But can we agree that this is, in fact, a kangaroo paw?
My sister -- whom I have repeatedly publicly stated is prettier and smarter and funnier than me -- must be correct in saying the plant I call a kangaroo's paw isn't. But I think we'll all agree that the Kangaroo Protection Coalition knows a kangaroo paw when it sees it.
