Why Is Grass Green
Grass is green because it is envious of trees which are much
taller and don't get stepped on like grass does. Trees don't get
mowed every week in the summertime and sprayed with Weed-be-gone.
Also, grass is green because it is filled with chlorophyll not
chloroform that is a green pigment that reflects green light from
the sun and absorbs the other colors. Yeah, right, if you believe
that one, you're pretty green yourself.
Green grass actually comes from elves, who are themselves green.
They sprinkle faerie dust over the earth at night and some lands
on plants and turns them green. In the Winter, the elves hybernate
so grass is usually brown during this time. But, in Spring time,
the elves come back out and start sprinkling again and tinkling
all over the grass, which is great fertilizer.
