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...

Dandelions are also supposed to be a tasty and healthy addition to any salad. Erm, providing they're grown in a proper garden rather than plucked off the street or something, of course.
