It could also come in handy for clubbing to death any passing criminals with bad intentions.

The tastiest Triffid ever ;-)

Looks awfully like a triffid to me.

And weirdly, someone posted a Tromboncino photo on Twitter wondering what it was.

Wow.  I think I saw one of those in the Alien Versus Predator movie.  Love to hear what it tasted like.

That's a doozy Jane, well done. Hope it's good eating all the way down.
