    First time I googled American Beauty Berry the article I read said they were toxic and that birds wouldn't even eat them. My observations of them in my yard bore out this assessment. They went untouched by anything. Everything I have read since has been to the contrary.

    OooooKaaaaayyyy, well, then, maybe when the berries get ripe again and I'll get one and drive over to the ER entrance and eat it then, or maybe just lick it, or not.
