It's a pun. It's lame.

The Day of the Triffids - John Wyndham Interesting read for the historical perspective - I can see how this book has influenced many modern disaster / post-apocalyptic novels and movies.However, don't think the book has itself stood the test of time. I found the characters a little to simplistic, and the collapse of society and the new organisations that form childishly naive - we've learned so much since about how the real enemy is always ourselves. This area in particular is where so many authors have taken this basic idea and done a much better job of using SF to portray the less savoury aspects of human nature...
