How can I get rid of the bamboo roots in my garden?" :confused:

Employee responded, "There are a lot of herbicides you can try, but the best way is to pour gasoline on them. Use it occasionally until no more bamboo shoots appear." :eek:

Sheesh! Where is my EPA ID when I need it? :rolleyes:

NICE!!! Just what we need is borg employees starting a forest fire in FLA....."But I was told to do it....explains the guy to the fireman putting out the fire in his neigborhood....what is it like 120 degrees down there this time of year...I would think gasoline would almost be combustable right out of the can.

As crazy as that sounds, and I most likely would never do it myself, it's not the first time I've heard that advice given. In my area, there is a LOT of bamboo for some reason, and all the 'ol timers I've talked to have said, "Just dump a little gas on it. Kill it right off..." :eek:

Hey, whatever works!! :rolleyes:
