I have one on my kayak..does that count?

Most people get them in Hawaii. I also got the Hawaiian frangipani necklace, and once got a comment that another work colleague had the same necklace. I asked her where she got it (hoping it wasn't a $2 shop style thing) and she got hers in Hawaii too.

Similarly I used to see heaps of hand painted "bomber vans" with the word "wicked" painted across the front. :shock:

I wondered for a couple of years what it meant. :?

Eventually I found out it was a car rental company. :roll:

Just how wide spread is this cult, is it just a coastal thing or have they spread across this whole country, infiltrating every aspect of our society?

Should we be worried?

Have you seen them in your area?

News from western NSW, yes, they have made their way to Dubbo. I have been forced into two cars with these flowers on the windows, not just on the back, but on the sides as well!! One girl had them all over the paint on her new Toyota too, on the bonnet and the boot, the doors, windows and everywhere you looked. She even had a pretty yellow and white flower hanging from her internal mirror. I think it's some kind of hippie revival.

The President has been informed and he is working on outlawing them, the flowers AND the hippies. :) ;)

MiniZyth1 got taken over a few months ago. Last weekend she was threatening to grow the silly things. I was threatening to kill them...
With the movie "The invasion of the body snatchers" currently in production (as "The Invasion") my guess is that rather than melon looking things that might scare small children the invaders are now fragiapanis..
They take over your mind and before you know it you're a mindless zombie..

I'm not worried about them, I'm more worried about a car that's always parked outside my place with some weird Geocaching Australia Sticker on it, what sort of a club is that 8)

NEWSFLASH: Recent Alliance Shifts Underground Balance of Power.

It has been reported that after historic growth in size and power, the recently established Frangipani cult has formed an alliance with the longstanding Westside Choppers....


:? I saw a car today with fragipani stickers on one side of the back window (and down the side) juxtaposed against a sticker for Westside Choppers. The hippies are getting tough?¿

It's certainly spreading. I saw a black Rav4 with one on the Logan Motorway.
