Sentence: Trevor spent the better part of the day treating the golf course for various weeks. All was going well until he reached the green at the 15th hole. He tried everything in his arsenal to kill the bright yellow flowers only to come back to find them standing as tall as ever. Finally, he decided to put on his gloves and yank the weed out by its roots. The joke was on him though - the next morning he found that the damndelion had fought back and brought an army of yellow crusaders to invade the green. Trevor looked upon the field of yellow and exclaimed "Damndelions!!".
