We used to sneak up on the green garden hose and tie it up into knots. Then we'd sit on the porch and laugh ourselves sick while the hose struggled to untie itself.
(Be warned: This will make your green garden hose VERY mean!)
In august, when the green garden hose sheds the metal ring on its mouth, it has been known to swallow people.
If this happens, you need to paint yellow stripes on another garden hose and throw it onto the hose that has swallowed the victim and yell "SNAKE...!!"
This will cause the green garden hose to deliver up its prey, to make itself lighter for the attack.
You can also cut the offending hose into 3" lengths, boil it for several hours until tender, and then stuff vienna sausages into the hose segment for a great party snack. The guests at the party can also have fun blowing vienna sausages back and forth at each other through the hose segments.
In the winter, the green garden hose usually curls up next to the porch or garage and hibernates.
