foreign dignitaries when he leaned against a fence and was pulled
headfirst into the pack of thorny stems and meat-eating flora that edge
the lawn. "I should have known it was almost feeding time," said a
surprisingly high-spirited Obama, whose neck and legs were still
covered with bandages.

Read the whole story here.  I wonder if The Onion is in need of a full-time garden editor?  Hmmmmm…
