Now, figure out how to grow that plant on the back of cow, a cow that has wheat growing from its head and sesame out of its shoulders, and gives milk already in strawberry shake form, and McDonald's will beat a path to your door.

If you could grow grass on the cow, you would get a self-sustained cow! Of course, you need at least two cows, so that they could chew on grass on each others' back. One could be named Rob and the other Ross.
It's worse than that. Tomato, peppers (capiscum), eggplant and potatoes are all members of the nightshade family, and I'm pretty sure I saw an ad for a triple-fruit plant recently.
They also like to do this with citrus trees - oranges and lemons etc on the same tree. I consider them to be more novelty than anything else, though. I have enough trouble keeping the original plants alive.
Some people, when well-known sources tell them that fire will burn them, don't put their hands in the fire.
Some people, being skeptical, will put their hands in the fire, get burned, and learn not to put their hands in the fire.
And some people, believing that they know better than well-known sources, will claim it's a lie, put their hands in the fire, and continue to scream it's a lie even as their hands burn down to charred stumps.

It doesn't indeed. I had thought of that, however, since in that episode a baby is found in a box that has "OUROBOROS" printed on it. The people who found him had thought his parents have written "Our Rob or Ross" there, since they couldn't make up their mind on how to name the baby.
Turns out the baby is Lister, who was found in a cartoon box under a pool table. By a twist of fate (or a screenwriter inspiration) Lister later conceives a baby with Kochanski and they both put him into a cartoon box under a pool table, using time travel, of course. So it is revealed Lister is actually his own father.
Is that a spider in your hair? Here, threaten it with this tiny ad:
