The idea is that there's a species of cactus that uproot and stampede every few generations or so. When they do, people go out and try to catch them. Why? Curiosity, rumors of magical powers, the pure adrenaline rush of chasing a 40 mph cactus, other unknown reasons.
I wish I could remember what sparked the idea. Who thinks of stampeding cacti?
