A New Use For Worm Beds

A friend came home one day to find cyberporn had invaded her family computer. Livid at the ugliness and her sense of helplessness, rage inspired an "action".

Before deleting the porn, she deliberately ran a full set off on her copier; then happily fed it through her paper shredder. Not satisfied, she scooped up the shredded paper garbage into a black plastic bag and headed for the garden.

After digging a worm bed (in the shade), approximately 2-1/2 x 3' and loosened for worms about 6"-8" deep, the new bed was sprinkled with shredded leaves and encouraged with a little water.

Next, she added the dampened contents of the plastic bag and encouraged it again.

The black bag was deftly pinned over the bed.

The worms were left to do their work -- turning human porn, back into Eden's earth.
