What is metaphorical mulching?

My friend Peter is also known as Metaphor Man. He is always planting thought-provoking sound bites, to see where they spread. Here’s one I particularly like: “A weed is a flower where it’s not wanted.” This is a metaphor for unloved ideas that thrive nonetheless.

Got any other metaphorical mulch you’d like to grow in people’s minds?
