Takara has introduced the Can of Words, a container of soil sown with bean seeds that have had a short, sweet sentiment lasered onto them so when the seeds grow into plants after five days of watering, the goody-two-shoes message is emblazoned on all the leaves.
Although the current messages offered are lovey-dovey sayings such as I Love You, and Thank You, the products spokesman, Ichiro Sasaki, says theres definitely a possibility that messages with a more negative tone like I Hate You, Why Did You Cheat On Me You SOB? and I Hope You Die will become available in the future.
But first, Sasaki says they need to do a little market research and determine if theres a demand.
The nice, soon-to-be bad $6.99 bean plant messages are only in mom and pop stores right now, but Sasaki is hoping they will sprout into big retail outlets soon.
