phrase of the day

As we begin to uncover the ideological roots of the rubber plant...

Svetlana Boym examining a famous Soviet painting from the Stalin era, "Moving to The New Apartment."
Svetlana Boym, Soviet Everyday Culture: An Oxymoron?

For some reason, I find this phrase absolutely hilarious. To me it's a perfect case of unintentional humour. Yet, it somewhat saddens me too - it's a sad realization that I will never be able to write something like this; even if I wanted to.
