They are edible also.

stomach acid makes a wonderful organic herbicide (when it stays in your stomach, not suggesting one regurgitates on invasives). Best not to eat the spiny parts though. I haven't eaten these but have indulged in artichoke thistles which taste just like the kind you buy at the store.
