“May the world be peppered with Garden Spicers by Monday,” we wrote on Friday, tickled by the emergence of cutout Sean Spicer heads designed to be tucked into bushes and shrubs. Our wishes came true, because the nation’s greenery is now serving as a refuge for the Trump administration’s embattled press secretary.

The #GardenSpicer trend came about when Spicer hid from reporters not in the bushes, but among them, in the wake of the firing of FBI Director James Comey.

Facebook user Lisa Kadonga got things started with the idea. She has since updated the post multiple times with the means for people to make their own Garden Spicers.

Garden Spicers have been popping up in bushes, house plants, office greenery, and elsewhere all weekend, with the results unfolding on Twitter via #GardenSpicer. The trend has even found its way overseas.

Being out in the wild has even ushered Garden Spicer into newer, more frightening forms, such as Septic Spicer.

The movement has also inspired a liberal alternative to the right’s desire to “drain the swamp” (which seems to be going great, by the way) in “pruning the garden.”

And perhaps most fittingly, Spicer even made an appearance outside Washington, D.C.’s scandalous Watergate Hotel.

Perhaps this last one is a good thing. Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
