A pain, indeed. Our cats get the seeds caught in their fur, causing tangles, (or helping to spread the wretched plants).
And another pain - I am allergic to them. If they touch my skin, the roughness causes me to come up in large red weals. I hate the things. And the root is so small and fragile that they are the very devil to get rid of!
