Aliens have emerged

In the almost three weeks I was gone from California, my front lawn has been invaded by malicious alien life-forms.

Bamboo shoots, to be precise.

Aside from the fact that you can almost watch them grow - which, admittedly, is pretty cool - these things are terrifying. The biggest ones are nearly a foot tall, bigger around than my wrist, and pointy. It's like the bottom of a tiger pit out there.

That is so weird! The shoots look like the heads of lawn gnomes that have been buried.
