FTFA:  Tumbleweeds aren't considered as having any redeeming value

which followed this bit:

Tumbleweed seeds, foliage and stems are eaten by a number of desert dwellers, including quail, ground squirrels, pocket mice, prairie dogs, kangaroo rats and mule deer.

So which is it? If it serves as a food source for wildlife, then it follows that it must have some value, if not to organize agriculture, at lest to the biosphere.

It also seems to be an awesome way to make a "snowman" in the southwest.

There's a neat story about the woman who made a 'Tumbleweeds for Sale' web site as a joke or maybe it was just a demo for a Internet provider.

Orders starting rolling in, though, so they started shipping tumbleweeds and it's a decent business.

No time to Google right now, please share the URL if you do.

Good thing you didn't, or you would've gotten a scene from McBain's standup routine...

Homophone puns, how do they work?

I think the point is that those animals could eat ANY thing else, and if it meant having to not have a tumbleweed snowman in order not to ever see tumbleweeds again, I'd make the sacrifice.

HATE those farking things.

They really don't have any redeeming value.

That had better have been unintentional.

This headline went over my head until I read it a couple times.  For some reason I was thinking of Melissa McCarthy and trying to find the relationship with tumbleweeds.

Tumbleweed wasn't a big problem before mandatory vaccination programs.

After (hopefully) a quarter of a lifetime living in New York City, I ended up in Wyoming one summer, and all the wild west scenes replayed out in real life for me, I heard Coyotes howl at dusk, I saw a Native American in traditional dress who wasn't showing off for tourists, and tumble weeds blew by while I walked down the road. I loved it.

for about 24 hours,  then I realized I was in a poor deserted area with wildlife running around

Tumbleweeds aren't considered as having any redeeming value, althoough a study did reveal that tumbling tumbleweeds soak up depleted uranium from contaminated soils at weapons testing grounds.

If that's not intelligent design, I don't know what is. Looks like Gawd wants us to build nuclear weapons.

They were imported for use as erosion control.
Didn't work, and then they spread like wildfire.
Last time I drove through Northern New Mexico, I hit a dust storm. A big ol' tumbleweed smacked into the side of my car at 75 mph. Damn thing just exploded.

Kudzu has numerous redeeming qualities that tumbleweeds could never hope to emulate.  Hiding a body is impossible with tumbleweeds.

Some stories claim that it was brought to America by Ukrainian farmers, but it's exactly origins are tricky to pinpoint.

Based on this sentence, I'm guessing China.
