On Shakespeare and flora

Would a Rose of Sharon smell as sweet 
If it were named a hollyhock?

La Bocca della Verità sotto Brooklyn

As we New Yorkers know too well, many people attempt to leap over turnstyles and crash through alarmed gates (SCREEEECH) to obtain free access to the New York Subway system. Well, Brooklyn has had enough! A posse of Anonymous Toll Collectors has recovered the dreaded Brooklyn Mouth of Truth and installed it near the access to the Brooklyn Museum and Botanic Garden Station.

As many of you know, a Mouth of Truth confiscates the hand,  foot, or at least the sleeve and cuff of any person attempting to perpetrate a fraud while drawing near to the Dreaded Slot. 

How, you may ask, does one seduce a subway fare thief to stick anything into such a thing as the Mouth? Well!  This Mouth has been equipped with an original Star Trek patented Tractor Beam! 

Be very careful.
