Gravity seen leaving the scene with hands in pockets; whistling.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: Mariah wanted for questioning

True, this did happen way out west.

Of all the trees that grow so fair,
  Old England to adorn,
Greater are none beneath the Sun,
Than Oak, and Ash, and Thorn.
Sing Oak, and Ash, and Thorn, good sirs,
  (All of a Midsummer morn!)
Surely we sing no little thing,
In Oak, and Ash, and Thorn!

Oak of the Clay lived many a day,
  Or ever AEneas began.
Ash of the Loam was a lady at home,
  When Brut was an outlaw man.
Thorn of the Down saw New Troy Town
(From which was London born);
Witness hereby the ancientry
  Of Oak, and Ash, and Thorn!

Yew that is old in churchyard-mould,
  He breedeth a mighty bow.
Alder for shoes do wise men choose,
  And beech for cups also.
But when ye have killed, and your bowl is spilled,
  And your shoes are clean outworn,
Back ye must speed for all that ye need,
  To Oak, and Ash, and Thorn!

Ellum she hateth mankind, and waiteth
  Till every gust be laid,
To drop a limb on the head of him
  That anyway trusts her shade:

But whether a lad be sober or sad,
  Or mellow with ale from the horn,
He will take no wrong when he lieth along
  'Neath Oak, and Ash, and Thorn!

Oh, do not tell the Priest our plight,
  Or he would call it a sin;
But--we have been out in the woods all night,
  A-conjuring Summer in!
And we bring you news by word of mouth-
  Good news for cattle and corn--
Now is the Sun come up from the South,
  With Oak, and Ash, and Thorn!

Minor injuries. The tree was all bark and no bite.

Dang! And we picked the exact same image to link to...funny that.

I'm not even sure why this made the local news.
Fark I can understand.
2013-09-27 05:15:31 PM  
I think the tree was just trying to hug back, but that article was still better than "The Happening".

It's a fair cop, but society is to blame.

Maybe Rarity should have taken the broken limbs down, rather than 'spiffyin' them up'.
