a few years ago, i was at the Brooklyn Bot. Garden
shop, when these brazilian tourists came in.  they
wanted to buy some tulip bulbs and were asking the
clerk whether they would bloom in brazil!  i mean,
with all the rich flora of brazil, why would they want
tulips?  but people really want what they don't or
can't have it...
