John's call: "Gardner PLANTS one!"

ANALYSIS: Crisp. Brief. Vigorous, but lacking in cultural reference. Non-musical. Non-rhyme. Non-aliterative. Obvious subliminal sexual imagery.

ORIGIN: This apparently touches upon the physical act of a gardener (as per Gardner's name) in planting a seed. Sadly, it draws no distinction between a flower garden or a vegetable garden. It does not paint a picture of the gardener, bent over the earth, arching his back and groaning as he sets the seed into nature's fertile hole.

SCORE: On the Sterling Scale of Showmanship, it would rate a C+. Unfortuately, it sounds too much like the (extremely sexual) "Georgie juices one" to rate higher.
