True Statements

Rumor Reason
Apparently Rashberries have weak gums, so they like to eat mushy, rotten food. Rashberries eat rotten fruit to romance.

Bart said he could cure 'two in one' or something. We were talking about toadstools and Profitamoles at the time. See Transformations

Did you know Fudgehogs like Poison Ivy? Or was that Thistles? I can't really remember. Fudgehogs like thistles.

Have you met Gretchen, yet? She told me that Sour Sherbats eat pumpkins Eating a Jack 'o Lantern tames the Sherbat.
Have you tried feeding baby pinatas with milk? Babies like milk don't they? Young pinatas grow up much faster when they drink milk, often allowing their full value sooner. Drinking milk is also a requirement for a young Dragonache to transform into it's adult form.
I don't know what Arfur Stout puts in his cookies, but helpers can't resist going into his shop. Arfur's Inn is the place to hire helpers.

Rumor Reason
Before you came to the island, people used to call squazzils by another name...Nonsquirrellel. But it sounds like 'not a squirrel' which is rubbish, so it was changed. RARE using nonpareils as candy mix with squirrels.

Unknown Statements

Rumor Reason
I don't know why Seedos wants to live in the swamp, it's always damp and gloomy. As stated in Chapter 10 of the Storybook, he escaped into the swamp with his Shellybeans during the Ruffian raid. He now calls it home because he grew-up there with his new 'family'.
I don't like to talk about people, but I think Dastardos is some kind of friend of Professor Pester. Dastardos and Pester are in no way related. In Chapter 10 of the Storybook, however, it is stated that Stardos might of been turned into Dastardos by Professor Pester. Something to support this is that Da- is added to the name Stardos. It is unknown if Dastardos and Professor Pester became allies/friends afterwards.
I think a Galagoogoo would appreciate some sunglasses to protect those big eyes.
I've got a friend at the town hall who says Pester changed his name to 'Professor'. He's never ever been to school. It is unknown if Pester does have a 'degree' in evil or not but he does seem to give thought to what insidious thing he will do next. He is also the leader of the Ruffians.
I wouldn't bother buying wire fence it's cheap, flimsy and it doesn't look very nice Wire Fences will not keep in bigger pinatas.They will tear them down. Wire Fences, however, are inexpensive and can be used in creating a pond with almost exact boundaries.
Some plants grow bigger if you put the seeds in a hole. Plants are thought to grow larger when fertilized, and grow faster when planted in a hole.
