“Could anyone give me a fern? (Asking for a frond)”

"asking for a friend” shouldn’t be confused with “asking for a frond,” but there are many jokes. “Palm oil is really bad for you, right? I’m asking for a frond” was posted on Twitter by “absolute unit tester” on March 25, 2009. “Does anyone know a good place to meet and socialize with other large, finely divided leaves? Asking for a frond” was posted on Twitter by (((Josh Malina))) on April 27, 2012.

Wikipedia: Frond
A frond is a large, divided leaf. In both common usage and botanical nomenclature, the leaves of ferns are referred to as fronds and some botanists restrict the term to this group. Other botanists allow the term frond to also apply to the large leaves of cycads and palms (Arecaceae). “Frond” is commonly used to identify a large, compound leaf, but if the term is used botanically to refer to the leaves of ferns and algae it may be applied to smaller and undivided leaves.
