What? Is that bean talking to me?

Is this ridiculous? A laser imprinted bean? "An organic twist on text messaging, this unique canned plant features beans that have been carefully lasered with "Welcome" on the side. Given as friendship, house-warming, or hostess gifts, your recipient simply pulls off the foil top and bottom and adds a little water to the soil. In about a week or so, the bean will poke through the soil revealing the special message." Does that seem bizarre to you?
