...and Deliver us from Daffodils.

Eating daffodils is not a good idea because they’re toxic and can make you ill. OK, got that. But what about this:

Public Health England has written to all the supermarkets urging them to keep daffodils away from food displays as they might be mistaken for onions or Chinese vegetables. Good thinking, PHE. Let’s have a few illustrations to prove the point.

This is an onion.

 This is a Chinese vegetable,
chosen for its similarity to
the daffodil.

This is a daffodil doing a 
startlingly good impersonation
of the other two.

Can anybody tell me how the human race has survived its journey through countless millennia and still ended up in this paranoid place called Modern Times?
