A true story:

I lived in and near Laconia NH for many years. On Union Ave was a KFC that had as a border about 70 rosa rugosa bushs. Each year in the fall I would go an ask permission. I would eventually end up with a new assistant manager, we would have substantially the same conversation year in and year out. Only the face of the new assistant manger would change...

(Me) "Hi I'd like to pick a few of your rose hips".

(Asst Mgr) "But-but we don't sell hips, we only have legs and thighs".

(Me) "OK, I'd like a two piece meal then".

After my meal I would quietly go out and pick some rose hips.

This went on '93 to like '03...
