I'll warn any dear casual readers, that I don't quite have this figured out yet.

I was cruising Facebook and seeing one-line status updates about football like:
"Sickening way to lose!"
"Go Hawks!"
"Johnson took it to 'em tonight!"

So...I had a thought about countering those with one-liners about permaculture instead. Paul thought priming the pump with a few ideas would help, though admittedly, my ideas are kinda weak. Here's what I wrote so far:
"The swale captured the (water) rush for the win!"
"It's late in the game and Zuke survived the frost thanks to a handy hugel placement!"

Then a friend chimed in:
"The rocket mass stove heated the room to a comfortable 68 degrees in under 5 minutes!"

Anybody have any better one-liners?

To which I replied

Yeah, but did they deflate any of the puffballs (mushrooms)?



Still to weak?
