I'm wondering... what's a weed?

Exactly who gets to decide what is a weed or not? Every time I see a commercial for a weed killing spray the first category mentioned is usually dandelions. Why?? I happen to love them and can't figure out why anyone would want to kill them. Is defining weeds a subjunctive decision? I happen to dislike roses very (very, very) much, so, does that mean I can call them weeds? Hmm...

Also dislike roses, I made an exception for a minature rose my mum gave me, but freudianlly its almost died twice...

She comes round and criticises my garden all the time ( i love my garden very much and can happily talk about plants for hours , sadly enuf) and cos the dandelions are flowering at the moment, I cant bring myself to pull em up ( bad cos there will be many many more later...), theres also a plant called herb robert, little pink flowers and fab leaves, and I even stopped some of that sticky bud plant getting pulled up cos I reckon its kinda interesting....
And the bonus of putting out seeds for the birds is that I have sunflowers growing like weeds in my path, tis gonna make getting to the bench interesting, but hey, things can be pretty and unintentional.... the buddlea that self seeded in one of my wall pots makes the most amazing purpley shower over my yard and butterflies come for miles to see it, and I can sit and watch em , in the sun... so weeds are very good :o)
